Are you aware of the risk factors associated with cleaning your mouth successfully? If you are having difficulties brushing or flossing or require an additional level of protection after eating, it is important to try an alternative cleaning treatment such as implementing mouthwash into your oral health care routine. Although mouthwash is never to be used as a substitute for brushing or flossing, it can provide an additional level of protection to help keep your smile safe.

It is important to understand the different types of mouthwash and use the proper ones for whatever oral health care needs you may have. Some products are even capable of removing stains and discolorations, so try using a tooth whitening mouthwash to help provide whiter teeth. However, if you are looking to improve your oral health avoid cosmetic mouthwash, and instead, stick with therapeutic mouthwash. Therapeutic mouthwash is known to help improve your smile as it can even kill bacteria responsible for bad breath. Furthermore, it can reduce the speed of plaque buildup and prevent tartar from forming. Therapeutic mouthwash is also known for helping prevent gingivitis, cavities and other similar oral health ailments from damaging your smile. If you have any questions about which mouthwash will work best for you, speak with your dentist about product recommendations or look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance on product packaging.
