The Role of Mouthwash

A mouth rinse product can prevent plaque build-up. Mouthwash helps fight tartar, which can lead to more complex dental issues. Daily rinsing can be useful for oral health.

An additional benefit of continuous mouthwash is white teeth. Some mouthwashes have low concentrations of hydrogen peroxide, which causes minimal bleaching and does not hurt the gums.


While using mouthwash, it is advisable to brush twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste. Flossing at least once daily, drinking water throughout the day, and snacking on hard foods such as carrots, apples, and celery clean teeth and strengthen gums. Smoking or chewing tobacco can stain the teeth and be detrimental to oral health, so these should always be avoided.


Be aware of the mouthwash you use. If it is just cosmetic, it will not do more than unfix food particles, reduce bacteria, and provide temporary relief from bad breath. A therapeutic rinse has active ingredients that enhance its effects. In addition to fluoride, they may have chlorhexidine, cetylpyridinium, and essential oils.


Never try to ingest mouthwash. Swallowing it can cause vomiting, an upset stomach, and other problems. This is why mouthwash isn’t recommended for young children.
