Basics to Better Your Breath

dca-blog_bad-breath-boy

If your breath causes others to wince away, you need to know how to stop the smell and start feeling good about your breath. To make your bad breath just a bad memory, we’ve put some simple steps to cure for the condition right under your nose.

Many of us experience bad breath at some time in our lives and it often strikes when waking in the morning or after eating spicy foods. This is extremely normal because sleeping and eating affect the bacteria that bring bad breath, but it’s never pleasant and always something you want to fix fast.

So what’s the fastest fix for fresher breath? Lots of us turn to gum and mints, and while they provide brief relief, they merely mask bad breath by covering it up with a hint of minty scents.

It may seem simple, but the best way to treat and beat bad breath is by practicing good dental care and making regular visits to an affordable dentist. A regular dental care routine is the most effective way to reduce the bacteria in the mouth that can breed bad breath. To help you breathe a sigh of relief about getting better breath, chew on these helpful tips from family dentistry professionals.

3 Simple Ways to Beat Bad Breath

  1. Brush your teeth twice a day, and more often if needed, for no less than two minutes each time.
  2. Thoroughly floss every day to remove the food particles and plaque that can get trapped between teeth.
  3. Use an antimicrobial mouthwash every day to kill the bacteria that cause bad breath.
