Importance of Mouthwash

Mouthrinse is not recommended for children younger than 6 years of age unless directed by a dentist.  Swallowing reflexes may not be well developed in children this young, and they may swallow large amounts of the mouthrinse, which can trigger adverse events—like nausea, vomiting, and intoxication (due to the alcohol content in some rinses).1, 2 Check the product label for specific precautions and age recommendations.
