Introducing LISTERINE’s Latest Mouthwash for Sensitive Teeth


LISTERINE®’s newest mouthwash, LISTERINE® SENSITIVITY, is now available. It features a patented CRYSTAL BLOCK™ Technology that provides daily repair of damage by creating a powerful barrier for continuous sensitivity protection for 24 hours,* and it reaches virtually 100% of sensitive areas.1,3 

Most oral care sensitivity products either numb the nerve endings or create a thin protective layer on the exposed dentin.3,4 LISTERINE® SENSITIVITY blocks open tubules by depositing stable crystals both on the surface of the dentin and deep inside the tubules.1,3 It’s clinically proven to give lasting relief*, and it’s U.S. Food and Drug Administration-cleared for its sensitivity benefit.

  • Achieves 99% occlusion after 12 rinses3
  • Maintains 92% tubule blockage even after challenge1*
  • Occlusion from competitive toothpastes erodes by as much as 50% after mechanical and acid challenge1,3†


*With continued use.
