Year-End Smile Upgrades: Mouthwash

Posted .

Although there are numerous forms of mouthwash products on the market today, it is essential to speak with your dentist to determine safe and effective products to use. Although cosmetic mouthwash can be effective at controlling or reducing bad breath, they will not treat or eliminate the bacteria that causes it. Instead, a therapeutic mouthwash will be needed.

In order to ensure your smile has the greatest chance of success, you should employ as many different oral health care treatments and procedures as possible if the need arises. Typically, your teeth are too sensitive after eating to clean them appropriately with a brush. Doing so can allow toothpaste to wear down your tooth enamel through abrasion. Instead, try using mouthwash at this time.

Your oral health care needs should dictate what types of mouthwash you should be using. In order to protect your health care, look for mouthwash products that reduce plaque buildup in the breath, reduce the speed of tartar, and help alleviate and prevent gum disease. For product recommendations and suggestions, please visit your dentist.
