From The Experts: Pinecrest Dental Answers Your Questions About Mouthwash

Posted May 2, 2016.


What Purpose Does Mouthwash Serve?

We learn at a very early age that daily brushing and flossing are necessary habits to clean our teeth and care for our gums. But you may begin to wonder: “What more can mouthwash do for me?”

Mouthwashes are used for more reasons than you may realize, some of those being:

to freshen breath
help prevent or control tooth decay
reduce plaque
prevent or reduce gingivitis (the early stage of gum disease)
reduce the speed that tartar (hardened plaque) forms on the teeth
We’re Here To Help You Improve Your Oral Health Care Routine! One of the most important things to remember is that rinsing your mouth with mouthwash does not replace daily brushing and flossing! Mouthwash is meant to act as an aid to brushing and flossing, helping to freshen breath and fight bacteria. If you have any more questions about mouthwash, let us know! Thank you for your trust in our practice!
