2 Reasons to Use Mouthwash

Posted .

You may think that brushing and flossing are all you need to do in order to have great oral health. While that’s technically correct, you can improve your oral health even more by using mouthwash. This is something our team here at Designing Smiles PSC in Sellersburg, Indiana recommends highly.

So let’s look at two reasons as to why our team is behind the use of mouthwash.

Good source of fluoride

If you don’t have great enamel, or want to expose your teeth to more fluoride on a regular basis, then a mouthwash with fluoride in it is a great way to get another source of that mineral in your teeth. There are plenty of mouthwashes with fluoride in them, but make sure you only buy ones with the American Dental Association seal of approval.

Rids your mouth of bacteria

Even after brushing and flossing, it’s likely there’s still some malignant bacteria roaming in your mouth. Rinsing with mouthwash for a minute after brushing is a great way to get rid of all that bacteria and ensure your mouth is as healthy as possible.

Regular mouthwash use can do wonders for your oral health, especially if you struggle with bad breath. If you have questions about mouthwash or want to know which brand Dr. Dennis Jenkins recommends you use, don’t hesitate to call us today at 812-246-3386.
