3 Steps to Choosing the Best Mouthwash for You

3 Steps to Choosing the Best Mouthwash for You

Too much of a good thing is bad and that includes too many options. When there are 50 things in front of you, your head is going to spin, and you’ll end up making no decision at all. Trust me, I’ve been there before. Here are 3 short and easy steps to make choosing the best mouthwash a quick and painless decision.

1. Ingredients. You want a mouthwash that is fluoride-free and alcohol-free. Alcohol-based mouthwashes cause a burning sensation in your mouth that can be so uncomfortable it is nearly impossible to keep it in your mouth for the prescribed time. In addition, alcohol is a drying agent that can damage your saliva production. Mouthwash is supposed to help not hurt your oral health. Find those trigger words and steer clear.

2. Acidic Level. This one is hard to test in the store, but it’s important to know that your mouthwash should be higher than the neutral level of 7. Fighting oral acid with an acidic mouthwash simply makes no sense. Aim for higher than neutral. Check out this graphic for help or order free acidic strips so you can test the mouthwash you currently have at home!

3. Taste. If you don’t like the taste of it, there is no way you’ll want to use it every day. Simple as that. When looking for flavors find something that appeals to your personal preferences but also uses natural flavors. After carefully looking over ingredients you don’t want to blow it all for good taste. Find something that checks off both boxes.

Now that you have your list of requirements check out the oral hygiene aisle at your store and find one that fits it all! Good luck and may the best mouthwash win!

Brushing Your Teeth Isn’t Enough

Brushing Your Teeth Isn’t Enough

Everyone knows the golden rule of oral hygiene: brush your teeth. It’s been drilled into our heads since the very beginning. From chew with your mouth closed and share with others, brush your teeth is simply a fact of life. And whether it’s done with a fancy electronic toothbrush or the one your dentist gives you after every visit, no one doubts the power of a good cleaning multiple times a day. And for most of us, our efforts towards our oral hygiene stop right there. After the occasional flossing of course. Isn’t that enough? Unfortunately, it’s not.

Despite your best efforts, simply brushing your teeth only goes so far. Even after your diligently standard 2-minute brushing, bacteria that causes tooth decay lingers between the teeth untouched because the toothbrush bristles can’t reach it. Why do you still get cavities even though you brush your teeth? And why does your dentist keep telling you there is always room for improvement (hello more flossing)?

I propose an addendum to the golden rule that doesn’t require excessive flossing. Enter mouthwash. The best sidekick to daily healthy brushing. Mouthwash removes plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line. Because of its liquid form mouthwash can reach all the places that your toothbrush will never be able to reach. In addition, it can reach all the areas you would never even think about brushing. When was the last time you brushed the roof of your mouth or your inner cheeks? Probably never. Mouthwash removes bad bacteria from every part of your mouth after you’ve done your best brushing. Just call it the closer of oral health. Find your closer and start shopping for mouth rinse today. And maybe, just maybe, your dentist will be speechless the next time you visit.

Foods That Can Cause Dry Mouths

Foods That Can Cause Dry Mouths

Sometimes it feels like the health problems we face our out of our control. Sometimes that is true, but in regards to dry mouth you have more say in the matter than you might realize. If you aren’t living under a rock you should know that everything in regards to your health always comes back to the food that you eat. Food has a huge influence in our mental and physical health and it is the same for dry mouth. In fact, the food you eat can play an role in the severity of your condition. It can become better or worse just based on your diet. With that in mind, here are foods you should avoid because they aggravate the symptoms of dry mouth and can make your condition worse.

When it comes to dry mouth the answer is clear and simple: keep your mouth moist. That’s right, keep the saliva coming though drinking lots of water, sucking on sugar free candies and basically anything to keep those salivary glands working. However, having an endless amount of sugar free candy on hand might seem tedious. So here are some great guidelines for a diet that helps to eliminate dry mouth or at least mitigate the symptoms.

