I think that mouthwash is a very effective way of protecting your teeth and your gums. I have tried a number of mouthwash and I think that the best so far would be Colgate Plax. To me, it’s better than Listerine for 2 reasons.
1) No Alcohol. I think it is important that we shouldn’t be using Alcohol-based product. It is a fact that long term exposure to alcohol can potentially lead to oral sores or even oral cancer. I know that Alcohol is suppose to disinfect the mouth. However, this disinfection will also kill the good bacterias!
2) No burning sensation. This is linked to Alcohol too. I hate the feeling of that burning sensation and I was hesitant to use such product until Colgate Plax comes with a non-Alcohol version.
Quite frankly, I think it feels good using Colgate Plax. The only question that I would like to ask the readers are: Should I rinse my mouth after the mouthwash? Let me know in your comments.
