MOUTHWASH AND RINSE

      USE OF MOUTHWASHES AND  RINSES TO PREVENT ODOUR 


      Most mouthwashes and rinse usually contain chemical or drugs which are meant for treatment action/therapeutic uses or preventive measures such as mouth odour, prevention of dental caries, refreshing of the mouth, etc. Although most 
commercially available mouthwashes 
contain flavouring agents that make the mouth feel clean. The flushing action may loosen food debris, but it 
will not dislodge or remove dental plaque. Some mouthwashes have bacteriostic or bactericidal effects, but this is only a temporary action. 

       Fortunately, recent research studies have shown that certain mouthwashes may help in chemical control of dental plaque .
Mouth rinse comes either saline solution (warm water salt solution) or oxygenating agents (e. g. hydrogen per oxide solution) are beneficial during acute gum disease because they are active against 
microorganisms and help remove food debris (debridement). 

    It is important to know that mouthwashes and rinses should be used only to complement brushing not to replace it. Examples of mouthwashes and 
rinses are oral B. Mouthwash, Listerine, saline solution, diluted hydrogen per oxide, etc.
