Mouthwash Facts In Houston

Mouthwash Facts In Houston

In this post from The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, we’re going to discuss mouthwash. Many people use mouthwash to freshen their breath and help prevent tooth decay. While some mouthwash has cavity-fighting additives, it should never be used exclusively. Good dental health is centered on regular brushing and flossing.

It is important to know what kind of mouthwash you’re using. Some merely mask bad breath, while others help reduce the bacteria that causes plaque.

If you cope with bad breath, it is important to use a mouthwash with ingredients that also help prevent tooth decay, such as fluoride. Some of the ingredients can be dangerous, even toxic, if not used properly.

Some of the ingredients to watch out for are chlorhexidine gluconate, ethanol, hydrogen peroxide, and methyl salicylate. If you experience throat pain, vomiting, headache, or abdominal pain after using mouthwash, seek medical help immediately.
