Mouth Rinses

Mouth rinses do not fall under the category of “pharmaceuticals”, and therefore manufacturers are not as restricted in what they can claim about their products. For example, one mouth rinse company has made the claim that using their product is as good as flossing. Unfortunately, this is not the case and many people have been misled.

The bottom line is that some mouth rinses can have therapeutic benefits; others are only cosmetic in nature. Some have both attributes.
