Is mouthwash necessary?

A vigorous swish of mouthwash leaves our mouths and teeth feeling fresh. Still, many wonder if mouthwash is necessary – or if it can substitute for brushing.

Key takeaways:

– Excessive mouthwash could raise your blood pressure, as it kills bacteria the body needs to generate nitric oxide – which helps control blood pressure.

– Studies suggest that excessive use of mouthwashes containing alcohol can contribute to oral cancers.

– Antiseptic mouthwashes are best for people with periodontal diseases or harmful oral bacteria.

Consult with your dentist on the best mouthwash for you, depending on your dental health.
