In this post we discuss mouthwash. Many Texas residents use mouthwash to freshen their breath and help retard tooth decay. Mouthwash should never be used exclusively though, good oral hygiene starts with thorough tooth brushing and flossing. Stephen T. Cutbirth DDS, your dentist in Waco, reminds you that mouthwash is an optional tool in your dental hygiene tool box.
It is important to know what kind of mouthwash you are using. Some merely mask bad breath while others help reduce the bacteria that causes plaque and bad breath.
If you are one of the Waco residents that suffers from bad breath it is important to choose a mouthwash that contains ingredients that help prevent tooth decay such as fluoride. But Texas men and women also need to use caution when using mouthwashes because many of the ingredients are dangerous when the recommended amount of mouthwash is exceeded.
At Steven T. Cutbirth DDS we want everyone to have great smelling breath, but to use caution when treating their bad breath. Make sure to read your mouthwash label and follow all instructions given.
