Cure for Bad Breath

Most people suffer from bad breath at one time or another in their lives whether it is from the dreaded “morning breath” or from foods that have a lot of garlic. The worst part about bad breath is that it most likely goes undetected until someone tells you, but most people will not. As a result, it is to your advantage to keep your breath fresh and get rid of bad breath before anyone has the chance to notice it.

The best defense against bad breath is good oral hygiene. Flossing once per day and brushing your teeth twice a day and after eating a meal can prevent the growth of harmful bacteria that can cause tooth decay, dental abscesses, and other oral health problems that cause bad breath. In addition, brushing and flossing helps to remove food particles that can contribute to bad breath.

If brushing and flossing do not seem to be enough, there are additional steps you can take. Use an anti-microbial mouth rinse to flush out additional bacteria and food particles. Chewing sugarless gum can also help stimulate the production of saliva and rinse food and bacteria from your mouth while the flavoring helps to freshen your breath. Another way to naturally freshen your breath is to eat leafy green, raw vegetables containing chlorophyll which removes plaque from your teeth.

If nothing you try seems to work, it is time to visit Dr. Frame, your Santa Clara dentist. Dr. Frame is a Santa Clara teeth cleaning expert. Regular checkups and cleanings are not only important to your oral health, they can eliminate problems that add to bad breath.
