Wearing a mask every day because of Covid-19 may have made you more aware of the, ahem, freshness of your breath. Try these tips from Smilefocus to prevent bad breath before it starts:
- Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings. Your dentist will clean your teeth more thoroughly than you are ever able to and can treat any gingival disease or cavities, common causes of persistent bad breath.
- Brush not only your teeth but also your gums and tongue, and floss daily to remove trapped food and bacteria that cannot be reached by brushing alone.
- Drink water regularly to keep your mouth flushed and prevent bacteria getting a hold.
Breath still stinky after following these steps? Consult your doctor to rule out other possible causes.
