Are you looking to rid yourself of bad breath? If so, we have exciting news for you! Dr. Corey I. Johnson DDS is here to help you learn how to rid your smile of persistent bad breath that could be affecting your daily life.

Halitosis, also known as bad breath, can have many different causes such as gum disease, foods and drinks, cavities, and more that can put a cloud on anyone’s day. If a simple breath mint will not do the trick to relieve your bad breath, the first thing to do is call your dentist. Your dentist will be able to give you a detailed cleaning of your teeth and gums to help rinse bacteria away. Although, there are things you can do on your own to help resolve your bad breath.

If you truly want to rid yourself of bad breath, then remember to brush and floss your teeth regularly. The appropriate time to brush your teeth is for two minutes a day, twice a day. This will help keep the reeking bacteria and food particle away from your teeth and gums, keeping your smile clear. Using mouthwash can also be helpful for killing bacteria. Sugarless gum is also a useful tooth because it helps your saliva keep flowing washing bacteria away from your teeth.

Johnson in Glenwood Springs, CO today at 970-945-9119 to set up a dental cleaning. Our friendly team is always happy to take your call and provide you with a clean smile you can feel great about.
