Mouthwash Burning? What To Do?

Posted on 5/23/2022 by Office
Mouthwash Burning? What To Do?Do you ever get a burning sensation in your mouth after using mouthwash? If so, you are not alone. This is a common problem that many people experience. Read on to discuss what to do if you experience mouthwash burning and how to prevent the same.

Reasons Why Your Mouthwash Is Burning

If your mouthwash is burning, there are a few possible explanations. First, it may be that you are using an alcohol-based mouthwash. Alcohol is a drying agent, so it can cause your mouth to feel dry and irritated. If this is the case, try switching to a non-alcoholic mouthwash. You may also be experiencing a reaction to an ingredient in the mouthwash. If you have sensitive skin or allergies, you may want to try a different brand or flavor of mouthwash. Finally, it is possible that you are not using the mouthwash correctly. Be sure to follow the instructions on the bottle, and don't use more than recommended. If you are still having problems, talk to your dentist or doctor. With some research, you will find a mouthwash that works for you.

How To Find the Right Mouthwash?

Finding the right mouthwash can be overwhelming with all the different brands and options available. However, there are a few things you can keep in mind to help narrow down your choices. First, consider what type of oral health concerns you have. If you are trying to combat gingivitis or tooth decay, you will want to look for a mouthwash containing fluoride. If you are concerned about bad breath, on the other hand, you will want to look for a mouthwash that contains ingredients like menthol or eucalyptus oil. It might also help if you consider if you like a minty or more neutral flavor. Finally, keep in mind that some mouthwashes contain alcohol, which can cause dryness and irritation. If you have sensitive teeth or gums, you may want to choose an alcohol-free option.

When you keep these attributes in mind, be sure to find the right mouthwash for your needs. Talk to our dentist to learn more about finding the best mouthwash for you.
