In both business and your personal life there is only one chance to make a first impression. Bad breath doesn’t have to be a part of someone’s first perception of you. Try the following 3 tips to always be confident that your breath is smelling great!
1. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss, and scrape your tongue. Bad breath is caused by a dirty mouth, as bacteria develops from food particles trapped in your teeth. Keeping your mouth clean is vital to having good breath.
2. Drink plenty of water. Dryness is a cause of bad breath, and drinking water will help keep your mouth moist. Water also aids in keeping your mouth clean by flushing odor-causing debris out from between your teeth.
3. Chewing xylitol gum inhibits odor caused by bacteria. Bacteria thrives on sugar and breaks down into acids; these acids can make your breath smell unappealing. Xylitol is a sugar alternative that can’t be broken down by bacteria, which means that your breath will only have the scent of your gum.
Having fresh breath ultimately comes from practicing good oral hygiene. Call the experts at The Dental Center today to schedule an appointment!
