Mouthwash doesn’t receive a lot of press frankly. Apart from the mouthwash companies themselves buzzing about their product and advertising their various benefits and fresh-breath relief, it isn’t something often discussed at your dental appointments.


However, mouthwash falls into the same category as toothpaste. They are aids in creating a more optimally clean mouth. From antimicrobial mouthwashes, to mouthwash that can aid in the enamel concerns your dental professional may have pointed out, the varieties and areas they address are as vast as their flavours.


Mouthwash, in it’s simplest form, helps to kill bacteria. Apart from that, mouthwash can offer additional protection to your mouth, teeth and gums.


After brushing and flossing thoroughly, mouthwash can swish through the small cracks and spaces between your teeth and gums, further removing food particles, and providing fluoride to the areas your toothbrush can not get to.


In addition to strengthening tooth enamel, offering fresher breath, and further helping to prevent cavities, mouthwashes also offer benefits such as stain removal.


Listerine is one of the mouthwash giants, and has a wide variety of types of mouthwashes to address a variety of issues and concerns.


Their Listerine Whitening and Restoring Mouthwash is noted as offering:

“…the dual benefit of whiter and healthier teeth in one rinse. LISTERINE® WHITENING® RESTORING Fluoride Whitening Rinse provides noticeable whitening plus the added health benefit of enamel restoration for stronger teeth.”
