Smart Solutions for Halitosis

What dentists call halitosis is simply a case of bad breath. If you struggle with this problem, discover some healthy hygiene tips to make your breath better.

Brush and Floss at Least Twice a Day

Brushing and flossing are proven to be the most effective ways to curb halitosis. That’s because food and plaque can remain in your mouth, which attracts bacteria that releases foul odors. But family dentistry experts say that brushing and flossing at least twice a day for two minutes at a time lets you remove these dental dangers and reduce your chance of bad breath. 

Clean Your Tongue

You know it’s important to clean your teeth and gums, but you also should clean your tongue. That’s because it removes the bacteria coating your tongue that causes bad breath. By brushing your tongue with a toothbrush or tongue scraper, you can remove this bacteria and avoid halitosis.

Use a Mouth Rinse

Improve your at-home dental hygiene routine by rinsing twice a day with an antibacterial mouthwash designed to fight plaque and freshen your breath.

Drink Plenty of Water

Family dentistry experts say that one of the simplest ways to reduce halitosis is simply by drinking water throughout the day. That’s because it helps rinse away lingering food in your mouth, which attracts odor-causing bacteria. It also keeps your mouth moist to prevent a case of dry mouth, which is a common side effect of some medical conditions and medications.

Improve Your Daily Diet

You know that pungent foods such as garlic and onions can cause bad breath, but did you know that choosing healthy foods can help you avoid halitosis? Try to include these in your daily diet to keep your breath at its best:

  • Proteins including poultry, fish, lean meats, beans, seeds, and nuts
  • Whole grains
  • Dark green and orange vegetables
  • Fruit of all kinds

Receive Regular Professional Dental Care

Just as important as healthy oral hygiene at home is seeing an affordable dentist twice a year for professional check-ups and cleanings. See, many cases of bad breath are caused by serious dental issues. If you experience any of these problems, have them treated right away by an affordable dentist.
