17 Apr Say Goodbye to Bad Breath Forever with These Expert Tips
Have you ever worried that you had bad breath? This blog will give you some tips on what causes this and how to prevent any embarrassing moments.
What causes bad breath?
Bad breath can be caused by bacteria that are not removed efficiently when brushing with your toothbrush. It is important to angle your toothbrush towards the gumline and spend at least 2 minutes brushing. To make bruising your teeth easier and more efficient you can consider an electric toothbrush.
Brushing your teeth efficiently but still experiencing bad breath?
If you are not cleaning in between your teeth, 40% of tooth surfaces are being missed. These are areas where your toothbrush bristles cannot reach, therefore, bacterial plaque will continue to accumulate and cause bad breath. Not all tools are made equally when it comes to cleaning in between your teeth. Interdental brushes are far superior when it comes to removing these harmful bacteria when compared to conventional string floss (read more here).
Brushing effectively and using interdental brushes daily?
It could be that your brushing technique needs tweaking or that you are not using the correct size interdental brush. This is something your dental hygienist will happily assist you with. It could also be that there are some digestive issues occurring in which your GP can help get to the root cause of the problem.
