Mouthwash is a beneficial oral hygiene tool that can help you in a myriad of ways. Because it’s so beneficial, it’s recommended to rinse with mouthwash at least once a day after you’ve brushed and flossed your teeth.

If you’re new to this routine, our Kevin L. Caldwell, DDS, PC dental team is happy to tell you all about the two different rinses available so you can pick the best one for your smile.

The first helpful mouthwash is therapeutic mouthwash. This rinse can improve your oral health because it can reduce the growth of plaque on your teeth, reduce your chances of suffering periodontal disease, and fight cavities. This rinse can also finish the smile-cleaning job and nourish your teeth with fluoride.

The second helpful mouthwash is cosmetic mouthwash. This rinse can enhance the appearance of your smile and give you a fresh breath. Some washes can whiten the teeth over time while others can leave a pleasant taste in your mouth.

Now remember, when picking a mouthwash, make sure it has the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance on it. If it has this stamp of approval, that means the product is safe for your smile and is effective in an oral hygiene routine.
