Did you know there are two different types of mouthwash available on store shelves? Well, it’s true. This can make shopping for a rinse confusing and a bit overwhelming. So, to help you, Dr. Eric Thiede and our dental team are happy to tell you all about the two different types of mouthwash so you can choose the best product for your smile.

The first valuable mouthwash is therapeutic mouthwash. This rinse is made to complete the smile-cleaning job while improving your oral health. It can reduce plaque buildup, reduce your chances of having periodontal disease, and protect you from cavities. It can also nourish and strengthen your teeth with fluoride and eliminate odorous breath.

The second helpful mouthwash is cosmetic mouthwash. This rinse can enhance the appearance of your smile and give you a fresh breath. Some washes can whiten the teeth over time while others can leave a pleasant taste in your mouth.

Now, when you’re at the store looking for a rinse, it’s best to keep an eye out for one that has been approved by the American Dental Association. This label says the product has been tested and researched for safety and effectiveness. That way you know you’re using a product that is top-notch for your smile.
