5 Tips for fixing bad breath

One of the most common problems we see at the dental office is BAD BREATH

Do you feel like you suffer from bad breath, and do you want a fast-long term solution?

Well-read on as this blog will discuss 5 methods to permanently freshen up your breath and give you the confidence you deserve.

Although mints and gums are a good measure for temporary relief from bad breath, it does not address the underlying cause of your problem.

Tip 1) Brush and floss your teeth 2 times a day, every day

You can greatly improve the smell of your breath by simply brushing and flossing your teeth two times a day. Doing this help to remove bacteria and food particles from your mouth which are often the cause of your bad breath.

Tip 2) Brush your tongue

This is the most commonly forgotten step of good oral hygiene. The tongue can store hundreds of bacteria which lead to your bad breath. Brushing your tongue with your toothbrush or tongue scraper twice a day drastically reduces the amount of smelly bacteria giving you the fresh breath you deserve.

Tip 3) Avoid Smoking

Smoking tobacco and other substances can negatively affect your oral health and cause bad breath. IT will not only stain your teeth but also affect your gums allowing for the accumulation of bacteria and further worsening the odour in your mouth.

Tip 4) Rinse your mouth after meals

Rinsing your mouth with water after a meal will help to get rid of any food that may be stuck between your teeth or around your gums. This can make a drastic difference to the smell of your breath. A similar result can be achieved by chewing gum after a meal.
