Which Mouth Wash is good? Beware of advertisements when choosing consumer dental products !

In a marketing driven country, consumer dental products are often pushed with claims to do wonders for your dental needs.  Mouth rinses and toothpastes have been introduced with claims to help promote combinations of treatments.  Here is a case where the FDA has contacted CVS to address inappropriate claims on the label of their CVS Complete Care Anticavity Mouth Wash.

Apparently, we need to be cautious when choosing a product with the claim :  “Helps prevent cavities, Kills germs that cause bad breath, Rebuilds enamel and strengthens teeth, and Promotes healthy gums.”

Which mouth wash and toothpaste are you using at home, and how did you make that choice?

Read the letter in the link below, and be careful when choosing your dental products.

Warning Letters CVS Pharmacy, Inc. 9/27/10.
