Bacteria Making A Home In Your Mouth? Top 3 Ways To Evict Bacteria And Other Harmful Germs And Send Them Packing For Good.
Nothing is worse than going through your entire morning hygiene routine (brushing, flossing, etc.), only to realize in the middle of the day that you still have bad breath.
Whether you’ve just eaten something with a strong odor (onions, garlic, etc.) or just have a generally bad-smelling mouth, bad breath can affect you in critical social situations or keep you from feeling good about yourself.
Bad breath is caused by bacteria that give off a foul smell. Getting rid of food particles and the bacteria that breed on those food particles, then, is your main obstacle in fighting bad breath.
Sometimes, extremely bad breath can be indicative of more serious dental or overall health problems. Various lung or stomach conditions can cause bad breath, some of which can be quite serious if not treated.
Other times, the health of a tooth might be the main factor, something which we at The Smile Design Center can help you maintain. We offer a variety of cosmetic and implant dentist work, and can guarantee satisfaction.
If, however, it’s just a matter of cleaning your teeth better and more thoroughly, here are the top 3 ways to clean and maintain your teeth:
- Nothing can replace brushing and flossing consistently throughout the day. Killing bacteria will just remedy the problem temporarily. You have to ensure food particles aren’t hanging around your mouth.
- Drink plenty of water, and avoid drinks and foods particularly known to cause bad breath, such as soda, coffee, alcohol, garlic and onions.
- Keep your toothbrush clean using an alcohol solution or hydrogen peroxide. If your brush isn’t clean, then it is only brining more harmful bacteria into your mouth during brushings.
