Many people use mouthwash after flossing their teeth, in addition to the standard twice-daily brushing. Yet a lot of people believe that the sole benefit of mouthwash is to fight bad breath.

You may be surprised to learn that alongside its refreshing properties, mouthwash helps you maintain impeccable oral hygiene. This reduces the risk of many widespread dental issues, extending the health of your teeth and gums for a lifetime.

Mouthwash ensures protection against dental cavities

Mouthwashes that contain fluoride significantly reduce the risk of dental decay. People planning to add mouthwash with high fluoride content to their dental hygiene regime should know, however, that they need to mix it with water before swishing it around their mouth; failure to do so could have an adverse effect on teeth.

Mouthwash should become one of the products used for oral care, especially among people who have just had a tooth removed or have undergone a gum disease treatment.

Thanks to its antibacterial properties, it could even replace the toothbrush and toothpaste for a while; brushing the teeth can affect the injury sustained after the intervention. Many dentists suggest that using mouthwash temporarily is the best way to keep caring for your teeth until the wound recovers.

Certain mouthwashes available on the market are also perfect for preventing pain caused by sensitive teeth. These special mouthwashes contain an ingredient that coats the open dentin tubules, relieving tooth discomfort successfully.
