dental care


Question by  James79 (53)

Are there any mouthwashes that don't contain alcohol?

I need to use alcohol-free products.

Yes. I bought it in Sprouts Supermarket in Dallas. It was sort of expensive--about $10 for 16.9 ounces. Called: The Natural Dentist Healthy Gums. It is an anti-gingivitis/anti plaque rinse that I've doubled as a mouthwash. Created by a dentist. Phone number on bottle is: 1-800-615-6895 for more information.

One natural mouthwash you could make youself is to boil water and fill a cup full. Then add 3-4 big spoons of salt (normal table salt) to it. Mix it well and leave it for 2 min, not longer as it still should be very hot. Use this to gurgle!

Yes there are, almost every major brand as alcohol free mouthwash, I know for a fact that listerine has one. Many people complain about the burning sensation so the big brands have started offering non alcohol products. They do taste different though and in my experience leave a weird taste in my mouth.

Most major brands of mouthwash offer an alcohol free version. Listerine just introduced the "Zero" line, which boasts no alcohol. ACT mouthwash also comes in alcohol free. Most children's washes contain little or no alcohol. Oral-B also offers an alcohol free version. If these are not available in your local market, try a drug store (like CVS)

Listermint and Oral-B both make moutwashes that are alcohol-free. There's always the tried-and-true baking soda, which is alcohol free, that is great for oral hygiene. If you use mouthwash to prevent bad breath, anything with peppermint, spearmint, or almond have been known to help. Overall, mouthwash isn't really necessary for oral hygiene, brushing and flossing will do the trick.

Yes, Oral B offers a mouthwash without alcohol. I use it because mouthwash with alcohol irritates my mucous membranes. I have no problem using the Oral B one though.
