Prevention Of Bad Breath

Some useful home remedies that may solve your problem are drinking plenty of water and rinsing your mouth often. This has the added benefit of hydrating you, as well as preventing dry mouth. Brushing and flossing your teeth regularly, preferably after every meal is an excellent habit to maintain. Try to replace your toothbrush every two to three months or as needed. Using a tongue scraper to remove bacteria and build up can be beneficial as well.

There are also several commercial remedies to prevent or mask bad breath such as getting regular dental checkups and cleanings with Dr. Jin as well as purchasing toothpaste and mouthwash that include antibacterial agents.
