Having Nice Breath This Holiday Season

Posted on 12/20/2016 by Downtown Dental Care Office

During the holidays, having nice breath is a must if you attend any type of gathering. You don't want to walk up to grandma and have such rotten breath that she turns away from a hug.

Instead, make sure that you have taken the time to get the best breath you can before you show up to a family gathering, or one for work for that matter.

Freshen Your Breath Naturally

The first way you can keep your breath is to go to the dentist. Have a thorough cleaning done and get any cavities filled before the festivities begin. This can rid your mouth of a lot of bacteria and keep your mouth, and the rest of your body, healthier.

The second way to keep your breath pleasant is to avoid foods that cause bad breath. Eating onions and garlic right before an event is always a bad idea, unless you want to be left alone the entire time.

Finally, if you want to keep your breath nice and fresh, make sure that you eat foods that can help keep your mouth healthy and nice smelling. This should include chewing on mint leaves or even eating a parsley leaf.

You can eat a lot of citrus foods, but this runs the risk of adding acid to your mouth, which can damage your teeth, so should only be done in moderation. You can also make sure to keep xylitol gum in your pocket, and chew a piece right before you go into an event for an extra burst of freshness.

Taking care of your mouth the right way is the best option when it comes to keeping your breath fresh. Brush, floss, and see your dentist like you are supposed to, and see how quickly your breath falls into the pleasant category!

Please contact us if you have any questions about your breath.
