Good Solutions For Bad Breath

We realize that chronic bad breath can be an embarrassing thing for anyone to admit to. But if you are struggling with such an affliction, there are easy steps that you can take to make a big difference. Here are our suggestions in no particular order. We hope that this is useful information, and we hope to see your smiling face in one of our chairs some time soon.

Brush AND Floss

Brushing your teeth is always a great way to freshen things up in your mouth. And dental floss takes it even deeper. According to the ADA, everyone should brush and floss twice a day or more to force bacteria out from the hard-to-reach areas of your mouth in order to restore fresh breath with each new day. Plus, you can add a good mouthwash to the mix, and visit a great dentist frequently for checkups.

Steer Clear Of The Mints

Mints might be momentarily refreshing, especially after a weird-tasting meal. But most mints are loaded with sugar. As such, they might be a quick fix in a social situation. However, after the mint has disappeared into your mouth, what remains is a sugary residue that actually feeds the dangerous oral bacteria that is causing your bad breath in the first place.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking water helps immensely because saliva naturally eliminates that aforementioned bacteria that is lurking in your mouth and is causing your bad breath. And, for saliva to be made, you will need to drink plenty of water. If you can find water that contains fluoride, that’s better yet!

Give Your Tongue Some Love

Here’s something you may not be aware of: even if you brush and floss diligently, an episode of chronic bad breath can sometimes be tied to your tongue. It really pays to take some time to scrape and brush your tongue.
