Bad breath is never pleasant, yet there are a number of easy ways to improve your breath. Your dentist can help advise on ways to avoid bad breath which can also help the health of the teeth and gums.

Key takeaways:

– Twice daily teeth brushing removes the plaque where the bacteria which causes bad breath gathers.

– The tongue can be a breeding ground for bacteria, so take care not to forget to gently brush or scrape the tongue.

– Keeping your gums healthy with regular dentist check-ups helps prevent gum disease, another cause of bad breath.

“You can also help your breath if you swish your mouth with plain water after you eat. It can get rid of food particles that get stuck in your teeth.”
