Mouthwash. A routine that should be mandatory

We all know that brushing is very important for a healthy mouth. In fact, we brush several times a day, even with electric toothbrushes that do an extraordinary cleaning.

We also use dental floss and interdental brushes, but we do not always incorporate a mouthwash because we think it is not mandatory, although it is.

Complements the action of brushing and flossing

The mouthwashes we manufacture at Foramen complement the action of brushing and flossing. While these focus on the physical removal of plaque and residues left behind by food, rinsing addresses areas that both do not reach.

They have active agents that penetrate interdental spaces and hard-to-reach areas. Thus, they act as an effective back-up for the action of the silk and the brush.

Can you kill bacteria?

In the mouth there are a number of harmful bacteria that are the enemies of the teeth, as they deteriorate the enamel. Here an antibacterial rinse is very useful, as it eliminates them and prevents them from forming plaque.

This is what leads to tooth decay and causes gum disease, so rinsing is essential in daily hygiene.

In fact, with its application we will significantly reduce the risk of gingivitis, a pathology that can leave us without any dental piece if it evolves into periodontitis.

All this is achieved in about thirty seconds, which is how long a mouthwash like the ones we sell at Foramen lasts.

Does it help to have better breath?

Right after rinsing, we enjoy an enormous sensation of freshness, but the benefits go beyond that.

Because it kills bacteria, breath stays fresh in the long term. It should not be forgotten that they are responsible for the bad smell in the mouth, a problem that many people suffer from and that harms their personal relationships.

For example, in situations where we can’t brush our teeth, mouthwash will make bad breath disappear, and all in less than a minute.

If we can’t carry the rinse bottle, Foramen has developed a small mouth spray. It fits in your pocket and all you have to do is put a couple of pulses in your mouth, thus enjoying a very fresh and pleasant breath when you are away from home.

How is it used?

Although it is very simple, there are doubts when it comes to using the rinse. It is best to read the manufacturer’s instructions, but it is always used in the same way.

The dosage is marked on the cap. In it we will see a line and it is necessary to fill up to there, because that closing makes us of glass and dispenser. Then we keep it in the mouth for 30 seconds moving it well in all the corners.

After half a minute, nothing happens if we are careless and we keep it in our mouth a little longer, we spit it into the sink.

One of the most common doubts is if it can be diluted or if it is possible to rinse our mouth afterwards with water. The answer to both questions is no.

When we dilute it, it does not work well and if we rinse our mouth with water, it will lose effectiveness. In case we want to rinse our mouth because we do not like the sensation it leaves us, the best thing to do is to change mouthwash and look for a flavor that we like better.

Is it possible to buy a rinse for a specific problem?

As you can see on our website, there is a huge variety of mouthwashes. In fact, we can already say that there is one for every need.

Anticaries rinses

They are among the most widely used because they help to prevent the dreaded cavities from appearing. They contain fluoride, which strengthens tooth enamel and prevents tooth demineralization.

Rinses for sensitive gums

Ideal for those with sensitive or irritation-prone gums. They usually contain soothing ingredients such as aloe vera or bisabolol, which prevents gums from turning red when brushing or even bleeding a little.

Rinses for tooth sensitivity

They are specifically formulated for those who experience tooth sensitivity. They are manufactured with elements such as potassium nitrate or stannous fluoride, which desensitize the teeth.

They take about a month to take effect, but after that they help people who use them to be able to eat very hot or very cold food without experiencing that unpleasant sensation in their teeth.

Antibacterial rinses

These rinses are designed to fight bacteria in the mouth and prevent plaque formation. They incorporate compounds such as chlorhexidine, which has potent antimicrobial properties.

In addition, they are very useful when a small wound appears in the mouth. In certain cases they can be an excellent substitute for brushing, if we cannot use the brush for a couple of days because the wound bothers us too much.
