Stop bad breath before it happens
The most common cause of bad breath is simply bacteria in the mouth, caused by an inefficient oral care routine.
The most effective way of battling bad breath, and preventing it happening in the first place, is to keep up a regular routine. Brush all areas of your mouth thoroughly, ideally for around two minutes, twice a day; brush or scrape your tongue to remove bacteria, and floss between all of your teeth. It is best to wait at least 30 minutes after eating before brushing, especially if you have eaten anything acidic, such as oranges. The acid weakens your natural enamel and you could damage it further by brushing too soon.
You want to enjoy your food, without being concerned about your breath or trapped food, so keep some sugar-free chewing gum to hand. Chewing gum after a meal will help to subtly dislodge any trapped food, and chewing stimulates saliva that will naturally wash away tiny particles and bacteria.
Visiting your local Maidenhead dentist and hygienist regularly for a professional check up and scale and polish should be part of your dental care plan. It will go a long way in keeping your breath fresh.
