One of the questions Dr Gunnerson, a payson ut dentist,  and his hygienists are asked a lot, is are there really benefits to using mouthwash? According to an article posted by the Academy of General Dentistry, “Research shows that using mouthwash in addition to brushing your teeth can reduce plaque and gingivitis more than brushing alone. Additionally, anti-cavity mouthwashes with fluoride have been clinically proven to fight up to 50% more of the bacteria that cause cavities. However, cosmetic mouthwashes that aren’t formulated to kill germs do not provide these cavity-fighting benefits.”
