An effective daily oral care routine will help prevent bad breath.
  • Brush correctly twice a day for at least two minutes each time. Use an egg-timer, stopwatch or the Philips Sonicare powerbrush, which has a a built-in timer, to make sure you brush for the required time. Hold the toothbrush at a 45 degree angle to clean gently under the gum line. Don’t brush too hard as this can damage gums. Use a soft, small toothbrush and replace it at least every three months.
  • Clean in-between the teeth. It is essential to remove plaque where brushing does not reach, as this is where bad breath can start.
  • Clean your tongue. Professor Mel Rosenberg says the back of the tongue is the most frequently overlooked source of bad breath. “In about seven out of ten cases halitosis is caused by bacteria breaking down postnasal drip, food debris and cells accumulated on the tongue. The back of the tongue provides ideal conditions for the bacteria that cause bad breath to thrive after. He recommends using a tongue scraper to gently sweep the mucus and debris away.
  • Get professional. Visit the oral hygienist every 6 months.
Other tips to help maintain fresh breath:
  • Eat a wholesome breakfast in the morning
  • Chew sugar-free gum after meals or when the mouth is dry to stimulate saliva flow
  • Drink plenty of water to maintain good hydration
