Unlike caries or tooth loss, bad breath can get a person’s attention as soon as you open your mouth to talk.

But this is not something that you should be ashamed to tell your dentist about. The sooner you find out the cause of your persistent bad breath, the better. Next your dentist in Turkey will determine the cause and recommend the best treatment plan for your condition.

1- Daily flossing: Most people are used to brushing their teeth every day. Jul: Some people brush their teeth three times a day to make sure their teeth stay clean and their breath smells good. But we must not forget about the importance of flossing. Flossing removes food particles stuck between teeth that your toothbrush cannot decontaminate or reach. If food residues remain on your teeth, they feed on bacteria and cause bad breath.

2- Clean your tongue: Use a tongue scraper. The tongue scraper removes the residue that accumulates between the taste buds and decollete folds on your tongue. If you do not have this tool, you can sweep your tongue from back to front with your toothbrush.

3- Eat carrots, celery or apples: Eating such foods effectively eliminates bad breath. Fresh fruits and vegetables promote increased saliva flow to remove bacteria from your mouth that can cause bad breath. In addition, eating these healthy foods helps reduce bad breath caused by hunger or fasting.

4- Drink more water: If you are thirsty, drink a glass of water instead of sweet, carbonated drinks . Water is good for both your oral health and your overall health. Water helps to keep unpleasant odors under control to reduce the concentration of food particles and bad mouth bacteria, which are the two most common causes of bad breath.

5- Change your toothbrush: Toothbrushes play an important role in ensuring that you have a healthy and fresh breath, and toothbrushes should be changed every 3-4 months. Otherwise, you can not do it in an effective scrub.

Having a bad breath does not necessarily mean that you have bad oral hygiene. Other causes include gum disease and serious diseases such as dry mouth, diabetes, lung infections, kidney, liver failure, and stomach problems. Your mouth is the window of your body, so if you notice a persistent odor in your mouth, you should make an appointment with your Turkey dentist for a thorough examination.
