choosing a mouthwash that’s right for you

If you’d like to add a mouthwash to your oral care routine, it’s important to be aware of just what a mouthwash does. Some freshen breath, others provide an anti-cavity benefit from fluoride, while others contain germ-killing ingredients to help prevent plaque buildup. 

You have many options, and the right mouthwash for you is the one that meets your dental hygiene needs for the health of your teeth and gums, and taste preference.

happy eating

It may seem far-fetched to suggest that food can affect our mood, but your brain is an organ like any other and requires specific nutrients to work effectively.

While our mood is governed by external influences and their effects on our feelings and emotions, it can all be traced back to chemical reactions in the brain which require certain nutrients and hormone balances to occur in the body.

How sugar affects your teeth

Sugar plays a role in the formation of cavities. Tooth decay is caused by acids produced by bacteria found in the mouth. A little of the sugar in the food we eat gets left in the mouth even after we swallow and these traces of sugar are what bacteria live on.

Check nutrition facts labels for sugar. Sugar is present in many healthful foods, not just junk foods and sweets. Dried fruits have a lot of concentrated sugar, and can stick to the teeth. Juice has as much, if not more, sugar than soda.
