Walk down the dental aisle of any pharmacy and quickly you will be overwhelmed with choice. You’ll find mouthwashes for whiter teeth and a brighter smile to healthier gums and fresher breath – fads ebb and flow in the dental industry. Our advice: Shut out the advertising noise and buy the best mouthwash for your specific oral health care needs. In other words…
Choose the Best Mouthwash for You
While there’s no substitute for proper brushing and flossing, a mouthwash can be a complimentary product to achieve better oral health.
Review.com recently released the best mouthwashes on the market today. But best for what? The answer is simple: best for your individual dental needs. The top 5 mouthwashes on the market were determined to be:
Overall Best Mouthwash
The best dual action mouthwash tested by Review.com is Colgate Total Daily Repair. It freshens your breath and the fluoride in the formula strengthens teeth and counteracts tooth decay.
Best Mouthwash for Fighting Plaque
Are visits to your dentist involving the hygienist taking an extended amount of time to remove tartar from your teeth? Some patients are prone to plaque build-up; try ACT Advanced Care with cetylpyridinium. The ingredient controls bacterial growth, helping to reduce plaque-build up and general bad breath.
Best Mouthwash for Whitening Teeth
On a mission for a whiter, brighter smile? Remove surface stains from your teeth with Crest 3D White Diamond Strong. The formula contains fluoride that helps to strengthen and whiten teeth.
Best Natural Mouthwash
Choose a mouthwash that fits your lifestyle. Nature’s Answer PerioWash uses plant-based essential oils to quell bacteria growth. Even though it’s more expensive than pharmaceutical brands, the herbal, mild peppermint taste is a hit.
Best Mouthwash for Dry Mouth
Biotène Dry Mouth Oral Rinse moistens the mouth, relieving people with dry mouth symptoms. Patients with dry mouth often have additional problems with cavities. Fluoride in this mouthwash acts as a cavity inhibitor.
