When should you use mouthwash?

My periodontist advice to not rinse after brushing because it will be rinsing the fluoride out of your mouth. But, he did say if I want to use fluoride mouthwash, then I would wait 30 mins after to do it. I was wondering can I use Listerine to rinse my mouth to kill bacteria, brush my teeth, and then use fluoride mouthwash afterwards? Any dentists or qualified personnel please help this question please! Thank you!

    Dentists are idiots and your periodontist is an idiot, too - simple like that.

    Rinse with saltwater (you can use nice himalayan salt) and use your self-made tooth paste. Avoid fluoride everywhere in any case!

    This man trained in his job for many years, so knows what he is talking about.

    Brush your teeth, wait then use mouthwash.

    Your way is overdosing and will harm your gums.
