If you’re looking for more ways to improve your oral health, then you should probably consider the use of mouthwash in your daily oral health regimen. Mouthwash has many benefits that complement what you already get from regular brushing and flossing, and it has the added benefit of helping your breath stay fresh longer throughout the day.

Let’s look at why our team here at Brent Huckabay D.D.S. in Midland, Texas recommends you use mouthwash.

Good source of fluoride

If you don’t have great enamel, or want to expose your teeth to more fluoride on a regular basis, then a mouthwash with fluoride in it is a great way to get another source of that mineral in your teeth. There are plenty of mouthwashes with fluoride in them, but make sure you only buy ones with the American Dental Association seal of approval.

Rids your mouth of bacteria

Even after brushing and flossing, it’s likely there’s still some malignant bacteria roaming in your mouth. Rinsing with mouthwash for a minute after brushing is a great way to get rid of all that bacteria and ensure your mouth is as healthy as possible.

If you think mouthwash would be a great addition to your oral health routine, call us today at 432-684-6672 to get Dr. Brent Huckabay‘s recommendation on the best mouthwash to use.
