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. Over time, poor dental care will cause mouth odor. Of course, the foods we eat contribute to bad breath, too. However, bad breath may be a symptom of a health condition or a side effect of a medication.
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.
