Working in any sort of professional environment requires that you look – and smell – your best. Part of that is ensuring that you don’t have bad breath that can leave a less-than-ideal first impression.

If you have problems with bad breath, our staff here at Chicago Bright Smiles recommends you follow these three tips to keep the bad breath at bay.

Always brush
One of the leading causes of bad breath that doesn’t go away is not brushing on a regular basis. Taking care of your pearly whites by consistently removing plaque and other debris from your mouth is a surefire way to ensure that you get the best breath possible.

Avoid tonsil stones
If you still have your tonsils, you may occasionally get tonsil stones. These are chunks of food and bacteria that collect in the crevices and folds of your tonsils, and they stink – bad. To avoid getting them, you need to use mouthwash, brush the back of your tongue very well, and make sure you eat a decently healthy diet.

Don’t forget to floss

Flossing is another tip for ensuring that you don’t end up with bad breath that won’t go away Flossing not only removes food particles that can stink up your mouth but prevents cavities as well.

Keep in mind that it’s entirely possible for you to practice all of these habits and still have chronic bad breath. If that’s the case, then you need to see Dr. Sudi Rafieian as soon as possible, as chronic bad breath can be a sign of a different underlying issue.
