Poor oral hygiene ‘can cause bad breath’


Poor oral hygiene 'can cause bad breath'People who suffer from bad breath have been advised by one expert to clean their teeth after eating and increase their fluid intake.

Dr Nabin Basnet explained bad breath is most common after a night’s sleep due to the saliva flow slowing down as people rest, Republica reports.

He recommended consuming regular fluids that help dispel the scent by washing the mouth out and removing any plaque, which if allowed to build up may lead to the need for emergency dentistry.

Additionally a foul-smelling odour can be the result of inadequate teeth cleaning, in which case it was recommended individuals ensure they scrub around their teeth and gums thoroughly.

The dentist suggested brushing teeth after eating as bacteria can develop within ten to 15 minutes of consuming food and begin to cause damage, he said.

Snacking throughout the day was recently suggested by Dr Philippa Sawyer, chairwoman of the Australian Dental Association, to be a contributing factor in why tooth decay appears to be becoming more prevalent, the Herald Sun reported.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19867515-ADNFCR

Flossing ‘should be done once a day’


Flossing 'should be done once a day'Failure to floss teeth can lead to 40 per cent of the tooth surface not being cleaned, according to experts.

Writing for Online Athens, Dr Mehmet Oz and Dr Mike Roizen explained that oral hygiene is vital and flossing is a key part of it.

They described how people should clean their teeth twice a day with a toothbrush, ensuring they scrub the gum line and over the tongue as well as the surfaces and biting edges.

It is important this is done for a minimum of two minutes at the end of each day, the specialists stated and that combined with this individuals should also floss.

Cleaning between the teeth should be carried out once a day at least and it is vital all areas of the mouth are covered to prevent the buildup of bacteria and decay, Dr Oz and Dr Roizen warned.

IBT Health recently claimed that flossing could help reduce bad breath as well as tooth decay and suggested people have regular dental check-ups to prevent problems.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19865800-ADNFCR

Dentists ‘help fix bad breath’


Bad breath is a problem that dentists could help solve.

Dental professionals could help people tackle any problems they have with halitosis, it has been claimed.

US dentist Dr Joel Miller of Aesthetic Dentistry of Valencia told his local publication that there are a number of options available to help address this issue, including a number of mouth washes, as it can be a touchy issue for many.

Dr Miller told Homestation News: “Sometimes their spouse or boyfriend or girlfriend will push them to take are of it.”

However, he noted that there is no replacement for having a regular oral health routine in place to ensure any food debris is removed from the mouth daily.

Elsewhere, Irwin Smigel, creator of Supersmile, recently told the Daily Beauty Reporter blog from Allure that some of the most important ways to keep teeth healthy and bright are to brush regularly and to consume the recommended eight glasses of water every day.
