Mouthwash is a great addition to add to your child daily oral routine once your child turns 6. Extra protection against cavities is really helpful since cavities are on the rise in younger kids today.

Listerine mouthwash is a great rinse for the kids. The mint flavour is great and is not very strong as the adult version. It helps fight cavities and helps with bad breath issues as well.

The only down side is that it doesn’t have natural ingredients and mostly uses fluoride as it’s active ingredient.
