Sometimes, just brushing your child’s teeth twice a day isn’t enough to keep their teeth as healthy as possible. In most cases, your dentist will recommend adding mouthwash and floss to your child’s dental hygiene routine.
But what mouth rinses are best? The American Dental Association makes it easy to choose!
Dentists are careful to recommend only products that are beneficial to dental health. The American Dental Association recommends mouthwashes and mouth rinses as an important part of a healthy dental care routine and awards recommended products with the ADA Seal.
All products with the ADA Seal of Acceptance meet ADA criteria for safety and effectiveness. Some of the ADA-recommended mouth rinses include:
Most dentist-recommended mouthwashes and rinses contain fluoride, which is important in keeping your child’s tooth enamel healthy and strong.
After your children brush their teeth, help them use a dentist-recommended mouthwash or mouth rinse at least once a day. This will help your children target hard-to-reach spots in the mouth and make their teeth brighter and stronger.
With good brushing, flossing, and rinsing habits, your child’s teeth will be more protected from decay and cavities.
You can purchase any of the listed mouthwashes at your local convenience store. If you’re unsure what mouthwash is best for your child, make an appointment with the dentists at Kool Smiles to determine which mouthwash is best.
