Stop Bad Breath by Starting Good Dental Care Habits

Bad Breath

Bad breath can happen to good people, but that doesn’t mean you have to like it or live with it. That’s why you need to know what you need to do to keep your breath clean and fresh. It all comes to some simple steps, such as practicing good dental care, regularly seeing an expert in family dentistry and avoiding the things that make your breath bad.

Saliva does more than keep your mouth moist. It actually washes away the plaque build-up that causes bad breath. That’s why it’s important to realize that certain situations can reduce the amount of saliva in your mouth so you’re ready to quell the smell. These include:

When you’re thirsty or hungry – There is less saliva in your mouth when there’s been little food or drink in your mouth, so remember to drink enough liquids and eat on a regular basis. If you’re dieting, try chewing gum or using mints to keep bad breath at bay.

When you drink alcohol – Alcoholic beverages can lead to a dry mouth, which causes bad breath. You can counteract the problem by remembering to floss after a night out and drinking some water before you go to sleep.

When you wake up – Your body produces less saliva when you sleep, which is why so many people start with day with less-than-fresh breath. Remember to floss in the morning to get your saliva flowing again.

When it comes to reducing bad breath, floss is your friend. Flossing on a daily basis can remove the bacteria, food particles, and plaque that lead to bad breath. In fact, numerous studies have found a link between bad breath and a lack of flossing. That’s why you must floss every day, along with practicing other good dental care like brushing your teeth twice a day, and using a mouthwash.

But if you regularly practice good dental care and still deal with chronic bad breath, you need to talk to an affordable dentist or your doctor to see if it’s the sign of bigger health issue. Bad breath can actually be a symptom of gum disease, diabetes, liver disease, or cancer. So talk to an expert to keep yourself in good health and good breath.
