Are you tired of your embarrassing odorous breath? If so, our dentists, Dr. Pallotto and Dr. Osmolinski, can help you rock a fresh breath. Fortunately, there are things you can do to improve the smell of your breath and eliminate this hygiene issue, and they are happy to tell you all about them!

First, clean your tongue.  Unfortunately, your tongue harbors bacteria that can cause bad breath. So, make sure to clean it regularly and wash away the bacteria. All you need to do is brush your tongue after you’ve brushed your teeth or use a tongue scraper regularly.

Second, drink water. Water can also help wash oral bacteria away. It can also wash away any food particles that are stuck between the teeth creating bad breath. So, it’s best to sip on water throughout the day. It’s easiest to carry a water bottle around with you or keep an eye out for drinking fountains.

Third, don’t smoke. Smoking can cause extreme bad breath. It can also do more than just cause bad breath, including affecting your entire health. So, it’s best to just stop smoking. You can save your breath, smile, and body if you do so.
