Use the Right Mouthwash for Your Oral Health Needs

Published on May 26, 2017

Did you know that mouthwash comes in a variety of different styles and treatment methods for a wide variety of different effects? Some products fight plaque, some strengthen tooth enamel, some freshen breath, and some can whiten teeth. Be careful when choosing a mouthwash product, and make sure it is capable of doing what you require of it. Use the right mouthwash for your oral health needs.

Although mouthwash can be highly effective for your oral health care needs, never use it as a substitute for daily brushing and flossing. Instead, add mouthwash as a supplementary cleaning tool, which is often highly effective for use after meals when using toothpaste may be too abrasive for sensitive after-meal teeth.

Most mouthwash products are designed to freshen your breath. However, some work better than others, and some have even been clinically proven to fight the effects of halitosis. Always look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance on a mouthwash product or speak with your dentist to determine which brand or product is best suited for your smile and your own personal oral health care needs.
