Do you rinse your mouth with water after mouthwash? If that’s what you’ve been doing, then it’s time to stop.
You need to know that you are not supposed to rinse your mouth with water after using your mouthwash. If that is something that you’re doing, I’d recommend you to stop doing it so that you can get the most out of your mouthwash.
[Wondering about why it’s not a good idea to rinse your mouth with water after using a mouthwash? Keep reading to find out!]
Well, in today’s article, we are going to take a look at the main reason why you don’t want to rinse your mouth with water right after you’ve used a mouthwash.
Do you rinse your mouth with water after mouthwash?
As I just remarked, if you’ve been rinsing your mouth with after after using a mouthwash, it’s probably going to be the best course of action for you to stop doing this.
The main reason is that while the mouthwash does directly kill most of the germs, it keeps protecting your mouth and overall oral hygiene for quite a while even after you have spit it out.
When you actually rinse your mouth with water after using your mouthwash, what happens is the at you dilute the mouthwash that’s still in there. This actually ends up weakening the results you get from it after that point- which is not something you really want.
Dentist Tip: Don’t rinse your mouth with water right after you have finished using your mouthwash. Mouthwash continues to work after you spit it out, so by rinsingwith water you dilute the cleaning and strengthening benefits.
Can you use Listerine in a Waterpik?
Now, if you’re into using waterpiks and like to use a mouthwash as often as I do, you must have wondered at one point or the other if you actually can use listerine in a waterpik or not.
As it so turns out, there’s pretty much no reason for you to not use Listerine in a waterpik in ordinary circumstances.
However, Tooth Advocates has prepared an entire article for you on this and hopes that you’d be able to find the information that you’re looking for in it.
Can Waterpiks Replace Flossing?
A lot of people often wonder if a waterpik can actually replace flossing effectively. Honestly speaking, while their overall actions do resemble each others’ a lot, it really is hard to answer this question.
There are quite a few pros and cons with choosing one of them over the other and sticking to only that one while never doing the other. The main ones among these have already been discussed in an article that we have prepared for you right here at Tooth Advocates!
How many times should you floss everyday?
Once you’ve figured out the answer to is it better to floss in the morning or night, this is the next question that’s bound to come to your mind.
[And of course, we’re going to answer it for you, so there’s no need for you to worry, just keep reading to find out!]
Well, it just so happens that American Dental Association recommends doing it at least once everyday. However, a lot of professionals actually recommend using it twice if you can.
Here at Tooth Advocates, we think that the frequency of doing it is just as important in order to keep your dental health perfect. So, we’ve already prepared an article discussing how many times you should ideally use your waterpik everyday.
Is it okay to brush 3 times a day?
Quite a few people I know actually brush trice a day. Dental professionals do not really recommend brushing more than twice a day, but these people seemed to have actually achieved fairly nice results by doing so.
So, I went ahead and actually did my research and figured out that it probably really is the best to not brush more than twice a day because you don’t want to get your enamel eroded too quickly. While brushing thrice a day might be fine for some people, it really is not something that’s recommended in general by dentists, and we should probably leave it to the professionals.
