The Secret to Fresh Breath

Do you know someone who has consistent bad breath? Although an underlying problem such as periodontal disease can cause bacteria to collect and inhabit the oral cavity causing halitosis, a few simple steps can help prevent every day bad breath. Follow these few tips to ensure daily, fresh breath.
·Brush for at least two minutes to effectively remove plaque-biofilm
·Floss each day, wrapping the floss in a “C” shape to mechanically remove bacteria in between the teeth that you can’t see.
·Brush your tongue with a tongue cleaner/scraper every day to remove the collection of bacteria hiding on the surface of your tongue.
·Rinse with a restoring mouth wash that contains fluoride to help protect the teeth.
·Visit your dental health professional for a routine cleaning and exam for them to diagnose other causes of bad breath such as oral diseases and bacterial infections.
