Should My Child Use Mouthwash?

teeth, health, smile, dentist,dentalhealth, oralhealthChildren over the age of six can use mouthwash if an adult supervises them.

Top tips:

– Explain that mouthwash is not a drink and must be spat out.

– Mouthwash helps loosen food debris, so is great for children with braces.

– A dentist can recommend a children’s mouthwash which is not alcohol based.

Mouthwash isn’t a substitute for brushing teeth but it can help prevent plaque and cavities.

“Your dentist can make recommendations for when to begin using mouthwash and may recommend a specific kind that your child may benefit from based on their unique smile.”
