Are you making sure to use all cleaning utensils at your disposal? If for any reason you are not using the proper tools at the proper times, you could be leaving your teeth vulnerable to dental damage. To help minimize oral health risks associated with damage to your teeth and gums, consider using mouthwash.

Mouthwash can be a highly effective cleaning tool to rinse out your mouth and remove any debris and bacteria that may begin to collect. Mouthwash may often be most effective after eating when your teeth are hypersensitive and prone to dental abrasion. Because your brush and toothpaste may be too abrasive, consider using nonabrasive tools such as mouthwash.

Be aware there are two common types of mouthwash including therapeutic mouthwash and cosmetic mouthwash. Whereas cosmetic mouthwash is only used to mask bad breath and help provide cosmetic benefits, you can use a therapeutic mouthwash to eradicate underlying oral health problems such as minimizing risks associated with plaque buildup.
