To keep your smile safe and lower your risk for various oral health problems that can arise, you need to make sure that you are practicing an oral hygiene daily routine that includes brushing twice daily and flossing once daily as well. Beyond brushing and flossing, you may need to add in supplemental cleaning tools to make sure that your teeth are constantly protected against various risks such as cavities and gum disease. One highly effective product you can consider is mouthwash.
Mouthwash comes in two main varieties, cosmetic mouthwash and therapeutic mouthwash. Cosmetic mouthwash is merely designed to provide treatment for temporarily reducing issues associated with bad breath, whereas you would use a professional therapeutic mouthwash to eliminate the bacteria causing the foul odors. Through the use of therapeutic mouthwash, you can also reduce the speed of tartar, plaque buildup and target issues associated with gingivitis, cavities and stains and discolorations. If you’re unsure of what products to use, look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance or speak with our dentist about product recommendations.
The dental office of Louis Migliazzo, DDS is located in Tucson, Arizona. For more information about therapeutic mouthwash, or to schedule a comprehensive oral examination with Dr. Louis Migliazzo and our team, give us a call at 520-323-7550.
