We all know how embarrassing it can be to have smelly breath during the day, but did you know that there are many things you can do to avoid these clenching moments? Well, it’s true! There are many ways you can combat bad breath, and our Paul L. Evans, DDS team is happy to give you three of those tips. To keep your breath in tip-top shape, we recommend using the following tools:

Toothbrush and toothpaste
If you keep a toothbrush and toothpaste with you at all times, it’s easy to brush your teeth and tongue whenever you suffer from bad breath. Do your best to brush your teeth after each meal and snack. This will help you clean the stinky bacteria and germs from your oral cavity. Don’t forget to scrub your tongue when you are done cleaning your smile.

Tongue scraper
Tongue scrapers are small, handy tools that you can carry with you at all times. The scraper simply glides along the surface of your tongue and removes the sticky film and bacteria that are giving you the bad breath. So, one solid sweep of the scraper will help you return to a fresh and pristine breath.

Sugarless gum
We all know that gum can correct bad breath, but did you know that sugary gum can also cause tooth decay? Well, it’s true, which is why it’s recommended to freshen your breath with sugar-free gum when you can.
