If you deal with chronic bad breath, you’re all-too-aware of the issues it can present. From being a problem during professional settings to making dating difficult, the negative effects of chronic bad breath are widespread.

So how can you cure it? Is there even a cure? As a matter of fact there are some things you can do to combat bad breath. Let’ see what Dr. Amirhassan Pouradib and the team at Preferred Dental in Santa Rosa, California, recommends you do to combat bad breath.

Drink, drink, drink!

A big contributor to bad breath is not drinking enough water throughout the day. If your mouth doesn’t have the moisture needed to create saliva, your saliva isn’t able to produce the bacteria that fight against the bacteria which produce bad breath. Staying hydrated is one of the best things you can do to fight bad breath.

Always floss

Another thing to do is make sure that you floss every day. Only four in ten American adults floss on a regular basis, which means 60% of people are leaving food, plaque, and other debris stuck between their teeth. This obviously isn’t ideal and can cause bad breath to happen fairly quickly.
