Pop a mint and smile on Fresh Breath Day observed annually on August 6th. The day urges appreciation of oral hygiene and its importance. Dentists and oral care professionals applaud the day dedicated to fighting bad breath.
Oral hygiene and the fresh breath associated with it are part of healthy, daily habits. Bad odor is such a turn-off and persistent bad breath can indicate health issues, lack of sufficient water intake, or a side effect of a medicine. It’s vital to understand that certain foods cause bad breath such as Tomato sauce, cheese & dairy products, garlic, and peanut butter. If you want to freshen your breath then avoid these products.
There are ways to combat bad breath.
- Brush after meals.
- Floss before bedtime.
- Gargle and rinse with mouthwash regularly.
- Chew sugar-free gum to keep the mouth moist.
- Stay hydrated.
- Seek regular dental care.
The best way to celebrate Fresh Breath Day is by visiting a dentist, chewing on a gum ( sugar free if you’re diabetic ) and brush your teeth shiny white!
