How To Pick The Right Mouthwash

May 29th, 2019

When talking about oral health, people don’t tend to speak as much about the use of mouthwash. It’s a great addition to your daily brushing routine as swishing mouthwash in your mouth for 3o seconds can help clean your teeth and leave your mouth feeling fresh. However, it can be a challenge to choose a mouthwash because of all the options on the shelf. Depending on your dental needs, there are certain mouthwashes there to help you! 

Two main concerns people have that mouthwash can help with are: you may want to whiten your teeth and you may want to reduce bad breath. If you want to whiten your teeth, you should go for a teeth-whitening mouthwash. There are many options out there that can help whiten your teeth and also prevent future stains. For bad breath, there are breath freshening mouthwashes that specialize in reducing the bacteria that may be lingering in your mouth. We would also recommend choosing a mouthwash with Zero alcohol, which is a big plus for people who either have dry mouth or some who wish to avoid mouthwash which contains alcohol.

If you are prone to cavities, this can also play into what mouthwash you should pick. Mouthwashes that contain Fluoride should help prevent cavities, Fluoride helps protect your teeth by strengthening the enamel which can make it more difficult for acids that can cause cavities to affect your teeth. 

If you want more information on how to choose the right mouthwash or if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to give the team at Cornerstone Family Dentistry a call at 705-749-0133, we’d love to help you pick the right mouthwash for you!
