What Can You Do About Bad Breath?

Whether you are trying to impress your boss or going on a date, you should always check your breath. Having bad breath does not lead to a good first impression.

Simply follow the steps given below to ensure you have a fresh and healthy mouth.

  • Brush, floss, and use mouthwash
    Trapped food and sticky buildup on your teeth can be collecting bacteria in your mouth. Bacteria is a very common source of bad breath. If this is the case, then brush your teeth at least twice and floss at least once a day. Try not to brush too rigorously, though, or you could hurt yourself! Occasional use of mouthwash is also helpful as it will kill bacteria and leave you with freshened breath.
  • Scrape your tongue
    The material building up on your tongue can be another source of bacteria. Try removing this layer using a toothbrush or a tongue scraper.
  • Stop smoking
    While it has already been established that smoking causes cancer, it can also stain teeth and cause foul breath. If you do happen to smoke, you should consider its cons and stop the deadly habit.
  • Moisten your mouth
    Dry mouth is another cause of bad breath. If you don’t happen to make enough saliva, you can end up with tooth decay as well. So always keep yourself hydrated. A nice habit is to keep a bottle of water on yourself at all times.
  • See your doctor
    In case all the tips given above have failed to eliminate the bad breath, go see a doctor. Tell them you have constant bad breath. There might be a possibility that your digestive system is causing this. However, do not worry until anything is proven with results. Just go see a doctor.
