Reasons You Need Mouthwash

Although mouthwash is not a replacement for good brushing and flossing, it still can be beneficial

 

Makes Your Mouth Feel More Fresh

If you’ve done a great job with brushing and flossing already, you should already have a clean feel. However, if you want it be to more intense, you can use a tasty mint rinse too.

 

Reduce Decay Risk

You may have been recommended by a dentist to use a fluoride mouth rinse if you’re more prone to dental decay and require an added level of protection.

 

Soft Tissue Management

Sometimes if you’ve developed a gum infection, or have had dental surgery, your dentist may have prescribed you a medicated mouthrinse (chlorhexidine)
