Fresh Breath Tips
To keep your breath fresh, we recommend you
eat a healthy, balanced diet and avoid eating strongly flavoured or spicy food
cut down on sugary food and drink as it can increase the amount of bacteria in your mouth
reduce your alcohol consumption
cut down on coffee
drink plenty of water to help prevent your mouth becoming dry
chew sugar-free gum after eating to stimulate the flow of saliva – this will help clean away any remaining food particles
Clean Teeth Tips
Cleaning between your teeth can help remove trapped food which can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Cleaning between your teeth with floss or interdental brushes can remove any debris
Brush your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste for at least 2 minutes twice daily
Lots of bacteria can grow on your tongue so use a separate toothbrush or tongue scraper to lightly clean your tongue
