Hello doctor,

Kindly suggest which mouthwash and paste is good to use on daily basis.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

On daily basis, it is suggested that one should try tooth brushing with paste recommended by the American dental association (ADA) and Indian dental association (IDA). While buying a paste, you should look for whether it is ADA or IDA approved. Second is choose the paste containing ingredients like fluoride, sorbitol, glycerol, sodium lauryl sulfate, calcium carbonate, and saccharin. You can use them daily particularly before sleeping.

However, if you have sensitivity in teeth and issue with cold things like ice cream, then you can try pastes containing high fluoride which strengthens teeth and prevents sensitivity and also prevents further progress of cavities. You should try usual toothpaste but after three months try this fluoride-rich paste for one month so that you will not develop future caries.

Mouthwashes contains mostly Chlorohexidine, but it is not recommended for daily use. It is used in the case when there are gum inflammation and bad breath. Moreover, it is not recommended for more than 15 days as these cause staining of teeth sometimes. If you have gum infection or bad breathe, you can try it.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

You can try herbal mouthwashes. These are readily available like Meswak, Himalaya complete care, and Dabur red. And mouthwashes like Dr gingers, Jason and Aesop are commonly used. But remember if you are using mouthwash use it twice or thrice daily particularly before leaving for work or going for sleep. It reduces bad breath. Moreover, use it for 30 seconds after one hour of eating or drinking anything to prevent vomiting and nausea.
