Make sure you’re scheduled for at least one dental cleaning every six months, and don’t miss your appointments! Routine cleanings are paramount to your dental health and to remove any build-up that may cause bad breath.

Brush your teeth and tongue at least twice a day! Removing food and plaque from the surface of your teeth and tongue will help prevent plaque and tartar build-up and keep your breath fresh.

Irrigate and floss daily! Flossing and using a water pick are at least as important as brushing because of the food and plaque that build up between your teeth and along your gums. This buildup can be an even more persistent cause of bad breath, so daily cleaning is important.

Make sure your diet is full of healthy foods! Too many sugary drinks and processed foods can help feed the bacteria in your mouth that create plaque. Eating healthier can help keep your mouth (and breath!) healthier, too.

Chew sugar-free gum sweetened with xylitol! Xylitol helps eliminate the bacteria that create plaque. Daily use of xylitol will help prevent plaque build-up and keep your breath minty-fresh!
