The Power of Mouthwash | The Dacula Dentist

To rinse or not to rinse? That’s the question. Many people simply don’t know if there is any real benefit to mouthwash so they do not include it in their hygiene program. So are there any serious advantages to using mouthwash?

Studies actually show that there is. The Journal of Clinical Pediatric Dentistry conducted a study on 16-year-olds and found that using mouthwash did actually reduce dental issues including gingivitis and plaque.  

So what provides mouthwash with such power? Oral rinses and mouthwashes usually contain various bacteria battling ingredients. These agents may include cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC), which has been show to effectively combat bacteria and germs that can lead to dental problems. Of course mouthwash is not meant to replace daily brushing and flossing, the foundation of dental health, but it may be a great compliment in boosting your oral hygiene even more.
