Is it worth paying more for a label that says clinically proven?

Is it worth paying extra for a clinically proven mouthwash, Listerine Cool Citrus to be specific? Or will an own brand version with (as far as I can tell) identical ingredients do just as good a job?

The own brand stuff is less than half the price of the Listerine. Both are water, alcohol, sweetener and small amounts of preservative and other bits and dabs. Both are fluorinated. The only difference seems to be the flavour and more importantly the price. I like the flavour of the Listerine and the fact it's proven to have an effect. But I also like the much cheaper price of the other stuff, which will mean I can use it more often. I just want to avoid wasting money on something I will spit down the drain.
