Happy New Year!
Happy New Year from ProFresh UK, we hope you enjoyed the Christmas break.
Make Oral Health one of your New Years Resolutions
Most people see the New Year as a time to lose weight, start a new career or join the gym. Why not see 2016 as the year you really get on top of your oral health and beat bad breath for good. If we are honest, we might not be doing all we can to combat the bacteria that causes bad breath, our oral routine might slip, or we continue to eat food or consume drinks we know make bad breath worse.
We have put together a few tips to stop bad breath and oral care issues causing you worry or anxiety again.
1 . Tongue Scrape
There is so much bacteria on the back of your tongue and this bacteria feeds on the food you eat and this is what causes bad breath. Scrape away the bacteria with a tongue scraper. For the sake of a minute or two every day you will start to see and feel the huge benefit of this simple hygiene trick.
2. Drink Water
Drinking water doesn’t just hydrate your body, it washes away any particles of food left in your mouth. Having a dry mouth causes bad breath too as the lack of saliva means bacteria can thrive. You can also increase your water intake by eating more fruit and vegetables .
3. Use an alcohol free Mouth Wash
Using a mouth wash with alcohol simply dries the mouth and reduces the amount of bad breath busting bacteria. ProFresh Mouth Wash contains no alcohol, it simply helps gets rid of the bacteria that causes bad breath.
Up there with tongue scraping, ensure you floss between your teeth once a day to get rid of food debris that will break down and rot in your mouth. Either use traditional floss or a super efficient water flosser such as the WaterPik.
5. Stop Smoking
Apart from the obvious damage to your health, smoking makes your teeth yellow and makes your breath smell like an ashtray.
Let ProFresh help you make oral care part of your new healthy routine for 2016.
