Dentist Tips to Prevent/Cure Bad Breath

Did you know that Americans cite bad breath as the least attractive trait a co-worker can have? Studies have shown that 35% of Americans suffer from bad breath. Brushing your teeth isn’t enough to cure bad breath. Check out these unique cures, from Founder & CEO of Arch Dental, Dr. Pankaj Singh, that will leave you feeling better inside and out!

I hope you find these tips as helpful as I have for myself and my family.

*Practice good oral hygiene.
~Brush your teeth  AND tongue after you ea (keep a toothbrush/wisp at work or school to brush after lunch)
~Replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months.
~See your dentist twice a year
~Chew on mint leaves or parsley 


~Eating an orange is a good way to eliminate bad breath instantly. The citric acid present in oranges will help in stimulating the salivary glands and encourage the flow of breath-freshening saliva.
~Eat Yogurt - Studies have shown that the active bacteria in yogurt, specifically Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus, may have a beneficial effect on odor-causing bacteria in the mouth. 
~Drink lots of water. This will keep your mouth moist. 
~Chewing gum (preferably sugarless) or sucking on candy (preferably sugarless) also stimulates the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria.
