Your dentist, Dr. Paul L. Evans, encourages you to include rinsing with mouthwash in your oral hygiene routine. But have you ever wondered why? Well, our dental team will be happy to tell you why! Whether you believe it or not, rinsing can help your smile in a myriad of ways. Those ways are:

-Mouthwash can eliminate your bad breath. This is because when you swish, the rinse kills the bacteria that let off an odor. No matter which flavor you use, your mouthwash can make your breath fresh and pristine.

-Mouthwash can help you prevent plaque buildup. This is because the rinse kills the bacteria in your mouth before it can damage your smile. This is a great benefit because plaque promotes the development of gum disease, which is a serious and dangerous dental issue.

-Mouthwash helps prevent cavities. Mouthwash that contains fluoride strengthens the tooth enamel and prevents or fights things like enamel erosion and cavity-causing bacteria. This can help you have strong teeth.

Now remember: These benefits are only applicable if you use the right kind of mouthwash. So, to find out which rinse is best for you, call the practice of Paul L. Evans, DDS at 530.273.4442 today. We also encourage you to contact us if you have any questions or if you would like to know more. We look forward to helping you!
