Gargle Drug - Brushing teeth is not yet complete it, without ending with gargling with mouthwash. Similarly, the message conveyed in advertisements mouthwash products. But, really very effective mouthwash to get rid of all bacteria?
Year 2010, the U.S. food and drug agency (Food and Drug Administration/FDA) warned on three mouthwash manufacturers to stop promoting that their products have fluoride as an active ingredient which can prevent gum disease and eliminate dental plaque.
Mouthwash really make a fresh breath in some time. The question is a breath of fresh content is generated by the killer bacteria or a strong flavor so as to cover up the smell in the mouth.
In 2008, analysis of numerous studies concludes that the two antibacterial agents are frequently used in mouthwash, ie, cetylpyridinium chloride and chlorhexidine, may reduce levels of bacteria that cause bad breath and other content in mouthwash (zinc, chlorine dioxide) could neutralize the smell of sulfur components trigger mouth.
However, mouthwashes containing chlorhexidine can only be obtained by prescription and the mostly used after oral surgery procedures.
The problem is, this material will cause the brown color of the teeth. Otherwise, it would be more products that use chlorhexidine mouthwash because this material is considered the most effective.
According Dr.Nadeem Karimbux, professor of the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, the bacteria that cause holes in teeth is different from the bacteria that cause gum disease.
Dozens of species of bacteria that cause gum disease will interact with the gum tissue causing inflammation and destroying gum tissue, including bone supporting the teeth. Brushing and flossing are the most appropriate way to get rid of plaque, although the content of antibacterial mouthwash gives a similar effect, although slightly.
