How to Make Sure Your Mouthwash Is Effective

Posted .

Are you about to head to the store to buy mouthwash? If so, our doctor, Dr. Brandon Burger, wants to ensure that you are going to purchase the right product. Unfortunately, there are mouthwashes that do very little for the health and strength of your smile. It’s best to purchase a product that can help you have a better oral health. So, when you’re shopping, it’s best to look for the following characteristics:

-Mouthwash that prevents cavities: This mouthwash has fluoride in it. Fluoride is a natural mineral that strengthens the tooth enamel and helps it fight oral bacteria and acid daily. This mouthwash can benefit you greatly.

-Mouthwash that prevents gingivitis: This mouthwash is antibacterial mouthwash. It kills the germs in your mouth that create plaque. Plaque is a white, sticky film that clings to the teeth and promotes gingivitis, which is the first stage of gum disease.

-Mouthwash that has been approved by the American Dental Association: This Seal of Approval proves that the product is safe and effective in an oral hygiene routine. The logo should be printed on the mouthwash’s packaging.
