5 Tips to Have Minty Fresh Breath

Post on August 06, 2017 | SOGO Malaysia
Guess what? 6 August is Fresh Breath Day (yes, it’s true. Go google it!) So we thought we would give you tips on how to achieve fresh breath not just today, but every day! 

1. Watch What You Eat & Drink
You are what you eat..and drink! Garlic and onions are the usual suspects for bad breath. Unless you're planning to scare a vampire away, limit your intake of these foods.



Coffee contains a potent residue that sticks to existing mouth plaque. So coffee lovers, we suggest you switch to green tea for your daily caffeine kick!


2. Fill up on that H2o
We don't have to tell you twice, water is important! In addition to flushing out toxins and hydrating your body, drinking water aids in stimulating saliva glands.

This will cleanse your tongue and teeth from food debris. If drinking water gets a little blasé, mix it up and add sliced lemons or even mint leaves too for that added freshness!

3. Brush Your Teeth Twice A Day

Brushing, flossing and using mouthwash is the holy trinity to fresh breath. Take it a notch higher and consider brushing your teeth after a big meal to ensure pleasant smelling mouth.

4. Clean Your Tongue
You might think that just by brushing your teeth you're good to go! But 80% of the bacteria that causes bad breath are hiding in the tongue, so get to scrubbing! Keep in mind to purchase a toothbrush that's equipped with a tongue scraper on the back of the brushing head to help clean your tongue.


5. Dental Check-ups
Regular dental check-ups are a must! Make sure to schedule appointments twice a year with your dentist to achieve dazzling smile all year round.


So there you have it folks! Follow these steps for minty fresh breath and an enchanting smile!
