All good general dentist or specialist will tell you the first line of resistance and defense in oral care starts with the big three: Brushing, Flossing and Rinsing with mouth wash. Bad breath originates from the nose, the stomach, the mouth, and is germinated in the gums and from the tongue, so when brushing ample time must be spent covering all these areas of the mouth, the teeth, the tongue, and the gums. It is even good to invest in a tongue scrapper. And remember brush, floss, and rinse at least two times a day for two to three minutes – at all cost.
Never under estimate the power of Trident. Trident cleans your teeth, and fights bad breath at its sources, in the tongue and the gums. And if you are not a fan of trident there are also specialty gums made just for fighting halitosis, such as, TheraBreath. Ask your dentist at Sedation Dental what gum they would recommend for you. And remember the goal is fresher breath – at all cost.
Apples, Carrots, and Celery are good for the body and great for the teeth. They strengthen and clean naturally and should be utilized daily in your battle against bad breath.
