Although mouthwash is easy to use and readily available at most shopping stores, the quest to find your ideal mouthwash can be an arduous one. To avoid getting lost in transition or sidetracked with other benefits, always stick to mouthwash products that enhance oral health first, and then focus on your aesthetics.

When your teeth are clean, they are less likely to suffer from tooth decay and cavities. Although mouthwash should never be used in place of brushing and flossing, it is effective as a supplemental tool to use when brushing or flossing should be avoided. Typically, after meals, your teeth may be extra sensitive and toothpaste may be too abrasive at this time. Instead, use mouthwash to clean your mouth and brighten your smile.

Know what type of mouthwash you desire, and what benefits you are looking to have. Some mouthwash products focus on freshening breath, while others strengthen tooth enamel with fluoride supplementation. Some newer mouthwashes have made the leap in providing teeth whitening benefits to remove stains and discolorations. As with all oral health care tools, speak with your dentist to determine which products are right for you.
