Bad Breath Could Ruin The Chance for Romance.

It’s time to celebrate love with Valentine’s Day falling like a lovesick teenager right in the middle of the month. When it comes to romance, oral health becomes all-important. Someone who might have been less than diligent with his or her oral hygiene may now be interested in a certain someone special. Suddenly clean teeth, a fresh smelling mouth and breath becomes a top priority if they want to get close enough for a kiss.

Bad breath, or halitosis is generally a temporary condition caused from eating or drinking a certain food or beverage. Onion and garlic are famous for their unpleasant odors lingering in the system and on the breath. Most people tend to avoid consuming either of these before going on a romantic date.

In some situations bad breath can be a chronic condition that indicates other factors could be at play. For instance it could be due to digestive problems, dry mouth caused by medications and/or aging, breathing through the mouth, a diet high in refined carbohydrates, enlarged or infected tonsils, adenoids or sinuses. Chronic bad breath could also indicate untreated oral infections and of course, poor oral hygiene.

With simple bad breath a few tips can help to keep your breath fresh between professional dental visits.

-Brushing 2-3x day

-Brush the roof of your mouth and scrape the tongue

-Floss at least once a day

-Replace your toothbrush every 2-3 months

-Use saliva-producing sugarless gum or candies

-Drink water or plain tea throughout the day

-See your dentist for professional cleaning a minimum of
twice a year, regular visits are the best defense
against bad breath

If bad breath continues after using these tips consistently, speak with your dentist or physician. And, if it’s romance you’re looking for you’re in a better position to find it with a fresh clean mouth and a brilliant smile.
