Are you tired of your bad breath? If so, our dental team doesn’t blame you. No one likes bad breath. Fortunately, there are many things that can help keep bad breath at bay, like brush twice a day, floss once a day, and rinse daily. There are even little dental secrets that can help you have even more success in preventing bad breath, and our dentist, Dr. John Felkner, is happy to tell you all about them!

-Choose your toothpaste wisely: Toothpaste can help you prevent bad breath, especially mint toothpastes and toothpastes that have the freshening power of mouthwash. These products can give you the pristine breath you deserve. So, feel free to brush with them twice a day to improve your breath!

-Use a tongue scraper: Bacteria live on the tongue and release an odor, which is why cleaning your tongue can help you fight bad breath. Fortunately, using a tongue scraper throughout the day can regularly remove those bacteria and freshen your breath. This is because it can clean the tiny crevices of the tongue that your toothbrush might not be able to reach when you brush.

-Drink more water: Dry mouth can cause bad breath, which is why it’s best to keep your mouth moist throughout the day. You can do so by sipping on water regularly, so try to keep a water bottle with you.
