I like to use mouthwash at night after I brush my teeth to help protect them over night, since it protects from plaque and gingivitis and bacteria for 24 hours. It also helps with morning breath as well, since I use it at night. I like that this does not contain alcohol so it doesn't burn like other mouth washes. My daughter loves using it as well, since it doesn't burn. I feel like it gives me and my family all around protection, in between routine dental check ups. We will definitely continue to use this.
