Tips for Fresh Breath

August 15th, 2017 by Grandville Dental Health

Halitosis or bad breath haunts some people and won’t seem to go away. Bad breath affects about 25% of people globally. If this is the case for you, it doesn’t have to be. In fact, Grandville Dental has three tips you need for fresh breath!

Clean Your Tongue
The first thing you should do is clean your tongue. This can help you have fresh breath because it can wash away the odorous bacteria that live on the tongue. It’s best to brush it after you have brushed your teeth. You can also use a tongue scraper throughout the day.

Drink Water
The second thing you should do is drink water. Water not only helps wash away the bacteria in the mouth, but it can also wash away any stuck food particles between the teeth causing bad breath. Water can also help prevent dry mouth, which can cause bad breath. So, make sure to sip on water throughout the day – keep a water bottle with you or keep an eye out for drinking fountains.

Avoid Smoking
The third thing you should do is avoid smoking. Smoking can cause severely bad breath, and it can affect your entire health, so it’s best to avoid it altogether.
