Lately I have paid attention to my teeth because I hate to go to see the dentist. I start to use mouthwash again because it will clean the teeth well. Most of the time I will use it at night after brush my teeth. Because I will have enough time to do so before go to bed. The mouthwash I use is Oral-B.

I always use listerine after and before brushing my teeth. Yeah sometimes the taste can be a bit overbearing, and the burn can be as well, but sucking it up for 30 seconds really isn't that hard.

I suck it longer time because I think it may be much more helpful:) By the way, I don't know it can be used before brush the teeth. Is it better to do it after brush the teeth?

No I don't use mouthwash after brush my teeth. I don't know why, seems not my habit to clean my teeth twice LOL. But I did it before of course :)

I heard that using the mouthwash is healthier for your teeth. Sometimes brushing teeth is not enough yet. Anyway, I try to do both because I don't want to see the dentist:)

Yep. I use it after I brush my teeth. Sometimes if I'm in a rush I'll use the mouthwash and then do a quick brush with my toothbrush in lieu of a full 3-5 minute brush. I use Listerine. I've been using it for 10 years and I love it. I also find that if I'm getting a sore throat and I gargle with the Listerine it goes away faster, which is nice.

I use mouthwash after brushing my teeth in the morning and at night before bed. I have always used Listerine, it tastes pretty bad but it works. I recently tried the new orange flavor but I thought it was horrible, lol. I know eith mouthwash my mouth is always clean and fresh. Wouldn't it be nice if Listerine tasted better!

I once used the mouthwash instead of teeth brushing, but give up soon. Because I find the mouthwash is bad to my teeth.

I use Lavoris. I love the fresh cinnamon taste. I cannot find many that has a cinnamon flavor, so I stick with my favorite. What others have a cinnamon flavor?

I usually only use mouthwash at night after brushing ... I use Crest Pro-health and I think it's awesome ... it doesn't "burn" like some other mouthwash do ... so after trying several I decided to strick to that one ... plus it has a whitening effect too which is good because I drink coffee a lot!

hey thanks for the best response! Also what I like about crest is that it is a little less expensive than the leading brands ;-)

Crest is also a famous brand but I haven't tried their washmouth yet because it is not available here. Good to know that it does burn so much.

I sometimes do and sometimes doin't lol. It all depends on if I am in a hurry or not but I do try to at least once a day. I brush my teeth around three times a day but do use the mouthwash at night before bedtime.

Hi youless! Oh yes, I do use mouthwash after brushing my teeth and I usually do it regularly throughout the day because I do smoke a lot. I use Oral-B and sometimes Listerine. Take care and have a nice day.

Please try to smoke less and it's better to quit it:) I know it's not easy at all, but please try because it's good for your health.

I just brush my teeth thoroughly and carefully before going to bed. I am willing to spend a longer time for that so as to make sure every tooth is properly brushed. I had bought a blue mouthwash but I used it a couple of times only. I am afraid that if to use it too often, it might weaken the natural immunity of the mouth.

My doctor friend gave me two bottles of mouthwash, but I don't like the flavor of it. Therefore it is still put there in the corner. The doctor told me that it helps to improve the mouth breath and the acid smell from the stomach.

I think the mouthwash is also beneficial to the teech, sometimes only brushing the teeth isn't enough yet.

Yeah I use it too.Since I see some commercial saying that after burshing teeth there can be still some bacteria in your moouth, specialy in tongue.And mouthwash should help with it.
