Your Lincoln Dentist Discusses the Benefits of Mouthwash

November 26, 2016

Filed under: Uncategorized — tntadmin @ 9:17 pm

Your Lincoln dentist discusses the benefits of mouthwash.Because we know more about the connection between oral health and overall health and well being, we understand that there’s never been a more important time to take charge of your oral health. While regular visits to your dentist are very important, your trusted team at Williamsburg Dental wants you to know that optimum oral health also begins at home. There are a number of things you can do to ensure that you maintain good oral health, and adding mouthwash to your home care routine is one of them. Your Lincoln dentists discuss the benefits of using mouthwash, and other things you can do to improve your home care.

Adding Mouthwash to Your Home Care Routine

One of the easiest and quickest ways to amp up your home care routine is to start using mouthwash. Believe it or not, it benefits more than just your breath! Mouthwash can help wash away excess food debris and particles, and it also covers many hard to reach places in your mouth. Using the right one can give you added protection against the bacteria and acids that cause cavities.

Be sure to discuss which rinse will best benefit your needs with your dentist, as unfortunately, they’re not all created equal. Choosing mouthwashes with fluoride or that are antibacterial, are going to be the best choices, however one of our doctors can make a recommendation based on your needs.

Switch to an Electric Toothbrush

Another investment you can make in your oral health is to switch to an electric toothbrush. Did you know that how you brush your teeth is just as important as how often you brush? Using proper brushing techniques can more effectively remove plaque buildup, and an electric brush does all the hard work for you. It even has a timer to ensure that you’re brushing for the recommended two minutes. While an electric brush does cost more, it’s a small investment to make in your oral health.

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

We’ve been told to eat fruits and veggies for our overall health, but did you know that also benefits your oral health? Eating fruits and veggies actually neutralizes the acids in your mouth that cause damage to your teeth. They also increase saliva flow, which washes away bacteria and food debris.

At Williamsburg Dental, we’re here to help you achieve and maintain optimum oral health for a lifetime. We hope these tips for improving your homecare have been helpful. We also encourage you to schedule your next dental appointment, so we can also help monitor your oral health.
