Are you aware of all the benefits that come with using mouthwash? The two main forms of mouthwash that can be used are therapeutic mouthwashes and cosmetic mouthwashes. Therapeutic mouthwashes are extremely effective for helping improve your oral health, whereas cosmetic mouthwashes are only designed to mask the symptoms and freshen your breath.

Mouthwash is effective at times when other cleaning utensils cannot be used. After eating, your teeth tend to be highly sensitive and can be prone to dental abrasion if you decide to use a brush and toothpaste. To help prevent further damage to your tooth enamel, consider washing out your mouth with mouthwash. Mouthwash can remove debris and food particles that can begin to pool.

Through the use of a therapeutic mouthwash, you can help eliminate plaque buildup. Plaque buildup is a thin layer of bacteria that gathers in your mouth on your teeth and is known to cause dental damage. This is because the bacteria can convert substances such as sugars and starches into harmful acids which will eat through your tooth enamel. Mouthwash can help eliminate plaque buildup and even lower the speed at which tartar can form. Mouthwash is also effective for eliminating the bacteria responsible for cavities, gingivitis, and halitosis.
