Although tooth loss can be extremely scary to some, there are a minor group of individuals, probably hockey fans, who find missing teeth as endearing or liken it to a badge of honor. However, no such views exist for halitosis. Halitosis, commonly called bad breath, can take even the most perfect evening with a loved one and destroy it in an instant. If you’re on a first date, it can be a game breaker and put an end to what otherwise could have been a happily ever after.

Don’t let bad breath ruin your day, and possibly your future too. Listed below are common guidelines everyone should follow:

– Avoid bad breath by always brushing and flossing daily.
– Bad breath may be caused by a more serious condition, such as respiratory tract infections, liver disease, or gum disease. If your bad breath persists, schedule an oral examination with your dentist.
– Keep your teeth and gums clear of plaque buildup and food residue.
– One of the best products for bad breath is a mouthwash or cleanser designed for freshness.
– A dry mouth increases the risk for bad breath. Avoid medications or products that can cause bad breath.
