If you wish to have a strong, successful, and healthy smile, mouthwash is your new best friend! Mouthwash is a beneficial liquid that will nourish and strengthen your smile each day, and it is something that can add additional protection to your teeth.

There are many beneficial mouthwashes in the oral hygiene isle at the store, including anti-gingivitis mouthwash, fluoride mouthwash, and bacteria-killing mouthwash, and each one can do the following:

• Protect your smile from gum disease and cavities
• Freshen your breath
• Slow the growth of tartar on your teeth
• Remove debris from your smile
• Reduce the plaque on your teeth
• Strengthen and protect tooth enamel
• Eliminate bad breath

If you would like to know which mouthwash is best for your specific smile, we encourage you to talk to your dentist during your next dental appointment at Riverdale Oral Health and Implant Center.

Rinsing your mouth with mouthwash should never replace your brushing and flossing techniques. Rinsing is an additional technique that can further clean and nourish your smile after you have brushed and flossed your teeth. So, you should rinse with mouthwash at least once a day. When you rinse, sip a small amount of liquid into your mouth and swish it around for 30-40 seconds, or however long the mouthwash label suggests. When the time is up, you will spit the liquid into the sink.
