One of the most cherished traditions of the holiday season is getting a kiss under the mistletoe. However, no matter how long you stand under the sprig, no one is going to stop and kiss you if your breath is awful. The best defense against bad breath is proper oral care. Be sure to brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once a day. It’s also a wise idea to clean your tongue with a tongue brush or tongue scraper, since much of the odor causing bacteria is found there. Drinking lots of water, avoiding pungent foods, and chewing sugarless gum may be a temporary fix but only a careful and thorough cleaning by your dentist will truly stop halitosis.
