The challenge will take us to a 6-week journey towards achieving the six essential signs of a healthy mouth with this new purple mouthwash the Listerine Total Care.


Week 1: Pre-Dental Check Up at any Villareal Dental Clinic Branch (check)

Pre-Dental Check Up for Listerine

Each of the challengers were asked to go through a Pre-Dental checkup so they can assess our total oral health and see the improvements we will get after using the Listerine Total Care mouthwash in a period of 6 weeks.

Pre-Dental CheckupPre-Dental Checkup

I went to the Global City Branch of Villareal Dental Clinic and I love how fun and friendly the staff and dentist were . During the pre-dental checkup, each of my teeth was checked for cavities, tartar, plaque, odor,  even my gums and breath was  assessed. Honestly, it was the first time I had such a total mouth health assessment .

Teeth Condition Chart

They used a chart that indicates the state of your teeth, if its clean, good, bad or worst. Zero (0) to 2 means your teeth are in tip-top shape, 3-5 means you need to take your oral health care seriously.

I’m glad I mostly got 0’s with a few 1’s, 2’s and some 3’s which means my teeth is okay.


The dentist said generally, my upper teeth are in good condition with a minor problems at my lower teeth (backside) that has some tartar deposits. However, I should not be alarmed as this kind of deposits behind the teeth near the tongue is very common and can be addressed with a regular cleaning only your dentist can provide.

Having said that, this will be my target for the Listerine Total Care. Do you think I will be able to get rid of these deposits in my mouth in 6 weeks time?
