Dealing with bad breath can be an embarrassing problem. To help your bad breath while you are at home, we’re offering a few tips to relieve the problem.
- Stay hydrated. If you aren’t drinking enough water, you aren’t getting rid of the food particles and bacteria that are in your mouth. This can lead to breath problems!
- Eat fruits and vegetables. Apples, carrots, and celery are examples of fruits and veggies that produce saliva that helps clear away bacteria. Others that are Vitamin C-rich can also help with bad breath.
- Floss regularly. Flossing removes food particles trapped in your teeth that can cause bad breath.
- Chew sugar-free gum. Gum is a great way to freshen your breath! Make sure you chew sugar-free gum to avoid the unhealthy impact of sugar on your teeth.
If your bad breath problems persist, you’ll want to come to see us for an examination. Bad breath can often be the result of an underlying oral health issue, like gum disease.
