It's easy to improve your breath and keep your teeth and gums healthy at the same time. Try these simple tips to make your mouth feel fresh and clean.



Not all bacteria are bad; in fact, some are even necessary to maintain hygienic balance. There are some bacteria, however, that we'd rather do without since they cause tooth decay and gum disease


Harmful bacteria

While some of the bacteria in our mouths are harmful and can cause serious illness, much of our oral bacteria are actually beneficial in preventing disease. Streptococci make up a large part of oral bacteria. According to Dr. Robert Gandola, a dentist, "A number of bacteria can cause decay [and many] are suspected in periodontal (gum) disease."

Bad breath

Bad breath, also called halitosis, can be embarrassing and in some cases may even cause anxiety. It can result from poor dental health habits and may be a sign of other health problems.

Bad breath odors

Bad breath odors vary, depending on the source or the underlying cause. Some people worry too much about their breath even though they have little or no mouth odor, while others have bad breath and don't know it.


Why Do Poor Habits Cause Bad Breath?

If you don't brush and floss teeth daily, food particles can remain in your mouth, promoting bacterial growth between teeth, around the gums, and on the tongue. This causes bad breath.
