Don’t Opt For A Mint
It is true that mints make your breath seem fresh for a moment or two after they are ingested. No one is arguing with that. The issue is that mints are loaded with sugar. Once the mint has dissolved in your mouth, all that stays behind is a sugary residue that actually feeds the bacteria that has been contributing to your problems all along.
Do Get Excited About Your Hygiene Routine
Brushing and rinsing with mouthwash is a good place to start. Do that twice a day. But don’t forget that flossing is also an essential component of all this. You should be flossing twice a day or more to drive bacteria out from the hard-to-get areas in-between your teeth. That is often where the bad breath stems from. This practice wil also be good for your teeth and gums, as you will see.
Drink Lots Of Water
Water is so good for your body and a great thing to do in order to ward off bad breath. Here’s the secret: saliva naturally eliminates bacteria in your mouth that is causing the bad breath. In order for saliva to be produced, you need to drink enough water. If you can find water with fluoride that is even better!
