Yikes – we’ve all been there…frantically digging through our bag to find a breath mint or bothering the nearest person for a piece of gum. Bad breath is no joke and it happens to all of us. Follow these three solutions from Plackers® so you’re never left doubting the freshness of your smile:

  1. Don’t stray from your oral health regimen. Brushing and flossing twice a day and between meals can seem tedious at times, but don’t allow yourself to get lax on your routine. Gunk in your teeth and gums, like plaque or tartar, is one of the biggest culprits of bad breath. Brushing and flossing is the only way to get rid of it. Keeping a bag of Plackers® near you can act as a friendly reminder to floss throughout the day.
  2. Take care of yourself. Self-care can go a long way when it comes to caring for your smile and preventing bad breath. Difficult habits such as smoking or eating junk food can prevent you from achieving the clean, confident smile you’re seeking. Instead of indulging in sugary snacks, try out foods like apples or carrots, which are said to be “natures toothbrush” as they clean away loose bacteria particles.
  3. Schedule regular dentist visits. Trust us – going to the dentist is a great thing and we don’t want you to think otherwise. All “scaries” aside, your dentist can provide great value in regular teeth cleanings and advise on any oral health issues such as bad breath.
