Mouthwash comes in a variety of different treatments, including fluoride treatments, enamel protection, plaque removal, whiter teeth, and fresher breath. Always look for mouthwash products that feature the benefits you desire. If you have any trouble, ask your dentist for product recommendations.

Products that feature the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance are highly beneficial because they have been clinically proven to be safe and effective. However, just because a mouthwash can clean your teeth, it should never be used as a replacement for brushing and flossing. Always remember to brush and floss daily and add mouthwash as a supplemental tool when necessary. Typically, mouthwash is most effective after meals or at times when brushing or flossing is not possible.

Never rely on only mouthwash for any of your oral health care needs. Although mouthwash can whiten teeth, even the highest rated mouthwash products still pale in comparison to the benefits of a professional tooth whitening treatment administered by your dentist at our office. A single professional whitening can potentially improve the color of your teeth by up to ten full shades.
