How to Get Rid of Your Bad Breath — For Good!
Has breath odor been threatening to ruin your social life and relationships? Take back control over your life and banish bad breath for good. Treating halitosis is easier than you think, as these tips from Dental Care at Kennestone show.
Brush and Floss Daily
Did you know that poor oral hygiene is the most common cause of bad breath?
Bad breath is highly preventable. You most likely just need to improve your brushing and flossing to experience fresher breath. Good oral hygiene removes odor-producing bacteria and slows the formation of smelly dental plaque.
Clean Your Tongue
If your breath doesn’t improve with more brushing and flossing, then you might need to pay attention to another surface in your mouth — a very large surface.
Your tongue has a lot of surface area that can host countless millions of sulfurous bacteria. Cleaning your tongue daily with a toothbrush or tongue scraper reduces this bacterial film and freshens your breath.
Drink Lots of Water
Dry mouth or dehydration can cause stinky breath. Freshen up by drinking more water throughout the day.
Cut Out Smelly Foods and Habits
Coffee, dairy, sugary drinks, onions, garlic, fish, cigarettes, chewing tobacco — there are many things that can cause bad breath. Try to identify and avoid items that make you feel self-conscious about your breath.
