If you are routinely suffering from poor oral hygiene even if you brushing and flossing on a daily basis, you may need to improve your smile by adding more oral health care treatments and products to your dental hygiene routine. One highly effective method for cleaning out your mouth is by using mouthwash. Mouthwash not only helps freshen your breath but it can also provide numerous other treatments to your oral health.
The first thing you need to do is make sure that you maintain fresh breath. There are two types of mouthwash that can help with this: cosmetic mouthwash and therapeutic mouthwash. Cosmetic mouthwash, however, only masks the bad breath and doesn’t actually treat the source. Therapeutic mouthwash will go directly to the source of the bacteria responsible for causing bad breath and destroy it.
Therapeutic mouthwash has many other benefits as well. It has been known to help reduce the speed at which tartar develops and can even help prevent and reduce gingivitis, which is an early stage of gum disease. Therapeutic mouthwash has also been known to help reduce plaque and cavities that may be present in your mouth.
