To prevent various oral diseases from occurring, it is necessary to take good oral care and maintain oral health in daily life. Brushing teeth is a common way of oral care. However, research has shown that toothbrushes can only clean 25% of the oral area, and 75% of blind spots such as gaps and backs of teeth require deep cleaning with mouthwash, floss, etc. The biggest function of mouthwash is to solve the two major problems of inadequate brushing and cleaning, as well as bacterial growth caused by food residues. By adding certain bactericidal and antibacterial ingredients to mouthwash, it can effectively reduce oral bacteria that cause problems such as tooth decay, oral ulcers, and gum bleeding, and improve the oral environment. The mention in the Book of Rites that 'when the rooster crows at the beginning, rinse with salt' reflects the ancient people's use of salt water for oral cleaning and care. So what are the precautions for daily use of mouthwash? For friends who have just come into contact with mouthwash, it is recommended to choose some mild daily care mouthwash, some of which are too irritating and may cause discomfort. Furthermore, it is necessary to learn to distinguish the antibacterial principles of mouthwashes. Some broad-spectrum bactericidal mouthwashes have strong bactericidal ability, but long-term use may produce side effects, such as some medical postoperative mouthwashes. It is more suitable to choose natural plant ingredients for daily care, and long-term use does not worry about side effects. The use of mouthwash is also important. When gargling, tightly close your lips and slightly open your upper and lower teeth to gently compress the liquid through the interdental area. Then agitate the cheeks and lips to allow the solution to fully contact the tooth surface, gums, and mucosal surface in the oral cavity. Simultaneously exercise the tongue to allow the mouthwash to freely contact the tooth surface and space between teeth. Rinse the debris and food residue remaining in various parts of the mouth several times before and after using hydraulic power, and then spit out the mouthwash. Generally, rinse your mouth after brushing your teeth in the morning and evening or after meals to replenish cleanliness, remove food residue, and freshen your breath.
