We’ve never been big mouthwash users. Although I love the idea of fresh minty breath, I’m not a fan of “the burn” that comes from traditional mouthwash.
CloSYS comes unflavored, and I was a little bit nervous about whether I would like the taste, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it truly didn’t have any flavor!
(My husband wasn’t a fan of the unflavored oral rinse, but you can easily add a couple drops of the mint flavoring that comes with the oral rinse to achieve a more traditional flavor.)
To use, I brushed my teeth like normal and then swished a couple capfulls of the oral rinse in my mouth for about 30 seconds. After I spit it out, my mouth felt really fresh!
CloSYS promises reduce harmful bacteria in your mouth and fights bad breath for more than eight hours. It does this through eliminating the volatile sulfur compounds that cause bad breath, so you’re not just covering up bad breath; you’re eliminating the source.
Beyond fresh breath, increasing evidence suggests that periodontal disease affects the risk of cardiovascular diseases as well as your overall health. Infections in your mouth may cause bacteria to enter into the blood stream and travel to other parts of the body like the heart. One more reason to pursue good oral health!
