Do you find yourself overwhelmed when choosing mouthwash? If so, you’re not alone. Because there are many mouthwash options available, choosing the right mouthwash for your smile can be tough. To help you choose the best product that is personalized to your needs, our dentist, Dr. Sterling Whitworth, is happy to tell you all about the different types of mouthwash available, which are:

-Breath-freshening mouthwash: This is called cosmetic mouthwash. This product’s only purpose is to freshen the breath and whiten the tooth enamel. Now remember: Almost every mouthwash can help with bad breath, no matter which type.

-Fluoride mouthwash: Using fluoride mouthwash can reduce your chances of falling victim to tooth decay and enamel erosion because fluoride is a natural mineral that can strengthen your tooth enamel. This rinse can help you have a strong and healthy smile.

-Antibacterial mouthwash: This mouthwash kills the bacteria in your mouth and helps you prevent plaque buildup and periodontal (gum) disease.

Now, no matter which mouthwash product you choose, it’s best to select one that has the American Dental Association Seal of Approval on the packaging. This label tells you that the product is safe and effective for your smile.
