Having bad breath is one of my worst nightmares. I always worry that when I am taking to people that they are thinking about how bad my breath smells. Not fun! I have been researching ways to make sure I have fresh breath at all times. Here is how to keep bad breath at bay!

– brush your tongue, teeth and gums in the morning and night48bd888e81d711e28d7822000a1fa48d_7-550x550

– Floss when you wake up and when you go to sleep

– Chew sugarless gum for five minutes after eating to bring saliva flow back to normal

– Eat crunchy foods like apples or carrots after your meal to scrape plaque off your teeth.

– Avoid eating lots of sugary foods, because this causes buildup on your teeth

– Eat set meals and avoid constant snacking, because this can also cause plaque build up

I always keep a pack of sugar free gum with me at all times, just in case I come down with some dragon breath. You especially want to keep your breath fresh on dates and in job interviews! Having good breath can go a long way, I am sure I don’t have to tell you twice!
