Bad breath is extremely annoying and inconvenient. Good thing mouthwash has important ingredients that destroy bad breath. Those ingredients are:

Antibacterial agents: Bad breath is caused by bacteria, and the mouth is the perfect place for bacteria to live and spread. Because your breath is warm and moist, the bacteria spread over the tongue and between the teeth, which makes your breath less than pleasant. An effective mouthwash has an antibacterial agent, like alcohol, that removes the bacteria that is responsible for bad breath.

Germicides: Many types of mouthwash contain a germicide called cetylpyridinium chloride that not only kills germs, but it also reduces plaque buildup. Plaque is a major cause of gum disease and tooth decay, and both of those dental issues lead to bad breath. So, because the germicides prevent plaque buildup, you will have better breath when you swish.

Fluoride: Fluoride is a natural mineral that strengthens tooth enamel, and it’s often found in mouthwash. The fluoride helps your smile become less vulnerable to decay, which also helps you have better breath overall.

Because of these ingredients, mouthwash in Southfield, Michigan, can kill the bacteria and germs in your smile and give you the pristine and fresh breath you’ve been wanting.
