Today, August 6th, is national fresh breath day, so be sure to brush and floss today – and every day – in celebration!

There is nothing more embarrassing than realizing that your breath has a foul odor mid-conversation. And this scenario is just as unpleasant for the person you are talking to as well! Bad breath, or “Halitosis”, is most commonly caused by dental cavities, gum disease, poor oral hygiene, or a coating on the tongue, usually due to inflammation. Other causes include dry mouth, infection, intestinal issues, diabetes, and malnutrition.

Taking good care of your teeth and gums is the best way to ensure fresh breath. Here are some tips to follow daily to prevent bacteria and plaque from building up in your mouth:

  • Brush after meals
  • Floss before bedtime
  • Gargle and rinse with mouthwash
  • Replace your toothbrush every three months
  • Stay hydrated
  • Snack on raw, crunchy fruits and veggies
  • Visit your dentist every six months for a cleaning and checkup
