Our Top Picks for Mouthwash
While many people simply like the feeling mouthwash provides, for others, it’s an essential component of their oral health routine. Mouthwash can more easily reach areas of your mouth that can be tough to get with a brush or floss, and swishing it around in your mouth can be just, well, fun!
According to the American Dental Association®(ADA), mouthwash can be categorized as either for cosmetic use (controlling bad breath) or for therapeutic purposes, such as for fighting off gingivitis and tooth decay.
When evaluating the different products on the market, consider your dental health needs to find the mouthwash that’s right for you. If you’re looking to reduce plaque, gingivitis, cavities, and more, be sure to check the active ingredients list. Many will include fluoride to help prevent tooth decay and essential oils to help mitigate plaque and gingivitis.
