    Millions of people suffer from bad breath. In most cases, this problem stems from the tongue and gums. Bad breath can cause you to feel embarrassed, but it is a more common problem than you think. We are here to give you some tips about how to prevent bad breath. We want you to feel confident!

    1. Make sure you are brushing.

    It is imperative to make sure you are brushing your teeth at least twice a day! You should brush in the morning when you wake up, and at night time before you go to bed. By doing this, you are ensuring the proper removal of plaque and debris stuck in your teeth. Getting rid of the yucky stuff will make it difficult for bacteria to grow in your mouth, which would eliminate bad breath.

    1. Floss daily.

    Flossing on a daily basis will remove the debris that your toothbrush can’t reach. Now, the toothbrush does a great job, but sometimes it just needs some extra help with floss. Flossing gets into the deeper parts of your smile, allowing you to remove all leftover debris.

    1. Don’t forget the tongue.

    Most people brush their teeth and think they are done. However, your teeth are only one part of your mouth. Scraping or brushing your tongue will remove any built-up residue that is hiding in the taste buds. Don’t forget to brush your tongue!

    1. Rinse your mouth.

    Remember that if a dental issue is a reason for constant bad breath, a mouth wash will just cover the smell and not fix it. However, it does help to use a mouth wash when completing your oral hygiene routine. Mouth wash gives you an instant fresh breath smell!

    1. Visit your dentist.

    You need to be visiting your dentist twice a year to maintain good oral health. When dealing with chronic bad breath, you should visit your dentist first to rule out any other dental issues. It is better to catch things early! Give us a call at (215) 568-6222 to schedule your FREE new patient consultation.

    It’s a brand-new year, which is the perfect time to reinvent yourself. Do you want to quit your bad smoking habit? If this sounds like you, then keep reading. In this article, we will be talking about dental hygiene tips for smokers that can help you turn your smoker’s teeth into healthy teeth!

    1. Stop smoking

    It might not be exactly what you want to hear, but this is something you need to do in order to get the best results for your teeth. Smoking causes a number of health problems, but a lot of time the effects it can have on your mouth are overlooked. When you are a smoker, you are twice as likely to get mouth infections compared to non-smokers. Additionally, as you know, smoking causes damage to your enamel and staining.

    1. See your dentist

    It is imperative for you to stay on top of your dental visits. Since being a smoker makes you more susceptible to oral health issues, you need to keep up with your bi-yearly dental visits. These visits are important because it will allow your dentist to scope out any issues earlier rather than later. These visits will also help possible staining and keeping your breath fresh.

    1. Brushing and flossing twice a day

    Brush and floss your teeth when you wake up in the morning and again before you go to sleep at night. By doing this, you are removing any debris that could wedge itself in your teeth throughout the day. Brushing and flossing at least twice a day is the rule of thumb, but if you can squeeze in brush and floss time after any meal, that would be ideal!

    1. Healthy eating

    Smoking isn’t the only thing that causes staining. Different foods and drinks cause teeth discoloration as well. To reduce the chance of staining, take up a healthy eating lifestyle. Eat and drink in moderation, but watch out for acidic treats like coffee, soda, and candy, as they can do the most damage.

    We want you to make 2021 the year you turn your smoker teeth into a brighter, healthier smile! Here at Philadelphia Dentistry, we will provide you with the best care and education to ensure that you optimize your oral health care. Check us out on social media to see all of our photos!
