Mouthwash is a great tool in any oral-health enthusiast’s chest of tools. It can help you keep your oral cavity pristine and your breath fresh, and it’s really not that complex to use.

Mouthwash’s advantage is its removal of plaque and debris from your oral cavity. The liquid materials composing mouthwash contain antibacterial chemicals that wash out your oral cavity, and the swishing action you do while rinsing with mouthwash pushes out unwanted leftover food debris from the spaces between your teeth, where bacterial acids like to make cavities.

To use mouthwash, pour the instructed amount (as seen on the container) and swish it in your oral cavity for about half of a minute. Once you’ve swished it around, spit it out into the sink and don’t eat anything for thirty minutes. And while the main purpose of mouthwash is to toughen and defend your pearly whites and gums, your friends and family won’t mind the delightfully fresh breath you’ll have as a result of use!

We’d love to teach you more about what mouthwash can do, including all about how it helps to prevent gum disease.
