I'm curious if you should rinse your mouth with water after using mouthwash?

I'm curious if you should rinse your mouth with water after using mouthwash?

If it is for cavity prevention and the rinse contains fluoride, spit well, but best not to rinse--the remaining rinse continues to add Fluoride into your tooth. If it is to kill germs in mouth, ; you do not want the chemicals to be absorbed by your body, rinse off. Most otc products seem to expect no-rinse to offer its efficacy, however. Spit well. ...Read more

Today I made the mistake of using isopropyl alchahol instead of my usual mouthwash, and then I read it is harmful to the mouth, will that damage heal?

Today I made the mistake of using isopropyl alchahol instead of my usual mouthwash, and then I read it is harmful to the mouth, will that damage heal?

Of course: Isopropyl alcohol is dangerous to swallow (esp. large amounts) but in the mouth is just a mild irritant. Our bodies have an amazing capacity to heal themselves and the mucous membranes of the mouth heal the quickest. If you have ever burned your mouth on pizza or other hot food, no matter how bad the burn it is usually all better the next day. Any damage should fully heal very quickly. ...Read more
