As holiday parties begin, the last thing you want people to notice is your breath. A large aspect of how to combat bad breath is having a good oral care routine. Just consider this statistic:
Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
- Brush Two Minutes Twice a Day – If you struggle with breath problems, make sure you are brushing for at least two minutes twice a day. A thorough brushing routine is essential for maintaining fresh breath.
- Brush Your Tongue – This is often a part of the mouth people forget! When you are about to finish up your brushing routine, make sure you brush your tongue. It harbors a lot of bacteria.
- Floss – Food stuck between your teeth can lead to a wide range of issues. Don’t forget to floss before you brush.
However, sometimes bad breath is part of a lingering problem. If you have persistent bad breath, make an appointment. We’ll examine your mouth to make sure there aren’t any underlying issues or recommend products that can help.
