The Top 5 Benefits of Mouthwash

Do you use mouthwash as part of your oral hygiene routine? Most people would assume that brushing and flossing is enough, but mouthwash also has a number of additional benefits.

Gives Fresh Breath

Perhaps the most popular reason as to why it is used, mouthwash gives users fresh and clean breath. Mouthwash has the ability to kill bacteria that is associated with bad breath and leaves a cooling feeling. Mouthwash comes in a variety of menthol flavours to help achieve the level of fresh you want or need.

Removes Loose Particles

The loose particles that form in your mouth when you wake up from sleep are eradicated through the use of mouthwash. You should use mouthwash before you brush your teeth, rather than afterwards, to enable your brushing and flossing techniques to perform better.

Helps Prevent Plaque

Many mouthwashes have the ability to prevent the growth of plaque on and in between our teeth and gums. Whilst mouthwash can help to prevent plaque, it cannot remove it, so it’s important to brush and floss your teeth regularly, along with regular use of mouthwash. Together they can combat any plaque problems.

Prevent Fillings

Mouthwash contains fluoride properties that can help prevent cavities from forming, as well as helping to make your tooth’s enamel stronger. Not all mouthwashes contain fluoride, so check the back of the bottle to ensure the one you’re buying can help to prevent the need for fillings!

Cure Mouth Ulcers

Mouth ulcers can be extremely painful and annoying but using mouthwash regularly you can help to eradicate them in a matter of days. Look for mouthwashes that contain antibacterials such as chlorhexidine. The mouthwash works to detox the area by reducing the number of bacteria in the ulcer.
