Why Mouthwash Is Essential to Your Oral Health

Posted on 9/11/2023 by Rho Family Dentistry
Why Mouthwash Is Essential to Your Oral HealthEveryone enjoys a fresh breath. It comes a long way to maintaining your relations with people. A stench will always discourage people from interacting with you. When it comes to your oral health, a stench is related to underlying dental conditions. However, after the dental checkup, you will be advised to use mouthwash in cleaning your mouth. The question is, why mouthwash?

Freshens Breath and Kills Bacteria

Do you need a clean and fresh feeling breath? If yes, you need to get a mouthwash. It gives your mouth a fresh feeling. It also helps in combating the bacteria present in the mouth, these bacteria are responsible for the foul smell. In the process of rinsing your mouth with mouthwash, you eliminate the bacteria leaving your breath revitalized. Regular usage helps in reducing the occurrence of cavities and reduces the risk of developing plaque.

Prevents Gum Disease

Regular use of mouthwash prevents periodontal diseases which are commonly known as gum diseases. Mouthwash prevents the buildup of plaque since it reaches the areas that the brush and the floss could not. It also heals and soothes gum irritation

Strengthens Tooth Enamel

Mouthwash contains fluoride, a mineral substance that is responsible for reversing dental cavities and building strong teeth enamel. The enamel is the outer layer of our teeth that is exposed to foods and any substance that we insert into the mouth. Fluoride also makes the enamel resistant to acidic attacks. Regular use of this product is characterized by improved and perfect oral health. Dentists recommend that mouthwash should be used in the morning and late in the evening, this is after brushing and flossing your teeth. People with medical conditions like dry sockets, tooth sensitivity, and xerostomia are recommended to use mouthwash.

It is also important to note that there are different types of mouthwash available and they are designed to address specific oral issues. Before choosing the mouthwash to use on your teeth, reach out to our orthodontists for advice and examination. This will help you to choose the mouthwash that is favorable for you. Talk to us today. Your oral breath is as important to us as it is to you.
