How your breath smells says a lot about you, in a negative way. Follow these steps to avoid being that person who people avoid.
Brush your teeth regularly. Minimum twice a day at morning and night. Make sure not to be rough, but the point of brushing is to physically remove old food and bacteria. You might brush more, like after a smelly meal, but try to avoid brushing after eating sugar. Sugar softens your teeth and you’ll be scraping at the protective layer of enamel.
Floss every day at night. Worst is to have a chunk of food getting old in your mouth overnight. You can floss after each meal and it’s ok.
Mouthwash when you can. This is a great idea for a meeting or class where you will be working closely with others.
Gum, easiest way to freshen breath in a short amount of time. Try the sugar-free kinda and make sure to throw away in a garbage can before it makes your jaw sore. Avoid the bubble bum style. More on Gum later.
Mints/Sweets, avoid whenever possible. They do more bad than good. You might have good breath, but no teeth.
