Dental Hygiene Tips with Carol. Are you experiencing signs of halitosis?

Posted on: November 7th, 2018 | Categories: Blog

  Hygienist Carol!  

Are you experiencing signs of halitosis (bad breath)? Are you constantly covering your mouth with your hands when you are talking? Carol is here to provide you with some helpful tips if you are experiencing bad breath.

  1. Brush & Floss daily- at least two times per day. This will help to remove stubborn food particles remaining in between your teeth and gums.
  2. Use an oral mouth rinse, used to flush out bacteria.
  3. Consider an electric toothbrush. Electric toothbrush’s are more effective at removing plaque and bacteria in those hard to reach places.
  4. Avoid foods with strong odors such as garlic, red onions, coffee & more. Garlic and red onions both have sulfuric compounds that get absorbed into our bloodstream and can cause bad breath several hours after eating.
  5. Schedule your routine hygiene visit and check-ups as these visit are essential in maintaining excellent oral hygiene.
