It can get to places where you cannot reach with a toothbrush or even with dental floss, the other two members of the holy trinity of at home oral care. Mouthwash is effective at removing stains, killing bacteria and freshening the breath by drenching the soft tissues and removing the bacterial colonies living on the tooth gaps, the tongue and the periodontium. But is every mouthwash created equal? And how often should mouthwash be used for maximum effectiveness? Can you overuse mouthwash? These are some of the questions we seek to answer.
