Win the Battle against Bacteria: Use Your Mouthwash Properly

Aug 17, 2007
After a good night's sleep, when we wake up in the morning, we experience a physical and mental freshness. But does you mouth feel fresh too? No! Most of us wake up in the morning with a foul odor in the mouth. This is so because, when we remain asleep, the secretion of cleansing saliva is reduced considerably. This boosts up the activities of plaques and gingivitis causing bacteria inside the mouth. This accounts for the lack of freshness of the morning breath.

Not only for the morning breath, mouthwashes help you to enjoy a fresh and clean mouth all through the day. These special oral care products are filled with active antiseptic ingredients-sometimes chemical, sometimes natural. Whatever may be the forms, these active ingredients are meant to kill the bacteria and prevent them from further regeneration. The result is: your wife is no longer panicked to give you a loving kiss at any point of the day.

But mouthwashes alone can't solve your oral health problems. You have to use them properly to get the best result. Here are few tips to help you use the mouthwash to your best effect.

Choose the product carefully:

First of all you have to be very clear about your expectation from the mouthwash. What do you want to do it for you-do you want it to help you get rid of irritability of bad breath? Or is it the plaques that you want to remove? Or do you want to fight against the cavities and want to strengthen your dental health?

Remember, most of the mouthwashes that you come to find in the stores are strictly for cosmetic purposes to give you a fresh and tangy feeling in the mouth, but the feeling does not last for long, as these products have nothing to do with the long term oral health.

Long accumulated plaques are one of the major causes of bad breath and to remove the plaque build ups you have to use mouthwash that contains cetylpridinium chloride or domiphen bromide. These ingredients dissolve these bacteria generating build up.

If you want to fight cavities that form between teeth preventing your toothbrush access the area, you should use fluoride containing mouthwash.

How to use a mouthwash
In order to get the best result you have to follow these steps:

After taking your meal, brush first and then rinse your mouth with your mouthwash. This order is important because, brushing will remove the mouthwash ingredients from your teeth, thereby rendering no result.
- Swish or gargle mouthwash for a full minute inside your mouth and then spit it out.
- Don't swallow the product and even it goes inside mistakenly, seek professional help.
- After the rinse, don't eat or brush for a half-hour.
- If you are using fluoride mouthwash, rinse once a day, preferably at bedtime.
- You can use a mild mouthwash more often.
- If you're pregnant or nursing mother, don't use mouthwash containing alcohol.

Follow these tips to achieve a significant reduction in breath odor and a spanking clean mouth al through the day.
