Mouthwash Facts In Derry

Mouthwash Facts In Derry

In this post from Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH, we’re going to discuss mouthwash. Many people use mouthwash to freshen their breath and help prevent tooth decay. While some mouthwash has cavity-fighting additives, it should never be used exclusively. Good dental health is centered on regular brushing and flossing.

It is important to know what kind of mouthwash you’re using. Some merely mask bad breath, while others help reduce the bacteria that causes plaque.

If you suffer from bad breath, it is important to use a mouthwash with ingredients that also help prevent tooth decay, such as fluoride. But many of the ingredients can be dangerous, even toxic, if not used properly.

Some of the ingredients to watch out for are chlorhexidine gluconate, ethanol, hydrogen peroxide, and methyl salicylate. If you experience throat pain, vomiting, headache, or abdominal pain after using mouthwash, seek medical help immediately.
