Mouthwashes found to be safe for dental health
Updated: 11/5/2008 6:00:34 PM
 

Mouthwashes found to be safe for dental health Mouthwashes are a popular way for people to try and boost their dental health or address concerns about bad breath.

And, according to research published in the journal General Dentistry, mouth rinses are also safe to be used by people who have restorative materials in their mouths.

Scientists set out to find out if rinses that contain essential oils, such as eucalyptol, menthol, thymol or alcohol, posed any risk to certain types of dental work. In this study, restorative materials studied included silver amalgams, glass ionomers and composite resins.

As part of the investigation, all of these substances were exposed to mouth rinses and distilled water over the course of 10 days. The researchers did not find any significant negative effects as a result of this exposure.

Commenting on the findings, lead author Dr J. Anthony von Fraunhofer said that "patients are often concerned that rinsing the mouth with alcohol-containing mouthwashes could affect their fillings."

"Fortunately, this was found not to be the case," he added.

The American Dental Association recommends the use of mouthwashes as an extra step that can be taken to help prevent gum disease.
