 sodium fluoride rinse

I was recently diagnosed with mild gingivitis. My dentist gave me a deep
cleaning and sold me a $15 bottle of sodium fluoride rinse with
instructions to us it for 3 months, after a month it's almost gone. is
there something over the counter I can use that would do the same thing?

Short answer, Chris, no.  Over the counter products with fluoride have such
a low concentration of fluoride that they are not of much use for therapy.
Have you perhaps been guilty of using more than directed of your fluoride.
Many of us think that if a little is good, a lot must be better.  Also,
check back with your dentist.  Your gingival health may have improved
enough that the fluoride may be no longer needed, or can be decreased.  You
may also wish to ask him or her about the OXYFRESH line of dental products.
 I have used them in my practice with very much success.  If you or your
dentist wish to ask questions about OXYFRESH, feel free to contact me.  I
hope that this helps.  WC DDS

Hi
As far as gingivitis goes, certain mouthwashes can help (I recommend
Corsodyl or Chlorohex) but nothing works as well as effective
toothbrushing and flossing. And I don't mean one good brush every few
months like some of my patients seem to believe (Just before they see
me usually) this has to be a frequent occurence ;)
Gingivitis is caused by plaque and mothwashes simply are not effective
at removing it. Brushes are provided they are used with the
appropriate care and attention.
yours
