3 Unexpected Ways Mouthwash Helps Your Smile
Posted on December 20, 2016 in Dental Health
We're mega-fans of mouthwash. Because when combined with a thorough brushing and flossing routine, mouthwash can fight cavities and bad breath.
But did you know that mouthwash does work beyond cleaning your pearly whites? Here are three other ways mouthwash can benefit your smile:
1. Cleans your toothbrush
Mouthwash's antiseptic kills the bacteria that breeds on your toothbrush, effectively sanitizing it. But remember: Always replace your toothbrush after three months of use!
2. Disinfects cuts and scrapes
Mouthwash was originally developed as a surgical antiseptic before it became a commercial oral health product. Back in the day it could've cleansed a cut instead of kept you minty-fresh!
3. Freshens breath
And last but not least, mouthwash is a sure way to freshen breath if you don't have time to brush. A quick swish can keep you minty fresh on the go.
