Having bad breath isn’t any fun. There’s a reason we all run to brush our teeth first thing in the morning – no one wants to deal with morning breath longer than they have to!

But here’s the thing – some people deal with bad breath all the time. If you have chronic bad breath, you know what we’re talking about. It seems like you just can’t keep your mouth smelling clean no matter what you do. If that’s the case, you’ve probably felt like there’s no hope. The truth is, though, that there may be a way to fix your bad breath.

Interested? Well, keep on reading, then!

What causes it
First, you need to understand what causes bad breath. It’s more than just eating too much garlic bread before bed. Bad breath is caused by certain compounds in your mouth that live on the back of your tongue. Even with the most stringent oral health techniques, it’s hard to get the back of your tongue as clean as it needs to be.

For some people these compounds are chronic and it’s nearly impossible to wipe them out. If you’ve tried everything to rid yourself of bad breath, then you need to ask our dentist at MedPlex Dental in Orlando, Florida, for tips on just how to handle this condition.

The best thing you can do to fix bad breath is to brush your teeth regularly – at least twice a day. Then, while brushing, make sure to brush your tongue as thoroughly as possible. Some brushes come with a tongue scraper on them. If yours doesn’t, then you can always buy one to use just for this purpose.
