Has your breath gotten bad? Try these simple ideas that can be your cure for bad breath.

  1. Have Healthy Gums

Gum disease is a common cause of bad breath. To protect the health of your gums, you must practice good dental care habits at home and see a dentist in Atlanta for regular check-ups and cleanings.

  1. Go for Good Oral Hygiene

When you don’t take care of your teeth, bacteria starts to build up on them and causes bad breath. To prevent this problem, affordable dentistry experts advise brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Ask your dental clinic to show you the best techniques.

  1. Rinse on a Regular Basis

Use an anti-bacterial mouthwash every day to fight the bacteria that cause bad breath.

  1. Clean your Tongue

To keep from developing a white coating of odorous bacteria on your tongue, clean it with a tongue scraper after you brush your teeth. A dentist in Atlanta can tell you where to find these scrapers near you.

  1. Stop Smoking

In addition to causing many kinds of cancer, smoking can stain your teeth, harm your gums, and cause bad breath. Ask your dental clinic for suggestions on stopping the habit.

  1. Omit Odorous Foods

Foods like onions and garlic can leave their mark on your breath. According to dental care experts, brushing after eating them won’t take the smell away because the odors travel into your bloodstream and lungs, so you naturally breathe them out. So, when it comes to odorous foods, the best cure for bad breath is to try to avoid eating them.

  1. Choose to Chew Sugarless Gum

Chewing makes your mouth produce saliva, which rinses away the bacteria that cause decay and bad breath. Choose sugarless gum and pop a piece after meals.

  1. Discuss with your Doctor

If you continue to have bad breath after trying these dental care tactics, affordable dentistry specialists say you should go see your doctor to learn if your bad breath is being caused by a medical problem.
