We spend a lot of time taking care of our skin and overall health. We spend a lot in buying skincare products, learning about the products and following various routines just to ward off unhealthy or ageing skin problems. But how often do we participate in taking care of our gums and teeth? No, just brushing your teeth once and twice (in a blue moon) doesn’t ensure total oral care. In fact, given the food intake we process on a daily basis and all the caffeinated drinks we savour on regular intervals actually lead to a lot of oral problems that we don’t consider till the red alert!
I got into a conversation with two of my Dental expert friends and this is what they have to say about Oral Hygiene :
While flossing ensures clean inner lining of teeth, mouthwashes ensure removal of any foreign particles, germs, infection or odour in total. Most of the mouthwashes contain a great percentage of alcohol in them, ethanol to be precise, which leads to a burning sensation and dryness in the mouth. Regular usage of alcoholic infused mouthwashes can also result in taste sensitivity. These are the major reasons why dentists recommend alcohol free mouthwashes for daily usage.
Keeping up with body friendly products, Himalaya Mouthwashes are 100% alcohol free, guaranteeing 100% oral care for even sensitive oral conditions. People with oral irritation, xerostomia (dehydrated mouth), low saliva flow and people taking radiation therapies or suffer from diabetes can use Himalaya Mouthwash with 0% alcohol without any problems.
Providing variety and making the process less mundane, Himalaya has launched three varieties of mouthwashes. Depending on the oral care priorities of individuals, one can pick the Himalaya Herbals Mouthwash that best works for their needs.
