Get rid of bad breath with ease

Many people use mouthwash as a way of neutralising their bad breath so that they can smile with confidence. However, mouthwash does not get right to the heart of the issue and does not provide a long term solution.

Bad breath is caused by bacteria accruing in your mouth and also by food particles that begin to decompose. Here are three ways to smile without worrying about bad breath:

– Brush your tongue as well as your teeth: bacteria can build up on your tongue

– Keep hydrated with water: water helps you to produce saliva which contains bacteria neutralising substances

– Brush your teeth after eating to get rid of food particles

If the problem persists, as this dentist led article explains, it may be down to more than just bad hygiene and so you should see your dentist.
