A good oral care routine including twice daily brushing and regular dentist appointments can help prevent bad breath. If bad breath persists your dentist can advise you on further treatment options.

  • Floss daily and use a tongue scraper to reach parts of the mouth missed when brushing teeth.
  • When you cannot brush your teeth after eating, rinse out your mouth with water instead.
  • Fruits high in Vitamin C levels such as berries are good for preventing bad breath causing gum disease.

“Bad breath is often caused by ineffective oral hygiene, medical conditions like diabetes and medication side effects.”
