Mouthwash Facts for Bad Breath in Burnet

bad breath in burnet

Thanks for visiting our Ritchie Dental Group blog. In today’s post, we would like to discuss mouthwash. Many local residents use mouthwash to prevent tooth decay and bad breath in Burnet. Mouthwash should never be used exclusively though, good oral hygiene starts with thorough tooth brushing and flossing. Mouthwash is an optional tool in your dental hygiene toolbox.

Knowing Your Mouthwash

It is important for Texas residents to know what kind of mouthwash they are using. Some mouthwashes merely mask bad breath while others help reduce the bacteria that cause plaque and bad breath.

If you are one of the local residents that suffers from bad breath in Burnet, it is important to choose a mouthwash that contains ingredients that help prevent tooth decay, such as fluoride. Texas men and women also need to use caution when using mouthwashes because many of the ingredients are dangerous when the recommended amount of mouthwash is exceeded.

Some of the poisonous components are chlorhexidine gluconate, ethanol, hydrogen peroxide, and methyl salicylate. If you experience throat pain, vomiting, headache, or abdominal pain after using mouthwash, seek medical help immediately. The National Poison Control Center (1-800-222-1222) can answer questions about mouthwash ingredients.

At Ritchie Dental Group we want everyone to have great smelling breath, but to use caution when treating bad breath in Burnet. Make sure to read your mouthwash label and follow all instructions given.
