hi and welcome to biteawayTV I’m nora a swiss dental hygienist since 16 years and the founder of biteaway.com and in this video I’m going to explain you the top three reasons for bed breath also known as halitosis and how to cure it once and for all bad breath is an embarrassing problem that affects many people around the world here we discuss the three main reasons for bad breath and the best solution to deal with it people spend millions of dollars every year on temporary bad breath killers why because it can have a negative effect on all of your social interactions think of kissing but wouldn’t it be better to prevent bad breath in the first place this is something I educate my patients on when they come to me with this complaint first we need to understand the reasons why we have bad breath we start by number one a poor dental hygiene routine if you don’t clean your teeth properly including and listen to me including the spaces between your teeth this will not only result in bad press and black build-up but it could also lead to a series of oral health issues like gum disease cavities and tooth decay and nobody need this it’s a hundred percent preventable number two now cleaning your tongue properly sixty to eighty percent of the bacteria in your mouth exists on your tongue so if you don’t clean your tongue properly every day the bacteria is allowed to thrive resulting in a white tongue and smelly breath number three the food and drink we consume all of the following food and beverage contribute to bad breath because of the smelly compounds they leave behind or their diuretic effect garlic onion spicy food you name it fish particularly tuna coffee alcohol or all soft drinks as well so how to cure bad breath the easiest way to prevent bad breath in the first place rather than temporarily treating it or masking it with chewing gum or mints is to clean your teeth and tongue thoroughly every day by removing the residual food particles between your teeth and the bacteria from your tongue you can eliminate them main causes of bad breath so what is a good daily dental routine here’s what I tell my patients step number one use interdental brushes once today in the evening instead of flossing they are known to clean the spaces between your teeth much better and it has been widely reported recently that perhaps flossing is less effective at it was first thought to be but maybe you have a couple very small gaps between your teeth where you can’t brush and of course they’re flossing is the best way to clean I have many patients who need to floss between the front teeth and only use the interdental brushes on the back teeth that’s absolutely fine don’t worry at all step number two the most effective way to clean the bacteria of your tongue is with a tongue scraper they should be done before brushing once in the morning and once in the evening starts on the back of the tongue and scrape the white stuff toward the tip step number three brush your teeth twice a day in the morning and evening don’t brush your teeth for too long and don’t do it too hard because this can cause birth defects and I see this with a lot of my patients instead brush your teeth for two minutes trying to focus on each individual tooth and with a medium intensity be nice to yourself step number four finish your dental hygiene routine with swilling mouthwash for 60 seconds in the evening and that’s it guys only four steps only ten minutes a day having a good teeth cleaning routine every day requires a bit of persistence I can hear you but imagine having the confidence that comes with fresh breath and a beautiful smile it’s totally worth spending a few extra minutes every day and the good news is you can start right now and you will notice the effect almost immediately go for it last but not least did you know seventy-three percent of Americans would rather go grocery shopping than flossing their teeth well good to know that you can take your internets brush with you and clean between your teeth while you’re stuck in traffic on your way to grocery shopping so no more excuses guys okay so if you have any questions please leave me a comment below or get in touch with me I would love to answer to any question if you like this video hit the like button below as you know sharing is caring so please share it with your friends and make sure to subscribe thanks for watching and I’ll see you in the next video bye
