If you are using anti bec mouthwash then is there any need for toothpaste of they are just 2 different things?

Mouthwash: Mouthwash is definitely not a substitute for tooth brushing! There are sticky substances in plaque which cannot be simply "rinsed off". As well, you not only need to brush your teeth, but also floss them as no toothbrush can get between the teeth. These personal hygiene care issues must also be evaluated and reinforced by visits to your dentist and hygienist. ...Read more

Please help! what is the best whitening toothpaste/mouthwash?

Please help! what is the best whitening toothpaste/mouthwash?

Whitening methods?: To the best of my knowledge, i don't believe there are any mouthwashes that can really whiten teeth. Whitening toothpastes are more abrasive and remove surface stain, and should not be used on a regular basis. Some may have whitening agents but the effectiveness is limited at best. I would suggest you see a dentist to discuss all your tooth whitening options before doing anything. ...Read more

Which is better: the optic white toothpaste or mouthwash?

Tooth Whitening: Actually, colgate offers a "kit" of bleaching products by optic white. They include a tooth paste and a rinse. My opinion is that in combination, this is a "good" plan; however, keep in mind that these are both "over-the-counter" products and their efficacy is at a "safe" level because of this classification. A dentist prescribed product or "in-office" procedure would be more effective. ...Read more
