Benefits of Mouthwash

You may think that brushing and flossing, along with regular dental visits, is the best you can do when it comes to your dental hygiene. But, do you regularly use a mouthwash? Mouthwash has its own benefits when it comes to your oral health. Take a look at some of these benefits and consider adding mouthwash to your daily dental routine.

Less Plaque

You may know that plaque buildup can lead to increased bacteria in your mouth. These bacteria can then lead to periodontal disease (gum disease). Certain types of mouthwash can actually target the plaque in your mouth. Look for a mouthwash that contains CoQ10, Vitamin C, and xylitol which are all known to combat gum disease.

Help Remove Food Particles

When should you use mouthwash? Often the answer is “after you brush” and while that reply is not incorrect, mouthwash can be used before you brush also. When used before brushing, mouthwash can help loosen food particles in your mouth – which will then help your brushing and flossing.

Freshen Breath

Of course, mouthwash can be used to freshen breath. Add this to your daily dental routine to keep your breath minty fresh.

By removing food particles and lessening the chance for plaque buildup in your mouth, you may also find that you are freshening your breath. (Remember: Bad breath is often a sign of gum disease.) Perfect Smile Mouthwash with MicroActive® CoQ10 delivers more CoQ10 than its leading competitor, along with Vitamin C and xylitol. All three of these ingredients are known to fight gum disease, helping to keep your mouth healthy.
