Words of Wisdom No. 7 – Stay fresh

Before there was ever any sort of blue mouthwash that could mask natural halitosis, people used the smell of your breath as an indicator of overall health.  Aside from being repulsive on its surface, smelly breath often indicates having gastrointestinal problems in the body. If you suddenly have halitosis or if you have had it over your lifetime, you should go see your GI doctor as well as your orthodontist immediately. You may have some serious health issues that you have been hiding for a long time without you knowing it.

A Total Turnoff

Bad breath is definitely a turnoff in a world of pristine white teeth and perfect smiles. You had better believe that people are looking at how you appear to the senses of others in your professional and social circles. Bad breath is one of the number one turnoffs on a first date. It is also the reason that you may not be getting the promotion that you think that you deserve. If you don’t take any other advice about your appearance, your smile, the health of your teeth, take these words of wisdom to heart: Stay fresh.

With reduced costs of orthodontic treatment, there is also no reason that proper oral health should be beyond your budget. Your orthodontist has the ability to fit proper treatment into your life as it is today, improving your professional and social standing.

Words of Wisdom No.3 – Clean your tongue

Third tip in our Words of Wisdom series on tooth brushing tips involves your tongue. As an orthodontist Fresno CA team, we are dedicated to helping you maintain a healthy mouth. Most people recognize the importance of making sure your teeth and gums are healthy, but sometimes the tongue is neglected.

Failing to perform the proper maintenance on your tongue could have serious consequences. It could cause bacteria to grow which can lead to conditions like gingivitis, black hairy tongue, bad breath, and others. This post will give you some guidance on making sure your tongue is as healthy as the rest of your mouth.

How to Clean your Tongue

First, apply a little bit of toothpaste to the surface of your tongue. This will help kill any bacteria. Use a tongue scraper to gently scrub the surface of your tongue. You can find tongue scrapers at your local pharmacy or grocery store. Do this very carefully since you don’t want to irritate your tongue. Scrape your tongue in a downward motion making sure you’re not applying too much pressure. This should be done at least once a day. After scraping your tongue, make sure you rinse out your mouth with water. If you want, you can use mouthwash every now and then to fight any bad odors.

Make sure you regularly clean your tongue scraper. You don’t want to end up putting the bacteria back on your tongue! If you soak it in hydrogen peroxide or a denture cleaner, your scraper will be safe to use.

If you are concerned about your oral health, then you should make sure you’re cleaning your tongue regularly in order to prevent the buildup of bacteria. Regular dental checkups are also important for your oral health. A dental professional can help you make sure that you’re doing a good job keeping your mouth clean and healthy.
