Holiday Dentistry: Mouthwash

Posted .

Mouthwash is a highly effective oral health care cleaning product to use to keep your smile safe from plaque buildup and residue. However, numerous forms of mouthwash exist only to enhance and freshen your breath. These are known as cosmetic mouthwashes. However, if you wish to reduce plaque, gingivitis, cavities, and even help treat bad breath, a therapeutic mouthwash can be used.

When looking for the perfect mouthwash, it is important to always speak with your dentist to determine your exact oral health care needs and which product will be best for you. Your doctor can offer product recommendations and suggestions to help compliment your professional care you will receive.

Typically, you should look for a mouthwash that is highly effective for removing stains and discolorations as well as any plaque buildup that may occur. It is also important to find a mouthwash that can effectively manage gingivitis and gum disease, and slow down the rate at which tartar will form. Typically, mouthwash should be used at a time when brushing may not be as effective, including after meals. However, never replace brushing with mouthwash, but rather add mouthwash as a supplement tool to your pre-existing oral health care.
