This informative table provides details about therapeutic and cosmetic mouthrinses. Dental hygienists are prevention experts, and this expertise includes in-depth knowledge of oral health care products. This guide is intended to help you sort through the available mouthrinse options, both therapeutic and cosmetic, so that you can make educated recommendations to patients. We hope you find this guide useful when offering suggestions to patients who wish to improve their daily oral care regimens through the addition of a mouthrinse.
