Proper use of mouthwash

From the moment you decided to include the use of mouthwash in your daily routine, I advise you to get some information about the proper and intended use, so that you do not waste even these thirty seconds on its use!

From the moment you decided to include the use of mouthwash in your daily routine, I advise you to get some information about the proper and intended use, so that you do not waste even these thirty seconds on its use!

The amount of mouthwash you should use is indicated in almost all products placed on the market, it is 20ml.

But be careful, use a clean glass every time to avoid contact with the container of the product, so bacteria from a previous illness that may have remained in the container can not re-enter your oral cavity causing reinfection.

Rinsing with mouthwash twice a day is ideal and the appropriate time is thirty seconds.

Most companies recommend not to drink water immediately after using mouthwash, while others have included in their product a kind of “paint” in order to stain the bacteria and reveal areas where brushing is not done correctly. In these cases rinsing with water afterwards is mandatory. Some others, however, recommend the use of mouthwash to be at least an hour after brushing when the toothpaste used contained sodium lauryl .

Because, anions contained in such toothpastes are undermined by the action of the cations contained in the mouthwash. Many, of course,do not support the theory, because modern and popular mouthwashes contain sodium lauryl (Listerine Total Care).

I advise you to read the inscriptions on each product you choose to use. Each company contains different content of components and it may be indicated to dilute the product before use.

It is essential to remember that mouthwash can not in any case replace brushing or flossing. Even if your dentist adviced you to use it, you should continue to follow the whole routine of your oral care. It is the only way to maintain your healthy smile!
