Brushing and flossing are important, central ways to improve your oral health. If you’re brushing and flossing, we commend you! Have you thought about using mouthwash?

If you want to strengthen your smile and enhance your oral health care, then it is imperative to make sure that you’re using mouthwash. Mouthwash, also known as mouth flush or oral rinse, is a fluid used for cleaning the oral cavity, regularly through swishing or gargling. Using mouthwash will help you remove plaque from your chompers and fight the advance of periodontal disease.

There are two main kinds of mouthwashes: therapeutic and cosmetic. Therapeutic mouthwashes generally contain antibacterial compounds, which help lessen or foil the growth of germs and acids in the oral cavity. While cosmetic mouthwashes freshen breath, they don’t guard your chompers; therapeutic mouthwashes can guard teeth and freshen breath. Therapeutic mouthwashes usually offer features like teeth whitening and cavity prevention. Certain prescription mouthwashes can treat inflammation and dry mouth.
