Hydrogen peroxide as a mouthrinse was once thought to be an effective oral care product. However, literature shows that mucosal abnormalities can result from long-term use of such products, especially high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide. Therefore, hydrogen peroxide rinses are not recommended. Furthermore, patients tend to respond negatively to the taste and use of hydrogen peroxide as a rinse. With the numerous proven and safe mouthrinses on the market today there are better options for daily oral care.
