If you are interested in fighting your bad breath, then we have exciting news for you! Our team here at Kingston Family Dental in Kingston, New Hampshire, cares about your oral health, which is why we have provided you this basic insight on how to fight your bad breath, also known as halitosis.

Halitosis is a condition that keeps bacteria in your mouth that could be causing your bad breath. There are many triggers for halitosis, however the best way to fight it is to talk to Dr. Vera Matshkalyan. Your dentist will be able to give you more information and determine if gum disease is the culprit of your bad breath. If not, there are other things you can do to fight it.

Brushing every day for twice a day, while flossing every night are key factors in fighting bad breath. Using a mouthwash to fight the rest of the bacteria can also be effective at clearing your mouth of bad breath. Sometimes, bacteria can stick to your tongue, so be sure to scrape and wash your tongue off, to keep bacteria from spreading.

The most important thing to remember is to visit your dentist regularly. Regular dental checkups are vital to your oral health.
