Essentials of Mouthwash

Posted .


Mouthwash is a good tool in any dental-health enthusiast’s tool chest. It can help you keep your mouth clean and your breath fresh, and it’s really not that difficult to use.

Mouthwash’s advantage is its removal of plaque and food remnants from your oral cavity. The liquid substances that make up mouthwash have antibacterial compounds that clean your oral cavity, and the swishing action you do while using mouthwash pushes out leftover debris from the spaces between your teeth, where bacterial acids like to create cavities.

To use mouthwash, pour the instructed quantity (as seen on the container) into a cup and vigorously swish it in your oral cavity for about half of a minute. Once you’ve swished it around for 30 seconds or extra, spit it out into the bathroom sink and don’t consume anything for half-an-hour. And while the main purpose of mouthwash is to toughen and protect your teeth and gums, your friends won’t mind the fresh breath you’ll have as a result of use!

We’d love to teach you more about what mouthwash can do for you, including all about how it helps to foil gum disease. To speak with our Tucson, Arizona, Christopher M.
