If you want the best oral health possible, you should be willing to use all of the different tools at your disposal. From brushing and flossing to regular checkups, there’s a lot you can do to make a big difference in the quality of your oral health.

One of the best ways to accomplish this goal is to add mouthwash to your oral health routine. But why would you need that? Shouldn’t toothpaste and flossing be enough? Well, there are quite a few reasons why you’d want to use mouthwash. Let’s look at a few of them.

Cleans the rest
When you brush or floss your teeth, like every dentist recommends you do, you’re cleaning the vast majority of your teeth. But even then, parts of each tooth will still have plaque, bacteria, or other germs that are harmful for your overall oral health. Mouthwash gets in every crevice and crack in your smile, ensuring that you’re cleaning as much as you possibly can.

Freshens breath
Another great reason to use mouthwash is how great of a tool it is to use when freshening your breath. If you’ve ever asked Dr. Tracy Jenkins for advice on how to deal with bad breath, he has likely recommended some kind of mouthwash regimen.
