We’ve all been there before, we’re in a rush to leave the house to get somewhere important and once you go to approach someone you remember – you forgot to brush your teeth or use mouthwash. Even if you take great care of your teeth, you may still suffer from chronic bad breath. An estimated 80 million people suffer from Halitosis, or in layman’s terms, bad breath.
At Wynnewood Dental Arts, we offer dental anxiety services in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas, so we’ve experienced bad breath almost every day. We are constantly helping our patients improve their breath, so we’re constantly giving out tips like:
Brushing TWICE daily
The absolute best way to prevent bad breath is going further than just brushing as soon as you wake up. Brushing your teeth in the beginning and end of each day will help eliminate any bad breath issues. For that extra oomph, try brushing a third time throughout the day with baking soda to eliminate any acidity in the mouth.
If you’re someone who can confess to always forgetting to floss, you should know that flossing is key to eliminating bad breath. Without flossing, food debris can lay dormant in between your teeth making it an all you can eat feast for bacteria that causes bad breath.
Pay Attention To What Goes in Your Mouth
It may seem like common sense that the food and drink you consume can help lead to bad breath, but a lot of things that may contribute to bad breath. Are you a smoker, chew tobacco, or consume a lot of sugary candies? All of those can help lead to bad breath.
