Did you know, there are many different types of mouthwash to choose from? Well, it’s true! Mouthwash has many wonderful options and can work well to improve your oral health. Using the right mouthwash can be the key to optimizing your use of mouthwash. That is why our team here at Cosmo Dental Office in Morgan Hill, California, is happy to talk to you about the different mouthwash options available, so you can choose which one is right for you.
For starters, there are many different options to choose from when it comes to mouthwash. The question then becomes, how do you know which one to choose? When it comes to answering this question, you must understand, there are two specific kinds of mouthwash: therapeutic and cosmetic.
Therapeutic mouthwashes are designed with unique ingredients that kill bacteria and reduce plaque, gum disease, cavities, and bad breath problems. Therapeutic mouthwashes contain fluoride, which works to reduce and prevent tooth decay in your teeth. Cosmetic mouthwashes can temporarily reduce bad breath in your mouth. They usually have an excellent flavor or taste but are not capable of fighting off cavities or gum disease.
Now that you know the difference between the two types of mouthwash you can choose from, you can figure out which mouthwash is right for your unique needs. If you continue to experience bad breath, please call 408-779-9393 to make an appointment with our dentists, Dr. Karimian and Dr. Patil. Our friendly and talented dental team is always happy to take your call and help in any way we can.
