Are you interested in keeping bad breath at bay? If so, you’re not alone. Many people fight their bad breath by brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and rinsing daily. These are great first steps in preventing bad breath. Little did you know, our dentist, Dr. Benjamin Johnson, has little dental secrets that you can use in addition to brushing, flossing, and rinsing to keep bad breath at bay. Those secrets are:

-Choose your toothpaste wisely: Toothpaste is a great tool that can help you prevent bad breath, especially if you use the right toothpaste. For a pristine breath, it’s best to use toothpaste that has a mint flavor or toothpaste that has the freshening power of mouthwash.

-Use a tongue scraper: Little did you know, your tongue has tiny crevices that bacteria like to hide in and cause bad breath. Fortunately, using a tongue scraper throughout the day can clean those areas and give you the fresh breath you want.

-Drink more water: Having a dry mouth can promote bad breath. So, try to keep your mouth moist and stay hydrated throughout the day by sipping on water regularly.
