Why Does My Dentist Want Me to Rinse My Mouth?

Posted .

Rinsing your mouth with antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash can be very beneficial. In fact, it can help your teeth, gums and smile in many ways, which is why our doctor, Dr. James Voorhees, encourages you to rinse your mouth daily. To help you know why rinsing is recommended, our doctor is happy to list the reasons to rinse your mouth here:

-Rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash can help you prevent gingivitis (Because it kills bacteria in the mouth that create plaque)

-Rinsing with fluoride mouthwash can help you prevent cavities (Because it strengthens the tooth enamel)

-Rinsing can help you have a fresh breath (Because it eliminates the bacteria that cause bad breath)

-Rinsing can help you completely clean your teeth and gums (Because it rinses the substances away that the toothbrush and floss couldn’t completely eliminate)

-Rinsing can help you save money (Because it helps prevent dental problems that can be costly to treat in the future)

-Rinsing can help you have a better overall health (Because when you care for the mouth, you care for the body. The mouth and body are connected)

-Rinsing with cosmetic mouthwash can help you have a more good-looking smile (Because some cosmetic mouthwashes aim to whiten the smile)
