Did you know, you can overcome your bad breath? It’s true! Bad breath has many causes and factors, but it’s important to discover the source so you know if there is a serious problem you need to know about. That is why our team here at Christopherson Family Dentistry in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, is happy to talk to you about how to overcome your bad breath.

The most important thing you can do to overcome your bad breath is to visit your oral health professional, Dr. Tyler Christopherson. This is because one of the most common sources of bad breath are warning signs that gum disease has occupied your smile. That is why it’s vital to get properly looked at, so you can reverse this condition and get your smile healthy and your breath fresh.

Brushing twice a day and flossing between your teeth daily will help rid your smile of bacteria that causes bad breath. It is also important to remember to take care of your tongue when you clean your teeth. Bacteria could stick to your tongue, making it hard to keep your breath fresh and clear. Mouthwash can be used to help clear your mouth of any bacteria your brush or floss can’t reach. Mouthwash is a great idea to use before bed, especially if you use one with cavity-fighting power.

Remember, it is important to always drink plenty of water to keep saliva in your mouth flowing to clear away bacteria throughout your day.
