Coconut Oil Mouthwash - Why You Should Use It

Posted on 7/30/2017 by Century Dental LLC
Century Dental recommends using mouthwash after brushing and flossing.
Part of your daily oral hygiene routine should include rinsing your mouth with mouthwash. It helps to rid your mouth of extra bacteria that may get missed during brushing and flossing. Plus, most mouthwashes help to keep your mouth healthier by reducing your risk of tooth decay. What happens if you try another type of mouthwash, like that made with coconut oil? Would you give it a try if you were told it helps to make your mouth healthier than traditional products?

Benefits of a Coconut Oil Mouthwash

Coconut oil is a great addition for the health of your mouth. It has been shown to do everything from reducing inflammation that comes along with gum disease to preventing cavities and heart disease. Simply by taking the time to swish with coconut oil once per day for 10-20 minutes, your mouth gets a lot of benefits. People are finding that this type of mouthwash is actually restoring enamel and correcting tooth decay, removing bad breath, and killing the bacteria that is commonly responsible for gum disease.

The benefits of using a coconut oil mouthwash far outweigh your apprehension to trying something new. If you want to see and feel the benefits for yourself, consider trying it for six months between dental visits. It is only a few minutes of your day, but if you get all of these benefits, what do you have to lose aside from a few minutes of your time? Have your dentist take a good look around your mouth at the end of that six months, and see what they have to say about the current state of health in your mouth. Chances are, you are going to get a glowing report that tells you whatever you have been doing, you should keep doing.
