5 Ways to Beat Bad Breath

We’ve all been there...that horrible moment when someone calls you out for having bad breath! It’s always cringeworthy and all you want to do is curl up and hide - we get it! Bad breath is very common but it can be avoided. We have 5 ways to beat bad breath so you’ll never have to be put in that awkward position ever again...

  1. Get Rid of Any Cavities: Cavities are the number one cause of bad breath. It may sound obvious but if you brush and floss then you get rid of the trapped food and bacteria that lead to cavities and cause bad breath. We advise that you brush your teeth at least twice a day (after meals and before going to bed at night). Also, regular check-ups  and x-rays are important to diagnose any leaking restorations or areas of decay. 

  2. Rinse Your Mouth Out: Don’t forget t rinse your mouth after you brush and floss. Besides freshening your breath, a mouthwash adds extra protection by getting rid of bacteria. A fresh minty taste can make you feel more confident. But be sure the mouthwash you choose kills the germs that cause bad breath.
