Why Dentoral Mint Mouthwash?
Natural mint oil mouthwash is refreshing and soothing way to clean your mouth. It is very gentle and is well tolerated by children and adults alike.

Why do you need a mouthwash?
Mouth harbors millions of bacteria on the tongue, cheek and teeth. These bacteria multiply by using nutrients in food particles, cell debris and secretions in mouth. Large bacterial population can result in bad breath, gingivitis, plaque, cavities and gum disease. A clean mouth has fewer nutrients for bacterial growth. Mouthwash in combination with brushing, flossing and cleaning of tongue can help to clean the mouth.

Is brushing not enough to clean the mouth?
Brushing does mechanical cleaning of teeth. Brushing does not reach every point in the mouth where most of the bacteria are attached. Mouthwash can reach practically every surface area in the oral cavity.

How does mouthwash clean the oral cavity?
A good mouthwash product has at least dual action. A detergent component helps dislodge food particles and cell debris by mechanical force of gargling or swishing. It dilutes and washes away oral secretions. The microbicidal property helps to reduce bacterial population.

Can mouthwash eliminate all the bacteria in the mouth?
Mouthwash does not eliminate all the bacterial population in mouth. A good mouthwash reduces bacterial population to a very low level to maintain better oral hygiene.

How to select a good mouthwash?
A good mouthwash should be safe and effective. It should not contain any toxic ingredient. At the same time it should have a high microbicidal activity. It should rapidly kill a broad range of bacteria within the short duration of use. It should have pleasant taste and flavor. Even children should be able to use mouthwash, as they are most vulnerable to tooth decay.

How often should I use mouthwash?
Ideally after every major meal one should use mouthwash. However, this is not always possible. One must use mouthwash at least before and after brushing both in the morning and at bedtime.
