Do you ever wonder if there’s anything else you can do to keep your teeth healthy? Naturally, brushing and flossing is important, and mouthwash can help you keep your teeth clean. However, do you know exactly how mouthwash might be able to help you?

Of course, you can reach for mouthwash if you are worried about your breath. Still, did you know that mouthwash can actually cover a number of problems? You should also remember to schedule an appointment with us if you’re using mouthwash to cover your bad breath frequently.

Fortunately, even though mouthwash won’t help you cure all oral health ailments, certain mouthwashes are actually designed to help you prevent gum disease. If you’re interested in this type of mouthwash, you’ll need to find an antibacterial mouthwash. Other mouthwashes, specifically mouthwash with fluoride in it, can actually strengthen your teeth

Another type of mouthwash that could benefit you is a mouthwash with alcohol in it. This type of mouthwash will effectively kill the bacteria that can eventually lead to gum disease and tooth decay. Alcohol-free mouthwashes are often useful for those with sensitive teeth and for children.
