What Habits can Lead to Unhealthy Teeth?

Recommendations on Getting Rid Of Bad Breath

Bad breath may have many causes. The only way to get rid of bad breath is through a multi-faceted approach.

Key takeaways:

– Ensure that you brush your teeth and brush your tongue which could be hosting bacteria that cause strong odor.

– Brush your teeth after every meal. Brushing twice per day is not just enough for people with bad breath.

– Drink lots of water to stay hydrated since a dry mouth could be the cause bad breath.

If food remains on your teeth because you don’t brush and you don’t floss, that food just sits in your mouth and is degraded by bacteria and you can just IMAGINE the odour that gives off.
