Are you in search for a mouthwash for the entire family? If so, it might be tough to find the rinse that helps every smile and caters to every need. If this is the case for you, our dentist, Dr. Lien Ngo, would like to help you. No matter which mouthwash to choose, it’s best to select one that has been approved by the American Dental Association. That way you know it’s safe and effective for your smile. The next tips we have are to:

-Look for alcohol in the mouthwash: Alcohol mouthwash tends to cause a stinging or burning sensation when it’s used. You or your family members might not approve of this feeling. So, to keep everyone happy, just select a rinse that doesn’t contain alcohol. Some rinses even state on the front label that they are alcohol free.

-Look at the ingredient list: This is important if anyone in your family has allergies, weak teeth, or the potential for developing gum disease. It’s best to avoid the ingredients they are allergic to. If they have weak teeth, look for fluoride mouthwash. If they are vulnerable to gum disease, look for antibacterial mouthwash.
