Don’t scare Santa away: How to fight bad breath this Christmas!
This holiday season, whether you’re celebrating with friends or family, you want to be able to look and feel your best. When it comes to feeling confident, bad breath can be a great cause for embarrassment or shame. So, what are the best ways to fight bad breath and feel confident this Christmas?
One of the simplest ways to combat bad breath is to drink enough water. Hydration is important so that the mouth can produce enough saliva. Saliva plays a significant role in maintaining oral health because it helps clean and rinse the mouth.
Practice Dental Hygiene
Brushing and flossing are not only needed for your oral health, they are an integral part of fighting or preventing bad breath. When brushing and flossing are neglected, the food particles and bacteria that linger in the mouth can cause bad breath. We recommend that you brush your teeth twice each day and floss once daily.
Brush or Scrape Your Tongue
Bacteria and compounds can form and collect on your tongue that put off an unpleasant odor. Cleaning your tongue regularly can help fight halitosis. To clean your tongue, either brush your tongue from back to front or use a tongue scraper.
Mouthwash should never replace brushing and flossing. However, using mouthwash regularly can help in the fight against bad breath.
