If you have problems with bad breath, you don’t need to worry any longer. It’s entirely possible to start the new year with fresh breath so you can regain the confidence you used to have in social situations before your bad breath made you afraid to participate in conversation.
There are a few solutions to bad breath, but today we’re going to look at two of them that our team here at Dentistry For Today in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, recommends you investigate to see what they can do for you.
Use a tongue scraper
One of the leading causes of bad breath is a collection of bacteria on your tongue that you either don’t effectively clean while brushing, or it gathers during the day while you eat a drink. For some people more bacteria accumulates on their tongue than others.
Mouthwash is one of the most overlooked tools you can implement into your oral health routine. A lot of people think that just brushing and flossing is enough to keep your breath fresh all day long, but that’s just not true. Mouthwash acts as a final cleanser, killing whatever bacteria your brushing, flossing, and tongue scraping couldn’t. It also extends the period of time during which you’ll have minty-fresh breath.
Having great breath isn’t terribly difficult – it just takes a bit of extra work. However, if you put in the extra work and find that you’re still suffering from breath issues, you need to see Dr. Robin Cropper immediately, as chronic bad breath is usually a sign of an underlying condition. Call us at 502-517-0073 if that’s the case.
