Advertised heavily for various kinds of mouthwash in the television. That added up to that mouthwash can cure everything from bad breath to relationships, but now according to new research, that there is a downside. Mouth rinses contain often antibacterial substances and occupy you for many of them, it may ultimately mean that you are developing resistance to antibiotics, writes bbc News.

The danger of resistance
At Tandlægeforeningen is one just been made aware of the problem.

– The mundskyllevæsker available, containing either alcohol or antibacterial agents, and if you put antibacterials in something that you use every single day, so it would be inappropriate, because there may arise resistance, explains Ole Fields, who is a dentist and a vice president of Tandlægeforeningen.

One becomes resistant to antibiotics, it can mean that the body gets more and more difficult to fight infections for example in the oral cavity or other sites in the body.

Mouthwash should not be used
The results were on Thursday presented by Tandlægeforeningens year course of the Norwegian professor and the dentist Anne Scheie, who is behind the research. She recommended that one generally should not use mouthwash.

– In general, normal healthy people do not need to use such products. Instead, they must learn how to use their toothbrush, floss and brush between the teeth. It is in the long run also the cheapest for patients, says Ole Fields.

Only symbolic value
There is not much good to say about the mouthwash according to Tandlægeforeningen.

– The only thing I can see as a dentist is that some people think it is more interesting to fit his mouth. But we would not recommend that you do this every day, because it is not necessary for the normal patient, explains Ole Fields.

According to Ole Fields, there is a very small group of people, how mouthwash can benefit and he recommends that you ask with his dentist, if you are in doubt.
