A smelly mouth can affect anyone who does not carefully follow an oral hygiene routine. There are four steps that we should take on a daily basis to make sure that our mouth remains in tip top condition. If you do not already have one, you should probably buy a metal tongue scraper. This is a cheap and simple tool to use. When you consider the positive health benefits and how it can keep your breath smelling fresh it becomes priceless.
Did you know that most of the bacteria that causes bad breath actually lives on your tongue? So if you have a bad breath problem, brushing your teeth is of course necessary but this will not necessarily get rid of the bad breath.
Here are the steps that you will want to follow to ensure you have a clean, healthy and non-stinky breath. First of all, as I just mentioned, brushing your teeth is the first step. This keeps our teeth clean and free from plaque and dental caries. Then to make sure that the gaps between our teeth remain in good condition we should floss with dental floss or dental tape at least once a day. After this is a good time to use our tongue scraper. Metal ones are better than plastic tongue scrapers because they last longer, do not begin to smell and are kinder to our tongues.
All you have to do with the tongue scraper is pull it across your tongue from back to front. Be careful you do not make yourself gag. After you have used it for a little while, you wonder how you could ever have done without a tongue scraper. They make your breath smell better and you can enjoy food more too.
Finally rise your mouth out with a good mouthwash and you can be confident that you will not have bad breath.
