Is your mouthwash doing its job? Mouthwash is a form of dental cleaner that carries a multitude of oral health benefits. Depending on your smile’s needs, choose a mouthwash that can safely and effectively help make your smile shine and give you the oral health care you want. Be careful about which products to use, as some are better than others.

Not all forms of mouthwash are designed to improve your oral health. In fact, many simply focus on improving the look of your smile or freshening your breath. However, even the weakest forms of mouthwash can help to wash away harmful materials in your mouth including plaque and acids.

Mouthwash can fight halitosis, which is more commonly known as bad breath. Some mouthwash products include fluoride, which is a naturally occurring mineral that can strengthen tooth enamel and protect your teeth from decay. Mouthwash products may also contain ingredients for whitening teeth. Speak with your dentist to determine which mouthwash product is right for you.
