Patients rely on their oral health professionals for sound advice and suggestions— on everything from oral hygiene regimens to restorative advice to which product is best for their unique oral health needs. One commonly sought recommendation is about mouthrinses. The large variety of mouthrinse formulations suggest there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Dimensions of Dental Hygiene presents our annual “Focus on Mouthrinses” to highlight the latest mouthrinse products and summarize their individual qualities by ingredients and indications. We hope you find this guide useful in your quest to deliver high-quality care and thoughtful recommendations to your patients.
