British dentists have criticized mouth rinse. These product is not only useless, but even able to harm teeth and gum health.
According to Professor Damien Walmsley, the British Dental Association’s Scientific Adviser, mouth rinse can slightly lower levels of plaque but it can never be compared with a toothbrush in its effectiveness. In turn, the dentist Phil Stemmer from the Fresh Breath Centre in London, said that people who properly brush their teeth, use dental floss, visit the dentist regularly and do not have gum disease, do not need a mouth rinse.
However, chemical substances in a toothpaste and a mouth rinse can neutralize each other. If you use such a product, do so at least 30 minutes after brushing your teeth, as dentists recommend.
