Posted on 12/7/2020 by Amy
Keeping your breath fresh should be your priority while on the go. But this is not an easy task for everyone unless you know how to go about it. If not, your daily brushing of teeth can turn out to be an exercise in futility. And your oral order will become persistent, forcing you to shy away from your friends. While regular flossing and brushing can give you a solution to oral hygiene, sometimes you need a few tips to keep your breath fresh.
Stop Eating Certain Foods or Drinks
Your bad breath could be a result of eating foods such as garlic, ginger, onions, or drinking coffee and alcohol. These consumables can cause damage to the oral microbiome in your oral cavity. These microorganisms are essential to maintaining your oral health. They play a significant role in keeping a proper oral ecological balance for everyone. Destruction of the oral microbiome will make your mouth dry and cause a stinky breath. You can prevent this problem by eliminating certain types of foods and drinks from your diet.
Observe Proper Oral Hygiene
Oxygen-hating bacteria (anaerobic bacteria) is another cause of bad breath in your mouth. These bacteria nestle into specific sections of the mouth, causing inflammation or bleeding of your gums. As such, the bacteria create a smelly, sulphuric byproduct, leading to unpleasant breath. You can use a tongue scraper to get rid of the bacteria hiding in the filaments of your tongue. Alternatively, you may use an oxygenated mouthwash to eliminate this anaerobic bacteria from your mouth. Or you can turn to alcohol-free mouthwash to remove any microorganism responsible for causing bad breath. Other remedies include chewing parsley, sugar-free gum, or sugar-free-candy to freshen your breath. Most importantly, drink plenty of water to wash away any particles left in the mouth after taking a meal. For more tips on how to keep your breath fresh, please call us, and we will assist you.
