Bad breath can be both embarrassing and humiliating. Fortunately, there are several things you can do if you suffer from bad breath. First of all, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene. If you do not brush your teeth and floss daily, small bits of food will settle between your teeth. This will attract bacteria that lead to bad breath. Similarly, small bits of food in the teeth and on the tongue will rot and cause bad breath. We therefore recommend that you:
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day with toothpaste containing fluoride.
- Floss to clean between your teeth.
Contact your dentist if you constantly need to rinse your mouth. Mouthwash does not have a long-lasting effect.
