Did you know a complete oral hygiene routine also includes rinsing your mouth with mouthwash? Well, it’s true, and some people forget that. If you’re one of these people, our Kingsport Dentistry dental team is happy to tell you all about the two different types of mouthwash so you can choose the best product for your smile.

The first helpful mouthwash is therapeutic mouthwash. This rinse can improve your oral health because it can reduce the growth of plaque on your teeth, reduce your chances of suffering periodontal disease, and fight cavities. This rinse can also finish the smile-cleaning job and nourish your teeth with fluoride.

The second beneficial type of mouthwash is cosmetic mouthwash. This rinse can help you achieve a more beautiful and attractive smile. Some rinses can brighten your chompers and give you the appearance you are looking for while some can reduce bad breath and leave a pleasant taste in your mouth.

Now, remember, when you’re at the store choosing a rinse, make sure you pick one that has been approved by the American Dental Association. This Seal of Approval means the rinse is safe for your smile and effective at cleaning, strengthening and improving your teeth.
