3 Ways to Freshen Your Breath on the Go


Posted on 11/10/2018 by Mark Bieber
3 Ways to Freshen Your Breath on the GoBad breath doesn't usually happen at a time that is convenient. In fact, it often arises while you are away from home. Whether you're traveling or are about to have an important business meeting, when you need to freshen your breath on the go, you'll want to keep these tips in mind.

Chew Sugar-Free Gum

Sugar-free gum contains Xylitol, which is can help to freshen your breath in several ways. First, it will stimulate the production of saliva, which can help wash away plaque and odor-causing bacteria from the teeth.

Secondly, Xylitol is known to inhibit the production of bacteria, which can further freshen your breath. Sugar-free gum may also come in a variety of flavors, allowing your mouth to taste minty fresh.

Rinse Out Your Mouth with Water

If you don't have access to a toothbrush and toothpaste, you can still help to clean it by simply rinsing your mouth out with water. This action will rinse food particles off of the teeth and can help to restore the pH value of the mouth. You may also fight decay and gum disease by washing away harmful bacteria before it has a chance to do any damage to the oral tissues or structures.

Carry a Toothbrush

Another helpful way to keep your mouth clean and breath fresh while on the go is to make a habit of carrying a toothbrush. There are plenty of drug stores that sell travel-sized toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes. If your teeth need to be cleaned or you simply want to freshen your breath, excuse yourself to the nearest restroom and have a quick brush.

Regular dental screenings and cleanings are also important to combat halitosis and other dental problems. If it is time for your next appointment, be sure to give our office a call.
