Using mouthwash after brushing teeth helps to get to the hard to reach places
Effective and regular brushing is necessary to keep your mouth healthy, but it isn't enough. Food debris and dental plaque can become lodged in hard to reach places. For a more complete clean, it is recommended that you also add dental floss and mouthwash to your daily routine.
Getting to hard to reach places
Used daily, as well as brushing, dental floss removes plaque between teeth, getting to the places that a toothbrush can’t always reach. Additionally using mouthwash on a daily basis reaches places even dental floss can’t reach, such as:
Parts of the gum line
Between teeth that overlap, for example, or which are extremely close
The bottom of the mouth and around molars
The ingredients of daily mouthwashes contribute to better oral hygiene by fighting against bacteria. Daily mouthwashes also complement the act of brushing and flossing by getting to those places that cannot be reached with a toothbrush and dental floss.

Difference between treatment mouthwash and daily mouthwash
There are mouthwashes for daily use and mouthwashes for curative treatment of specific diseases. Treatment mouthwashes are generally recommended for shorter term use. On the other hand, daily mouthwashes are designed to be used every day in addition to brushing and flossing.
