Toothpaste and floss are two of lots of wonderful dental tools that are at your disposal as a lifelong dental health devotee. Mouthwash is one product you might want to think about using.

Using mouthwash could be a good addition to your oral health routine if you have a hard time with stinky breath. Though it’s in no way a total replacement for brushing and flossing, rinsing with mouthwash has some of the same effects, namely getting rid of plaque and cavity-causing, leftover food remnants from your oral cavity. Mouthwash can be very powerful, but we still recommend brushing two times per day and flossing each day!

Though rinsing with mouthwash is done to control plaque and clean your oral cavity, there are many beneficial side effects that come from using mouthwash. Mouthwashes can whiten chompers and make breath smell better. They may also support canker sore relief through temporary numbing. With mouthwashes that contain fluoride, cavity control is a beneficial side effect.
