Recently, a small but significant relationship has been identified between the use of over-the-counter mouthwash preparations containing greater than 25 percent alcohol and the development of oral cancer. This paper reviews the medical and dental literature, discusses the implications of long-term, excessive mouthwash use and makes recommendations regarding the use of mouthwash with a high alcohol content.
