Brushing your teeth isn’t enough to remove bad breath

 

Brushing your teeth isn’t enough to remove bad breath


It doesn’t matter how often you brush your teeth daily; you’ll still have bad breath if you don’t clean your tongue.

When you see your tongue looks whitish or yellowish, it’s a sign for you to clean it.

A white or yellow tongue results from bacteria building up on your tongue, which can eventually reach your teeth and gums.

This makes brushing your teeth less effective in protecting them from oral health problems.

You can use the backside of your toothbrush to clean your tongue, but using a tongue scraper does a better job of removing bacteria and preventing bad breath

Most of us have had the same routine for brushing our teeth since we were small and first learned the habit: brush, spit, rinse.

But even though it’s natural to have a strong desire to rinse out your mouth with water after brushing, it isn’t always recommended.

Toothpastes that contain fluoride and other ingredients meant to strengthen your tooth enamel might need a bit of extra time on the surface of your teeth for you to get their full benefit.

Let’s cover the pros and cons of rinsing after brushing, so you can decide if it’s time to make a change to your routine.