 

Avoid foods that are dry and salty because they dry out your mouth quickly and make you work twice as hard to return to a balance afterwards. For example, eliminate bread, dry meat, pastries, toast and crackers, etc. Thinking of giving up any of those things long term might seem impossible. But don’t throw in the towel just yet. Instead look for alternatives by eating a soft, high protein moist diet and to compensate for those missed foods, learn to be creative. For example, eating bread after it has been dipped in sauce adds a moistening agent that makes the bread less dry and easier on your mouth. There is always a way to make things work.

Avoid citric foods and juices because high acidic levels can be difficult for your mouth to handle. It’s important to keep a balanced oral environment. Instead eat yogurt and fresh fruit. Again be creative. Fresh fruit doesn’t mean an apple every single day for the rest of your life. That seems daunting and a little dramatic. So instead, what about a fruit slushie, smoothie or even a fruit shake. Already there are three different possibilities that can be widely interpreted. That seems doable.

How to Treat Sensitive Teeth in under $20

How to Treat Sensitive Teeth in under $20

There is nothing people love more than a cheap fix. I mean is there anything better? Unfortunately majority of the time cheap fixes are terribly ineffective and just a waste of time. But not today. Sometimes inexpensive and effective is a match made in heaven AND just as successful as dropping some time and money at the doctors or dentists office. Cheap fixes can be just the gift you need when dealing with sensitive teeth. So Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday because we’ve got a gift for you.

Salt Water Rinse

Oftentimes this is seen as a treatment for a sore throat but it can also help with sensitive teeth. All you need is some salt and a glass of water and you are set to go. Salt is effective in this treatment because it is an antiseptic and can reduce inflammation. Just add salt to some luke warm water, gargle the solution in your mouth for 30 seconds and then spit it out. Doing this twice a day will help with sensitive teeth.

 

Honey and Water

Another water mixture that is worth trying is honey and water. Honey works magic because it is an antibacterial agent. Rinsing your mouth with warm water and a good dose of honey will help begin to heal your mouth and reduce the pain that comes along with sensitive teeth.

Green Tea

Green tea has many health benefits so we weren’t surprised to see that it made the quick fix sensitive teeth list. Using unsweetened green tea as a mouthwash two times a day can help strengthen your teeth and reduce inflammation. I’ll drink to that.

Vanilla extract

I was a little surprised by this one but vanilla extract is known to have antiseptic and pain-relieving properties. This one is not mixed with water like the suggestions above but is applied with a cotton ball or q-tip. Once the vanilla extract has been applied to a cotton ball rub it against your gums for a few minutes.

8 Foods You Didn’t Know Cause Bad Breath

8 Foods You Didn’t Know Cause Bad Breath

Foods You Didn’t Know Cause Bad Breath – Sometimes it feels like people struggle to agree on absolutely anything but there is one thing no one can deny. Nobody likes bad breath. Here are the eight unsuspecting foods to avoid when you’re looking to impress someone at the work Christmas party or out with friends.

Milk and Cheese

Although milk and cheese are healthy food items that build strong bones and provide good calcium and protein for the body, they are not your friend when it comes to having fresh smelling breath. This is because bacteria breaks down the amino acids found in dairy and releases smelly compounds when you exhale.

Coffee and Alcohol

Coffee causes bad breath because it makes your mouth dry. When your mouth isn’t producing saliva it tends to give off more of a smell. Likewise, alcohol makes your mouth dry which allows for bacteria to exist without being washed away by saliva.

Tuna and Fish

It may not come as a surprise for most people that tuna and fish made the list but do you understand why tuna and fish make your breath smell? How the fish or tuna is stored actually intensifies the foul smell that we are all too familiar with. When fish, especially tuna is stored in dark metallic cans it speeds up oxidation making the smell even worse.

Onions and Garlic

No surprise there. Both contains sulfuric compounds which get absorbed into your bloodstream and return to make your breath smell bad. In fact, garlic can actually emit that smell from your pores.

Now don’t sweat it just yet. You don’t have to stop eating all of your favorite things. Just remember that if you’re stuck without a toothbrush handy, try drinking some water or chewing some sugar free gum to help alleviate bad breath.
