  • Alcohol-free Mouthwash & Toothpastes

    Anyone have any thoughts, observations and recommendations related to mouth washes and toothpastes?

    I've mainly been using Listerine but wondering if I should switch to an Alcohol free MouthWash

    I've recently tried Corsodyl which tastes really foul but I think it's pretty good.

    I also saw SuperDrug currently have a 2 for 1 offer on their range which includes an alcohol free one for sensitive teeth which tastes much nicer. It also has more then double the fluoride of the Listerine I was using.

    As for toothpaste just trying the night time version of this

    BTW a very interesting find here:

    Listerine is viscous stuff, dentists I don't know don't like it but for no particularly good reason.

    Any particular reason for switching to alcohol free?

      Corsodyl stains the teeth so use with care.

        I think it will stain more of you drink tea or coffee right away or if used long term for months on end.

        As for the Alcohol I think it's mainly in there to give the mouthwash a longer shelf life, improve taste and cleaning action - but some people can find it dries out their mouths too.

          dental PH is great! its whats recomended by piercists after oral piercings.

            Crest makes an alcohol one. Alcohol based mouthwashes hurt burn a bit but that one had a weird texture to it and I wasn't a fan so I'll just stick with the Act.
            Of all the mistakes you've made, the best are yet to come.

              I saw I first posted about 8 months ago thought a follow up would be handy ..

              Just tried Corsodyl Daily Defence - a mint version with about a quarter of the active ingredient of the regular version - also tastes foul!!!

              Weird thing is boots have their own brand version which is even more expensive!!

              Anyway I have to say even though regular Corsodyl tastes horrid and stains your teeth brown if you've not brushed really well beforehand - it really works wonders for dry mouth problems

              Shame there's no one decent mouthwash product does does everything without the drawbacks.

                Dentyl is alcohol-free and tastes good, especially the Clove one! Listerine just burns, don't touch it

                    That product was recalled in April .. so best to check if yours is affected.
