Mouthwashes Create a More Kissable You
Sunday, January 1st 2006
While you sleep, less of your cleansing saliva flows, so bacteria in your mouth - the ones that form plaque and cause gingivitis (gum disease) - start working overtime. That's why you wake up with that yucky - smelling morning breath. Mouthwashes contain active ingredients that kill bacteria and prevent them from attaching to your teeth. The result: a more kissable you.
Most mouthwashes and rinses are for use after brushing. Why? Brushing removes the mouthwash from your teeth and thus reduces its effectiveness. Other tips:
· Swish or gargle with a mouthwash for about 30 seconds, then spit it out (don't swallow)
· Don't eat or brush for a half-hour after using a mouthwash.
