Conquering Bad Breath

If you struggle with bad breath or are consumed with worry that you may have bad breath, we have some easy tips to help you conquer your fear. 

  • Brush your teeth after consuming any food to remove odors from foods (garlic and onion are the most obvious guilty parties).
  • Use mouthwash that has no alcohol in it
  • When you brush your teeth, brush your tongue too.
  • Eating foods like carrots, celery, or popcorn can help remove plaque build-up in between brushing
  • Baking Soda is a natural odor absorber
  • Chew Sugarless gum to create saliva
  • Drink lots of water
  • Drink less caffeinated beverages
  • Schedule regular check-ups to make sure there are not other contributing factors
