Oral Health Tip – Mouth Rinse

Mouth rinse is recommended for killing bacteria and freshening your breath. When choosing mouth rinse be sure to read the label! Look for a rinse that is non alcohol based. Alcohol based rinses can actually dry out your mouth. Studies have shown that a dry mouth can lead to decreased saliva and an increase in plaque build up. Something as simple as choosing the right mouth rinse can be very helpful in maintaining your oral health.

We recommend Discus rinse, Closys II and Perioguard.
