Do you wish you could avoid bad breath every chance you could get? If so, our Acre Wood Dental dental team would like to help you increase your chances of doing so! The best way to avoid bad breath is to identify the cause and do everything you can to eliminate it. The common causes of bad breath include:

-Infected gums: One of the most common symptoms of gum disease is a chronic bad breath. So, if your gums are infected with this disease, you’ll suffer from this symptom. The best thing to do is brush and floss regularly and visit your dentist, Dr. Benjamin Johnson, as often as recommended.

-Dirty teeth: Your teeth tend to collect bacteria and food particles that cause bad breath, so make sure to brush and floss your smile regularly. If you can’t brush as often as you would like, try rinsing your mouth with water.

-A foul tongue: Your tongue also tends to harbor odorous bacteria, so you should remember to brush your tongue after you’ve brushed your teeth.

-Skipping meals: Skipping meals can cause bad breath. This is because chewing can produce saliva and saliva washes bad breath particles away. So, make sure to eat each meal and chew gum throughout the day.

-Smoking: Obviously, smoking can cause cigarette breath as well as many other dental issues, so it’s best to avoid this habit altogether.

If you find the cause of your bad breath and use our tips, you’ll be on your way to a clean, fresh, and pristine breath!
