Is Just Brushing Enough?

A new study proves it may not be.  Published in February of 2013, this study has shown using a germ-fighting mouth-rinse in addition to brushing significantly reduces plaque and symptoms of gum disease!

While brushing removes most plaque and build-up from the surface of your teeth, a rinse reaches nearly 100% of the mouths surfaces.  This means that whatever areas were missed during brushing, can be reached and cleansed, helping prevent the growth of plaque and reducing risks or symptoms of gingivitis.

Flossing is also an important part of preventing build-up and gum disease!  Make sure to incorporate that in your daily hygiene regime!

This information was gathered and summarized from an online resource.  To read the article in full, please click HERE.
