Do you ever find yourself facing bad breath? Do you ever wonder how you can keep bad breath at bay? Do you ever worry because you find yourself facing bad breath frequently? Today, we’ll happily discuss these issues.

The most important thing you can do is practice good oral health. This includes brushing and flossing at home. Bad breath is often caused by food particles trapped in your plaque or by debris caught between your teeth. Using mouthwash and a tongue scraper can also remove even more bacteria, leaving your breath even fresher.

You can also avoid such as garlic and onions. Substances in these foods can work their way into your bloodstream, which eventually make their way into your lungs. This means you’ll breathe them out again, causing bad breath. Similarly, if you smoke, some chemicals may remain in your mouth, resulting in bad breath.

Finally, instead of eating a mint after you eat, try sugarless gum. Chewing gum will promote saliva flow which will carry bacteria out of your mouth. Conversely, mints contain sugar which can ultimately lead to bad breath and weaker teeth.  Also, try keeping your mouth wet. Drinking water or using a humidifier could help.

Again, if you try these tips but your breath still returns, please visit your dentist. To learn more about what you can do to prevent bad breath, or to learn if you should visit your dentist because of bad breath, please feel free to contact us soon. We’re eager to hear from you.
