Q1. What is a mouthwash?

A1. This is a coloured and flavoured liquid which is used as part of a dental cleaning routine. It is used to rinse out the mouth after brushing and flossing the teeth and is seen as extra protection against gum disease and tooth decay.

They are also popular for freshening up the breath.

A mouthwash is not a substitute for brushing and flossing the teeth. Use all three to have a healthy set of teeth and gums.
