Adding mouthwash to your daily routine and using it properly can offer your dental health many positive benefits. In particular, mouthwash can treat bad breath and keep it at bay throughout the day so that your mouth can continue to feel fresh and clean. Mouthwash is very helpful for your smile on a daily basis, but should not be a substitute for other oral care habits.

You have a wide variety of options for mouthwash, and choosing the right mouthwash can be a hassle. We invite you to speak with our dentist about what to look for in a mouthwash and if you would benefit from properties such as tooth whitening, breath freshening or fluoride supplementation. We encourage you to choose brands that have the Seal of Acceptance from the American Dental Association, proving that they have been thoroughly researched and meet the ADA’s high standards.

Though using mouthwash every day is an excellent addition to your oral care routine, it should not be used to substitute brushing and flossing your teeth, which are the only habits that can remove harmful acid and plaque buildup from between your teeth and the tooth surface.
