Mouthwash is useful for removing food stuck on teeth and eliminating bad breath. However, studies reveal that mouthwash is not suitable for all children. So, should your child use mouthwash?

Main takeaways:

– Experts advise against mouthwash use by children under six years because they can easily swallow it.

– Mouthwash contains fluoride, which puts your toddler at risk of dental fluorosis (white lines on teeth).

– Always ensure that your children use mouthwash in the presence of an adult.

Consult your dentist on the best mouthwash for your child.
