Bad breath can be unpleasant for both those who suffer from it and those around them affected by it. It is commonly known that poor dental hygiene causes most cases of bad breath. In addition to improving your home care routine, you can cut down on bad breath by regular visits to the dentist for cleanings and by paying a bit more attention to your diet.
Simply brushing your teeth regularly doesn't contribute to an effective teeth-cleaning routine. You'll need to include flossing after brushing. Flossing daily helps dislodge small pieces of food that may be stuck between your teeth. These food bits can have a foul odor, so it is best to get them out of your mouth. You should also scrape or brush your tongue daily to help remove any germs lurking after cleaning, making sure to rinse and get all the extra saliva out of your mouth after scraping. Take care in brushing; make sure you reach every tooth sometimes the ones at the back are forgotten.
