What Do You Know about Mouthwash?

Posted .

Are you aware that some forms of mouthwash can enhance your oral health care beyond just a fresher breath? Did you know that it may be conceivable to use mouthwash products to help stop tooth decay and gum disease? Although mouthwash should never be used as a replacement for brushing and flossing, it has been shown to help keep your teeth white and your smile strong.

As the popularity of mouthwash has increased, so too has its uses. The addition of fluoride to many forms of mouthwash is done to help strengthen tooth enamel and to stop tooth decay and gum disease from occurring. When selecting a mouthwash to help keep your smile clean, look for products that contain the ADA Seal of Acceptance.

Another frequent use for mouthwash is to whiten teeth. Although professional teeth whitening treatments given at our dentist office are by far the safest and highest quality whitening treatments, whitening mouthwash can be used to help assist your smile with further whitening care.

With mouthwash, your smile will not only look better, but you will have fresher breath too.
