If you suffer from bad breath, then you are probably searching for a way to treat it. You deserve a fresh and pristine breath! In a good case, poor oral hygiene or something as simple as a stuck food particle could be causing your bad breath. In a bad case, gum disease could be causing your bad breath. If you have persistent bad breath that won’t seem to go away, it’s best to schedule an appointment with your dentist, Dr. John Theriot.

To help you treat your bad breath that is caused by simple problems, our dental team has some recommendations for you. Those recommendations are:

-Keep up with oral hygiene (Oral hygiene can keep your teeth and gums clean as well as remove odorous food particles that are stuck in the smile.)

-Visit your dentist regularly (Make sure to attend your six-month checkups. The treatments involved deeply clean the smile and help you prevent gum disease.)

-Clean your tongue (You can do so by brushing your tongue after you brush your teeth or by using a tongue scraper.)

-Drink plenty of water (Staying hydrated can help you prevent dry mouth, which is another cause of bad breath.)

-Eat healthy foods (Healthy foods to eat include whole grains, fruits, green vegetables, and proteins.)

-Use mouthwash (Mouthwash can clean your mouth and freshen your breath. For added benefits, use antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash.)
