Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 06, 2016
According to a November 1 article published on Bustle, there are a number of surprising habits, such as consuming too many mints or not drinking enough water, which can cause bad breath (known medically as halitosis). Dr. Farzad Feiz of Calabasas Dental Group and California Dental Care notes that good oral hygiene not only helps reduce the possibility of bad breath, but it can provide individuals with a number of health and wellness benefits. Individuals can improve their oral health by incorporating a number of important good dental hygiene habits into their daily routine, such as:
Daily Brushing - Oftentimes, bad breath can be caused by a lack in brushing, especially after eating or drinking. The Calabasas Dental Group and California Dental Care notes that by brushing for the recommended two minutes on a twice daily basis, individuals can eliminate much of the bad breath causing bacteria. The Southern California based dentist also notes that by replacing toothbrushes every three months, individuals can also help to maintain their overall dental health. Moreover, routine brushing can also reduce the risk of tooth decay and other dental conditions associated with a buildup in plaque.
Flossing - Dr. Farzad Feiz notes that, as the Bustle article points out, flossing can eliminate remaining plaque and food that can get lodged in hard to reach areas in between the teeth. Additionally, removing any extra plaque can also eliminate bacteria that can cause bad breath. Although flossing can be helpful in removing hard to reach food particles, individuals can also rely on a highly skilled dental professional to perform more thorough cleanings for optimum oral health
Quit Smoking - Smoking cigarettes can cause extensive damage to the lungs, but also to an individual’s teeth and gums. The Southern California based dentist notes that tobacco use can irritate the gums and lead to periodontitis (gum disease) which also causes bad breath. Individuals who quit smoking cigarettes can reduce their chances of gum disease and a number of other dental conditions that can lead to nasty cases of halitosis.
Dr. Farzad Feiz of Calabasas Dental Group and California Dental Care concludes by noting that by eliminating bad habits and replacing them with outstanding oral hygiene practices, patients can significantly reduce their risk of bad breath as well as a variety of other dental complications.
