Building a better smile routinely consists of making the right decisions, both with your cleaning habits and your day-to-day choices. You will need to inspect your oral health as well as overall healthcare habits and make adjustments as necessary. This often includes honing your skills to provide better oral health care. Not only do you need to make sure you are routinely cleaning your mouth effectively but also limiting unhealthy choices in your life.

Bad breath is often the result of poor oral hygiene or unhealthy lifestyle habits. If your teeth are not diligently cleaned, you are at a higher risk for bacteria that produce bad breath. Furthermore, your tongue is also a safe zone for bad breath. This, it is important to always make sure you clean your tongue as well. To accomplish this, brush twice daily and floss once daily to clean all areas in your mouth. A supplemental cleaning treatment that is also helpful for killing bacteria responsible for bad breath is therapeutic mouthwash.

If you are involved in unhealthy habits such as smoking or chewing tobacco, you may be at an increased risk for bad breath. We recommend eliminating these risks from your life as soon as possible. For additional help with treating bad breath or any other conditions with your smile, we invite you to visit our dentist for routine checkups and professional cleanings.
