Do mouthwashes help fight bad breath?

Q: Do mouthwashes help fight bad breath?

A: Most mouthwashes only help mask mouth odors for about 10 minutes.  To fight bad breath you need a mouthwash that kills bacteria.  The best mouthwashes for fighting odors and gum disease contain Chlorhexidine and are only available with a dentist’s prescription.
