Canada’s Top 10 Mouthwashes

Even though mouthwash is not considered an essential part of your oral health routine by most dentists, many people like using mouthwash. And there is no doubt it can really help with gingivitis, bad breath and even whitening your teeth. But how do you pick the right one for you from the plethora of mouthwashes available in Canada? and Amazon Canada has teamed up to provide their list of Canada’s top 10 mouthwashes of 2020. This top ten list is based on product reviews, and product purchase volumes. Therefore, its not an absolute solution for choosing your own, but at the very least it may help you see what’s available.

Different Types

Some mouthwashes contain fluoride, others antiseptic components. So, depending on the issues you are having, or your goals, you may wish to add a mouthwash to your routine. Keep in mind however, using mouthwash should not replace brushing and/or flossing. Mouthwash is not as effective and is supplementary to help maintain good oral health.

No one should choose for you because our individual dental conditions vary. When deciding on one best suited for you consider that there are four main types of mouthwash.  

  1. Cosmetic Mouthwash freshens breath and offers the hope of whitening teeth ever so gradually.
  2. Fluoride Mouthwash containing sodium fluoride coats tooth enamel and prevents decay.
  3. Antiseptic Mouthwash kills bacteria common with gum disease, and eventual tooth decay.
  4. Natural Mouthwash is alcohol free and a better choice for sensitive teeth and gums.

Remember, your best choice is one best suited for you, but here are what most people have purchased and gave great reviews for during 2020. In order of best to least…

Our Opinion

Erbsville Dental in Waterloo does not promote a specific brand of mouthwash. Any of those chosen by consumers to be the best can help your oral health depending on your individual needs. Other Mouthwashes not listed here could also be good for you personally. Read labels carefully and get one to supplement a good oral heath routine if you choose to. And of course, avoid any rinse that contains sugar.
