Chalk another one up to TikTok teaching us things we probably should have learned a LONG time ago because a dentist is going viral for revealing you might want to avoid using mouthwash right after brushing your teeth!
Dr. Anna Peterson recently posted a video that has now been viewed over THREE MILLION times telling everyone that “using mouthwash after brushing your teeth is going to give you tooth decay.”
Apparently your toothpaste was around 1,450pp fluoride and your mouthwash only has 220pp fluoride so when you rinse with mouthwash right away you remove the protection your teeth already had with brushing your teeth.
Dr. Peterson claims the only time you could use mouthwash after brushing is if you wait 20-30 minutes after brushing your teeth so you might want to cut back on the mouthwash later today.
