As you loathe your smelly breath throughout the day, it’s time to think about the ways you can finally fight it and change it from being stinky to being fresh and pristine. There are many things you can do to improve the odor escaping your oral cavity, including:

Brush your teeth
Keep a toothbrush and toothpaste with you at all times. You can keep them in your purse, backpack, car, or even your office desk. If you have these oral hygiene tools with you 24/7, the chances that you’ll clean your smile regularly will increase. So, do your best to brush your teeth after every meal and snack. You can also carry floss with you to eliminate the food particles between your teeth that may be causing the bad breath.

Use a tongue scraper
Your tongue is a muscle that can harbor bacteria and germs, which could easily cause your bad breath. But, with the help of a tongue scraper, your tongue will remain clean and fresh on a regular basis. All you need to do is gently scrape the tool across the tongue and remove the particles that reside there.

Chew sugarless gum
Chewing gum is an easy and successful way to prevent and fight bad breath. However, many people chew sugary gum, which can promote tooth decay. So, for a successful oral health as well as a fresh and pristine breath, we recommend chewing sugarless gum when you need to eliminate an oral odor.
