A Refresher on Freshening Bad Breath


Are you bearing the burden of bad breath? You don’t have to suffer in silence. We’ve nosed around and found some refreshing ideas to quell that smell and let you put your best breath forward.

When it comes to bad breath, many people have it but few know how to fight it and fix it. The condition often occurs when waking in the morning or after eating spicy foods. While this is normal because sleeping and eating affect the bacteria that bring bad breath, it’s never pleasant and always something you want to fix fast.

Well, what’s the fastest fix for fresher breath? Many turn to mints and gum, and while they provide brief relief, they merely mask bad breath by covering it up with a hint of minty scents.

But the best way to treat and beat bad breath is by practicing good dental care and visiting an affordable dentist in Detroit twice a year. A regular dental care routine is the most effective way to reduce the bacteria in the mouth that breed bad breath. To help you breathe a sigh of relief about bettering your breath, chew on these three quick tips.

Top Tips for Fresher Breath

  • Brush your teeth twice a day, and more often if needed, for no less than two minutes every time.
  • Floss each day to remove the food particles and plaque that can get trapped between teeth.
  • Rinse with an antimicrobial mouthwash every day to kill the bacteria that cause bad breath.
