There are many choices to choose from when it comes to mouthwash. The question then becomes, how do you know which mouthwash is right for you? The good news is you are in luck, because our dental team is happy to explain the differences to you, so you know which option is right for you and your family.

Our dentist, Dr. Donald Bohne, encourages you to take good care of your teeth and gums, which includes using mouthwash as part of your oral hygiene routine. That is why our team in Tucker, Georgia, is happy to share some mouthwash choices for your smile with you.

Here are some mouthwash choices you can pick from for your family:

Therapeutic mouthwash:
Therapeutic mouthwashes are wildly productive and helpful when it comes to reducing gingivitis, cavities, plaque, and clearing away bad breath problems. Fluoride is an active ingredient that helps encourage healthy tooth enamel and protect your teeth from harm.

Cosmetic mouthwash:
Cosmetic mouthwashes have many yummy flavors that are popular, especially among children that help reduce bad breath. These mouthwashes are fun because they do not feel as strong or overpowering as therapeutic mouthwashes can at times, however, cosmetic mouthwashes do not contain the ingredients you need to fight off cavities and gum disease.

Mouthwash is an important step each day to keep your smile fresh and teeth healthy. If you have questions about the health of your smile, or if you would like to schedule a dental cleaning for you or a member of your family, please call the dental practice of Donald H Bohne DDS PA today at 770-939-6600 to make an appointment.
