Adenoid/ tonsillectomy post, healing wounds with antiseptic sprays? Recommendations? Is Tom's alcohol free mouthwash ok?
Ask pediatrician: This is absolutely a great question to ask the Dr who treats your child. No reason to guess. Until you hear from the Dr., ask your pharmacist. Best! ...Read more
Yes: Yes, Fluoride rinses are very good for your teeth. I am also a big fan of listerine because it is so good for your gums and removes the subgingival bacteria that cause gingivitis. I myself use listerine once a day and get my Fluoride through toothpaste twice a day. But Fluoride rinses are great too. I would recommend the Fluoride rinse morning and night after brushing and listerine at noon. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Hmmm: You can brush with either;it is the mechanical action of the brush that removes the bacterial build up. Toothpaste will give you some Fluoride and has a mild abrasive to help remove stain. Mouthwash will 'freshen' your breath better but has no Fluoride or abrasive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not at all: Listerine contains antibacterial ingredients, and the fluoride is the best thing to prevent cavities. Use only as directed on label. Do not overuse. Mouthwash does not replace either brushing or flossing. Brush 2x/day for 65-70% bacteria removal. Floss 1x/day to remove 25-30% of bacteria from between teeth where toothbrush can't reach. Use mouthwash 1x/day to remove 1-2% of bacteria. ...Read more

Many treatments: Poison ivy, oak and sumac rashes are an allergic response to oils produced by these plants. If you suspect you have been exposed wash your skin well to remove the oil. If you discover the itchy red rash instead, you will need to treat the symptoms. Anti-tich measures : baking soda, diphendyramine, and avoid overheating. Hydrocoritsone cream and domeboro soaks help too. See your doctor if severe. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
It couldn't hurt: The rinse will help a little to keep bad breath at bay, but you do have to have good teeth (no holes) and you must also practice good oral hygiene. The rinse will mostly help keep gingivitis or mild periodontitis in check. Bad breath is not only an oral problem but is possibly caused by what you have in your stomach. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Almost any: Really the most important thing is the mechanical motion of the tooth brush done properly and often. The tooth paste is abrasive and helps remove some of the debris but really the Fluoride is the most important component of the paste so as i tell my patients, the best toothpaste is the one with Fluoride that you use right. Don't buy too much into the whitening pastes either. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Maybe...: I have seen this in patients, though i understand the formula had been changed. Your question would require a broad generalization to answer in this venue. The best answer would be from your dentist at your regular check-up; this would address the specifics of your mouth :). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
