To maintain good oral hygiene, it is necessary to brush your teeth several times a day. Dentists recommend brushing your teeth 2 to 3 times a day to keep your mouth healthy. In some cases, brushing several times is not enough and it is then recommended to use a mouthwash. It can be used pure or diluted, occasionally or daily. Depending on the case, there are different types of mouthwash, including the healing mouthwash. We explain everything here.
Here is everything you need to know about healing mouthwash.
What is a healing mouthwash used for?
Healing mouthwash is used for people who often have mouth ulcers or whose gums bleed during brushing. In fact, molecules that promote healing are present in healing mouthwashes. The active ingredient generally used is hyaluronic acid, which has the advantage of accelerating healing by forming an important protective layer. This layer heals wounds that are present on the mucous membranes.
A mouthwash should be kept in the mouth for about 2 minutes without having to swallow it. This solution generally contains alcohol and can therefore degrade the oral flora when used for too long. For this reason, professionals advise not to use it for more than two weeks. If you notice bleeding gums, you should especially consult your dentist.
Gum failure can lead to painful retraction or loosening of the tooth. These tissues that support the teeth must therefore be particularly monitored.

How to make a mouthwash?
Mouthwash complements brushing and helps reduce bacteria trapped in the oral cavity. For a daily use, it is used after brushing the teeth. However, for more effectiveness, it is recommended to rinse the mouth vigorously with 20 milliliters of solution. This is done for about 30 seconds while keeping the mouth closed. The objective is to allow the product to have time to act effectively. The solution should be spit out afterwards and not swallowed.
However, you should not rinse your mouth after a mouthwash either. It is not really necessary to do this, it should be avoided in order to allow the product to act as long as possible. To maximize the effectiveness of your mouthwash, you must follow the rules of use written on the bottle to the letter. Some of these products can be diluted with water or not and the recommended duration may vary.
What are the other types of mouthwash?
Besides the healing mouthwash, there are many other equally useful formulas. To use them, it would be a good idea to ask a specialist who will be able to advise you.
These are the mouthwashes most often found with purifying formulas containing antiseptics. They block the proliferation of bacteria and also fight against bad breath. They intervene in the treatment of small inflammations of the gums or the formation of the dental plaque. These solutions generally contain chlorhexidine or hexetidine which are used in the case of infection and/or inflammation of the gums. Their use must be limited in time so as not to create an imbalance of the oral flora or alter the taste.
Mouthwashes against bad breath, white teeth and tartar
Mouthwashes for daily use are a good complement to tooth brushing. They are comfort products that allow you to freshen your breath properly. However, they are not very effective when it comes to persistent bad breath. This disorder is very often the consequence of an oral problem. It can also be caused by a decrease in saliva production or in other cases by gastric disorders.
These products contain a so-called protective formula to protect tooth enamel against cavities. They are therefore reserved for people with very fragile enamel. It is also used for teenagers with orthodontic appliances. Brushing is quite complicated in this case with residues that can remain and lead to tooth decay.
In addition to your healing mouthwash, you can use dental floss. The Y-Brush dental floss with ecological handle made of biosourced and biodegradable vegetable plastic allows to clean between each tooth and is very easy to use thanks to its handle. It is easily inserted in the interstices and interdental spaces, and does not damage the gums. It allows an effective care as well as a good oral hygiene.
