Bad breath can make you feel captive with your smile. Having bad breath could be hard for many in their personal life and professional life, too. That is why our team here at Canyon Dental Care in Farmington, New Mexico, is happy to give you tips on how to free your smile from halitosis, so you can feel radiant with your smile.

When it comes to consistently bad breath the question starts with how do you treat it? The answer is there are many different ways to treat bad breath, which include:

– Use mouthwash every single day. Mouthwash can kill bacteria in your smile that is causing the bad breath.
 
– Brush and floss your teeth like clockwork. Having a proper oral health routine is the key to success in having positive oral health.
 
– Keep your saliva coming. If you chew on sugarless gum or choose to chew on foods like apples that require a lot of chewing, you are flushing bad bacteria from your mouth and could help rid your mouth of bad breath.
 
– Clean up your tongue. Your tongue can store bacteria that causes your bad breath.
 
– Quit smoking. If you rid yourself from this terminal habit, not only will you have better breath, but your overall health and quality of life will increase.
 
– Visit your dentist regularly. By keeping up with your semi-annual appointment with your dentist, Dr. Ryan Wilson, you could be reducing problems like plaque, tartar, cavities, and other oral health care concerns.
