In brief: Certainly

Fluoride mouth rinses help reduce and prevent tooth decay.
Clinical studies have demonstrated that use of a Fluoride mouth rinse and Fluoride toothpaste can provide extra protection against tooth decay over that provided by Fluoride toothpaste alone. Fluoride mouth rinse is not recommended for children age six or younger because they may swallow the rinse.

In brief: Yes

It can add Fluoride to repair the damage done by acidic foods and drinks to your enamel.
There is a limit to how much is beneficial so rinsing 1-2 times a day is plenty especially as you use your normal fluoridated tooth paste.

In brief: Fluoride

Research shows that Fluoride helps prevent cavities in children and adults by making teeth more resistant to the acid attacks that cause cavities.
Fluoride helps rebuild (remineralize) weakened tooth enamel and reverse early signs of decay. When you brush your teeth with Fluoride toothpaste, or use other Fluoride dental products, you are providing a “topical” benefit.
