The Tips You Need to Fight Bad Breath

There are many things that can cause bad breath, like oral bacteria, food stuck in the smile, and much more. Bad breath is a common occurrence for many, but it can be extremely embarrassing and inconvenient. So, if you’re interested in fighting bad breath throughout the day, our Smiles Dental team has some tips for you! If you do the following things, your breath will stay in tip-top shape:

soft and firm toothbrushes and toothpaste

Brush Your Teeth

We recommend brushing your teeth after every meal and snack. This will help you eliminate the food particles in your mouth that are causing your bad breath. So, keep a toothbrush and toothpaste with you at all times so it’s easier to frequently clean your smile. You can also carry a pocket-sized floss and mouthwash with you to completely clean your mouth and freshen your breath.

Use a Tongue Scraper

Tongue scrapers are great tools that remove the bacteria and germs from your tongue’s surface. With just a gentle sweep of the scraper, the bacteria that is causing your smelly breath will disappear and your breath will be fresh once again.

Chew Sugarless Gum

Yes, gum can quickly change your breath from being something stinky to being something fresh. However, sugary gum can also cause tooth decay. So, the best thing you can do for your oral health is eliminate your rancid breath with sugarless gum.
