Everyone hates bad breath, but – like going into debt or falling in love – it happens to us all now and then. If you experience chronic or even just occasional bad breath, you know it has the power to affect your quality of life. Bad breath makes it more difficult to interact with others, and it makes you less likely to want to smile. It can also negatively impact your self-image.
Luckily, our team at White Glo has developed a variety of products that offer six points of protection – including fresher breath – so you can enjoy your smile once again.
What causes bad breath and teeth?
While there are many reasons you might experience a case of bad breath, one of the most common (and the easiest to fix) is bad oral hygiene. Failing to take care of your teeth and gums can cause plaque to build up, accounting for the bad smell in your mouth.
Other causes of bad breath can be dry mouth from certain medications, trapped food particles in dental appliances, consumption of foods such as onion or garlic, certain diets such as the keto diet, or even more serious causes such as gum disease, infection, kidney problems, or tonsillitis.
How to fix bad breath
Most of the time, the fastest way to get rid of bad breath is to replace your oral care routine with something more effective. Here are some tips to help you take care of bad breath and teeth quickly and easily:
- Adopt basic oral hygiene principles. Brush twice a day for at least two minutes and floss once daily. Spend time on all your teeth and don’t forget to brush your tongue. At White Glo, we have a comprehensive range of the products you need for at-home oral care.
- Drink plenty of water. Dry mouth can cause increased bacteria buildup, so keep your spit glands active by drinking lots of water throughout the day and chewing sugarless gum after meals.
- Adjust your diet. Starchy, sugary, and sticky foods are more likely to linger in your mouth and provide a breeding ground for bacteria. Onions and garlic can cause lingering smells that won’t disappear with just a quick brush. Try adjusting your diet or introduce odour-controlling foods such as parsley, yoghurt, fennel, orange, and green tea to combat bad breath and teeth.
- Use quality toothpaste and mouthwash. Mouthwash and toothpaste help kill bacteria on your teeth. Some products such as our charcoal mouthwash are specifically designed to target and eliminate bad breath.
