Do you remember your first kiss? There are lots of people who do. We don’t want to hear about any of the details, save for one. Do you remember what they’re breath was like? If it was suspect, you’d know right off the bat. Bad breath can kill any romantic moment. If your first kiss was plagued by someone with breath that could knock over a cow, find solace in the fact that bad breath can be cured and kisses from here on out should leave you feeling happy.
We’re obsessed with having fresh breath. The next time you get gas, go to the grocery store, or just walk into a small convenience store, take a look at their gum selection. Chances are there’s a significant selection you can choose from. While gum or mints are great for masking bad breath temporarily, it all starts with how well you’re practicing good dental hygiene at home. Bad breath doesn’t just pop up out of nowhere, it’s the result of certain things going on inside of your mouth. Our office in Melbourne, FL wants you to know that fresh breath can be attained. All it takes is good dental hygiene on your part to smell the results. Dr. Ronald Richardson is the dentist Melbourne, FL residents can count on to get their breath smelling great.
Hit Bad Breath Where It Hurts Most with General Dentistry – Brushing and Flossing
You know that taste you have in your mouth when you first wake up in the morning? It’s usually a pretty disgusting taste, especially if you skipped the normal brushing and flossing routine the night before. Most of what you’re smelling is from what you ate the night before. Tiny, almost microscopic food particles and other bacteria become lodged between your teeth and are left to rot if they aren’t removed. Flossing and brushing can help with this problem as well as keep teeth as clean as possible.
There are other ways to help keep your breath smelling fresh. Here are a few friendly tips from us to you:
- Brush and floss your teeth daily…TWICE
- Gargling peroxide can help keep halitosis at bay
- Fluoride mouth rinses can make your breath sweeter with repeated use
- Start drinking a lot of water
- If you have an upset stomach, it could be giving your breath fits
- Keep an eye on your sinuses
- Snack on yogurt
- Chewing gum with Xylitol can keep your mouth cool and fresh
- See us if you can’t solve the problem
These are just a few ways to help keep your breath smelling great. Bad breath can have a negative impact on your relationships, both personal and at work. Impress others with your fresh-smelling breath!
