Smile Rinsing: When (And Why) Your Temecula Dentist Suggests It

Your Temecula dentist wants you to remember that it’s very good for your oral health if you rinse your smile with water. You don’t even need to be near a sink. After all, you drink water! So, take a moment to swish it throughout your smile before you swallow, if necessary, and that will count! Now that you know you can pretty much rinse anywhere, at any time, you might ask: What’s the big deal? Is rinsing going to really help protect your smile health in a particular way that makes it worth the bit of effort? The answer is, yes! Sit back, relax, and allow our Temecula, CA dental team to wow you with the details!

It’s Helping Your Mouth Remain Healthy!

When you rinse your smile with H2O on a daily basis, explains your Temecula dentist, you’re doing something very smart. You’re cleaning your mouth. Is this identical to brushing your teeth, flossing your smile, etc.? Nope. However, you aren’t going to be able to brush and floss after each thing you eat or drink. Plus, water has some unique benefits that you just can’t get from dental hygiene alone. Consider the following:

  • When you rinse with water, you’re moistening your mouth. This is important in keeping oral tissue wet enough, which limits bacterial populations, lets you taste your food well, assists in a comfortably functioning mouth, and makes chewing and speaking comfortable, too.
  • When you rinse, you physically remove little morsels of food and bacteria from your mouth
  • Water can help to keep your mouth’s pH closer to neutral
  • Decay and other concerns are less common when you’re keeping your smile healthy by rinsing

It’s Protecting Your Smile’s Vibrancy!

Just a splash of water is powerful enough to remove bacteria and food to some degree, as your Temecula dentist has explained. What you may forget is that the foods you eat, the drinks you enjoy, and more tend to “coat” your smile. When they’re not acidic, they’re not colorful, and they’re safe for you, they’re not going to cause staining. However, if they are acidic, they are filled with color, or they’re generally unsafe, then they can negatively affect the vibrancy of your smile. Can we offer whitening or veneers? Of course! However, your dentist reminds you that when your goal is to keep your smile snow-white (especially if you’ve just received a cosmetic treatment), rinsing throughout the day is going to be extremely powerful!
