The Benefits of Rinsing Your Mouth

Posted .

Do you ever wonder why your dentist, Dr. Stephen Huber, strongly encourages rinsing your mouth with mouthwash? If so, our dental team will be happy to help you! Rinsing with mouthwash should be included in your oral hygiene routine because it can help you in many ways. To help you understand, we would like to list the benefits of using mouthwash, and those benefits are:

-Mouthwash can eliminate your bad breath. This is because when you swish, the rinse kills the bacteria that cause bad breath. No matter which flavor you choose, your mouthwash can make your breath fresh and pristine.

-Mouthwash can prevent plaque buildup. This is a great benefit because plaque can promote major dental issues. One major dental issue it promotes is gum disease. Gum disease can destroy your smile and oral health if you let it.

-Mouthwash can help you avoid cavity development. This is because, if it contains fluoride, it can strengthen your tooth enamel and give it the ability to fight enamel erosion and attacks from bacteria. Like mentioned before, mouthwash can eliminate plaque. Well, plaque can also promote cavity growth. So, if you remove plaque, you can reduce your chances of having cavities.
