Did you know that mouthwash does not have a singular defining feature for your oral health care, and instead they can vastly differ on the services they provide for your smile? Although many claim to freshen breath and destroy bacteria, there are no guidelines regulating mouthwash products, so benefits can vary greatly from product to product.

To ensure you are getting the best product, look for mouthwash brands that feature the ADA Seal of Acceptance given out by the American Dental Association. This recognition is only given to those products which reach the highest levels of safety and effectiveness, which ensures the product will perform as advertised.

Depending on your oral health care needs, look for a mouthwash product to help supplement your oral health in areas you may suffer in. If you have stains or discolorations, teeth whitening mouthwash could be used. If your tooth enamel tends to be a bit weak, or if you have an unhealthy diet, go for an enamel-strengthening product such as a fluoride mouthwash. If you are looking to combat halitosis, look for a mouthwash that promises fresh breath. No matter your needs, there are plenty of mouthwash products available to assist you.
