Mouthwash Research

Antiseptic mouthwashes is active against various bacteria, viruses, bacterial spores and fungi. It kills the microorganisms associated with various mouth and throat infections, and other common conditions in the mouth. This includes the Candida albicans fungi that cause thrush infection in the mouth, and bacteria that may infect mouth ulcers or other sore areas in the mouth, for example following dental surgery. Infection of these areas increases discomfort and delays healing.
antiseptic mouthwashes: These are mouthwashes that claim to do more than simply mask bad breath. They actively fight plaque and protect your teeth against decay. Most dentists will agree that these kinds of mouthwashes work to varying degrees – some research has shown that mouthwash can reduce plaque by up to 25%. However, this kind of mouthwash should never be used as a substitute for proper brushing and flossing of your teeth.

Antiseptic is used for:
Aid for preventing build-up of plaque on the teeth and maintaining oral hygiene.
Prevention and treatment of gum disease.
Promoting gum healing after dental surgery.
Management of mouth ulcers.
Management of oral thrush.
Management of inflammation of the lining of the mouth due to irritation from dentures.

Cosmetic mouthwashes: they are designed purely to combat bad breath. They may freshen your mouth, mask stale odours and make your teeth feel clean, but they rarely have the power to combat bacteria or plaque. Therefore, they do not protect your teeth against decay.
