Did you know your dentist, Dr. David Blackhurst, recommends rinsing your mouth with mouthwash at least once a day? Well, it’s true! So, make sure to include swishing with antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash daily. This can help you, your smile, and your oral health in many ways. To explain, our dental team is happy to list the reasons why rinsing with mouthwash is important, which are:

-Rinsing can kill bacteria in your mouth. If you use antibacterial mouthwash, it can stop the plaque growth on your teeth and gumline, which can help you prevent gum disease. Gum disease is a serious and dangerous dental issue.

-Rinsing can strengthen your teeth. This is the case if you use fluoride mouthwash. This is extremely helpful because the fluoride seeps into your smile and nourishes the enamel. This can help your teeth fight tooth decay and enamel erosion regularly. In fact, it’s best to expose your teeth to fluoride regularly.

-Rinsing can give you pristine breath. This is because it kills the odorous bacteria in the mouth, cleans the entire oral cavity, and even removes bacteria from the tongue.
