Many people assume that as long as they brush and floss their teeth every day, they have no need for mouthwash. The truth is that, while mouthwash can’t replace any of these habits, it can further improve your dental health and leave your breath fresh and your smile clean. We are eager to help you incorporate mouthwash into your oral care routine to improve your dental health.

Your options for mouthwash products are numerous, and choosing the right mouthwash can be hard, especially if you aren’t sure which is best for your smile. At Gilbert Fernandez, D.D.S., Inc., we would be happy to help you choose a product based on the properties your oral health needs. For example, you can find cosmetic mouthwash products that freshen your breath and whiten your teeth, and therapeutic mouthwashes that provide fluoride supplementation. Looking for the Seal of Acceptance from the American Dental Association can help you find safe and effective products that meet the ADA’s high standards and boost your oral health.

Mouthwash can offer the most benefits when used alongside daily brushing and flossing. You should never use mouthwash in place of these practices, as only floss can clean between your teeth and only brushing can scrub your tooth’s surface. The purpose of mouthwash is help to eliminate lingering bacteria and acid and leave your smile feeling fresh.
