Why Add Mouthwash to Your Oral Health Routine?

Jul 21st, 2015

Maybe you’ve seen the multi-colored bottles of minty-fresh mouthwash in the supermarket and have been wondering what the benefits are of adding mouthwash to your routine. Mouthwash won’t be the answer to all of your oral health needs, so read on to figure out what mouthwash can, and can’t do for you.

When adding mouthwash to your routine, be aware that it is not meant to replace brushing and flossing. Mouthwash is an addition to your oral health repertoire, not a sole component.

Mouthwash is primarily used to keep breath fresh. If you suffer from halitosis, also known as chronic bad breath, then you should consult your dentist about treatment. While mouthwash is mainly for freshening breath, some mouthwash rinses, such as fluoride rinses, can help protect teeth. Some dentists may even recommend certain mouthwashes to help meet oral health needs.

Your dentist can give you additional guidance about what mouthwash might be right for you. Some mouthwashes prevent cavities or can help control plaque, ask your dentist for a sample to figure out what will work best for you.
