THE ESSENTIALS OF ANTIMICROBIAL RINSING

In addition, the ADA recognizes the benefits of rinsing with an ADA-Accepted antimicrobial mouthrinse to reduce plaque and gingivitis. RINSE 2x/day for 30 seconds with 20 mL (4 teaspoonfuls).1 Learn more about our germ-killing antiseptic products.

THE ESSENTIALS OF ANTIMICROBIAL RINSING

Although twice-daily brushing and once-daily flossing is stressed by the ADA to remove plaque from the tooth surfaces, the benefits of rinsing cannot be overlooked. That's because the teeth represent only about 25% of the surface area inside the mouth. However, an antimicrobial mouthrinse reaches the whole mouth, killing germs in "reservoirs" where plaque bacteria survive.

The Essentials of Fluoride Rinsing
