Does Alcohol Help Rid Your Mouth of Gum Disease?
The myth that using alcohol or an alcohol-based mouthwash to rid your mouth of gum disease is just that - a myth. When you use anything with alcohol in a mouth that is struggling with gum disease, it can actually make it worse.

Alcohol dries out your mouth, which prevents your mouth from naturally washing away food particles and bacteria. This lets more bacteria grow, which can increase the severity of your gum disease. What you want to do is stick with an antibacterial or antimicrobial mouthwash and avoid alcohol as much as possible This way, the bacteria levels stay down, and your dental team can get your gum disease under control.
