What is mouthwash used for? Mouthwash is a type of dental cleaner that carries a wide variety of oral health benefits. Depending on your smile’s needs, choose a mouthwash that can safely and effectively help make your smile shine and give you the oral health care you wish to have. Be careful about which products to use, as some are not as advantageous as they may claim.

If you are unsure about which mouthwash product you should use, strive for the one that seeks to improve your smile by freshening your breath and meeting all your individualized oral health care needs. Not all mouthwash products are created equally, so speak with your dentist before trying any, or look for products that feature the ADA Seal of Acceptance, which is only given out to products that display an extreme dedication to safety and effectiveness.

Mouthwash products come in a wide array of uses and abilities. While most mouthwash products focus on freshening your breath, some can take it a step further and help prevent bad breath from occurring. Other products also contain fluoride for keeping your tooth enamel strong, and other contain whitening products designed to brighten your smile.
