Do I need to use mouthwash?

Mouthwash is typically in 3rd place when it comes to oral care.
#1 Would be brushing
#2 Would be flossing.
No matter what mouthwash companies say about their products
nothing can replace brushing and flossing.

If you do a good job at brushing and flossing and you would
like to ad mouthwash to your routine that would be great.

If you want to add a mouthwash, which one is best for you?

That depends on what you want to accomplish.
Some mouthwashes provide extra fluoride.
Some kill bugs.
Some simply freshen your breath.
Some are for people with dry mouth conditions.

So it really depends on what you want from the mouthwash.
Find out what you want, then either talk to your dentist and/or head
to the pharmacy and read the labels on the bottles.
