Mouthwash Factors to Think About

Posted .

If you’re in search of mouthwash for the entire family, there are a couple things to think about so everyone can be satisfied. Our dentist, Dr. Yvonne Schulke, is happy to help you select the right rinse by telling you what you should consider when in the oral hygiene aisle at the store.

The first thing you need to think about is if the mouthwash has alcohol. If it does, it might cause a stinging sensation in the mouth while using it. This might be unpleasant for certain family members, and you might be better off selecting a mouthwash that is alcohol-free. This type of mouthwash can still benefit the smile in many ways.

The second thing you need to think about is the ingredient list. Sometimes there are ingredients that cause gum irritation, especially alcohol. So, if you or a family member has sensitive gums or has just finished a dental treatment, it’s best to stay away from a rinse that contains ingredients that might irritate the oral tissues.
