Bad breath can be a foul reality for some, so finding the right solution to rid ones self of bad breath becomes an important quest …one DentistsRUs can help you with, with these Bad Breath Busters!

Brush Frequently
Plaque is one of the main causes of bad breath. This bacteria builds upon it’s sticky self, and will cling to teeth and trap food within your pearly whites – all lending itself to bad breath. So brush more frequently to tackle this.

Floss More
Flossing is reported to make up 37% of your brushing routine. Without flossing, you still have plaque and food caught between your teeth …so floss more frequently to address this.

Rinse. Repeat.
Mouthwash can tackle tooth problems as well as protect your teeth against bacteria. Although mouthwash should not be overused, it is a good daily addition to your oral routine.

Scrape. Scrape. Scrape.
Your tongue that is. Scraping your tongue can rid you of all kinds of smelly bacteria that are clinging to its fuzzy pink coat – the tongue. So whether you brush it with your toothbrush, or buy a special scraper for it, brushing your tongue can greatly alleviate bad breath.

Quit Smoking
Need we say more?

Gum – The Chewy Kind
Chewing gum can help dislodge food from your teeth and stimulates helpful saliva, creating a natural defense against plaque and acid, and giving your mouth a minor cleaning between brushing.
Drink Water

A dry mouth can lead to a smelly mouth, so ensure you are drinking enough water to keep it the right level of moist.

At DentistsRUs, we want everyone to be proud of their smile, and having good breath is a big part of
that. So ensure you pay attention to these areas to help your breath stay fresh, and stop by any of our local dental offices in the Lower Mainland for your bi-annual checkup also!
