If you’ve been experiencing short sharp pain in your teeth when you drink hot or cold liquids, here is how you should modify your rinse routine to adapt to your situation.
Sensitive Teeth Routine
STEP 1: Pour 10ml (2 teaspoons) of a LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE SENSITIVE into a cup.
STEP 2: Without diluting the solution with water, empty the contents into your mouth.
STEP 3: Swish for a full 60 seconds (try counting to 60 in your head, or using a stopwatch). Don’t worry if you can’t get to 60 seconds the first time—it gets easier each time you try.
STEP 4: During rinsing, swish in your mouth.
STEP 5: Spit the solution out in the basin.

Special Considerations For Those With Sensitive Teeth
Acid is rough on all teeth, but even more so when you have sensitive teeth and part of the root is exposed, because acid softens tooth enamel. When eating anything acidic, wait at least 60 minutes before brushing or rinsing. Try and use a straw whenever possible if drinking acidic beverages such as fruit juice or black coffee.
