Which Mouthwash to Choose for Your Kid?


Brushing your kid’s teeth twice daily is a great start, but it may not be enough to keep their teeth the healthiest. Your dentist is a valuable resource who can recommend an effective mouthwash that will help, along with brushing and flossing, keep your child healthy.


Wondering which ones are the best? The American Dental Association (or ADA) can help!


The ADA is careful to only recommend mouthwashes that meet specific criteria, which ensures the best in dental health. Look for the ADA seal on such products as:


  • ACT Anti-cavity Fluoride Rinse
  • ACT Kids Anti-cavity Fluoride Rinse
  • CloSYS Fluoride Rinse
  • Hello Kids Fluoride Rinse
  • Colgate Ortho-Defense Mouth Rinse
  • Crest Pro-Health Rinse
  • Firely Anti-cavity Mouth Rinse
  • Listerine Antiseptic
  • Tom’s of Maine Children’s Rinse
  • Swan Anti-cavity Mouth Rinse

Fluoride keeps your child’s tooth enamel strong and healthy, which is important for overall dental health. Use any one of these listed above one to two times a day, as they will help target hard to reach areas that can be easily missed even with careful brushing.

Where Can I Get ADA Recommended Mouthwash?

All of those listed above can be found at all major grocery and drug stores. If you need help picking the one that’s best for your family, our offices are here to help! Call or go online for an appointment today!
