Teeth rinsing advice falling on dental patients' deaf ears
Updated: 6/17/2010 7:00:49 PM

Teeth rinsing advice falling on dental patients Despite receiving preventative advice from their dentists and oral healthcare experts, people who receive oral hygiene treatments on a regular basis have a tendency to rarely follow oral hygiene suggestions.

For example, dentists have been encouraging patients to avoid rinsing their mouths with water after brushing their teeth. This is because the water may wash away fluoride treatments found in many types of toothpastes, according to a report published in Delivering Better Oral Health.

In fact, recent studies have found that approximately 51.3 percent of all adults rinse their mouth with water after brushing their teeth.

Dentists are recommending that instead of rinsing with water, people should use a mouthwash that contains fluoride instead. Switching to a mouthwash will not only prevent the fluoride treatment from rinsing away, it will help maintain the treatment longer and further prevent cavity development.
