Tips for Teens: How to Keep Your Breath Fresh
Do you want to have an up close and personal conversation with the opposite sex? Maybe you want to kiss someone whom you love.
Keeping your teeth and gums clean is one key to success in these activities.
Why do you have to keep your teeth and gums clean? It’s because your mouth is the dirtiest area of your body!
If you do not look after your teeth and gums you could experience the following embarrassments:
• bad breath
• gum disease
• yellow teeth
• tooth decay
• tooth loss
Here are several helpful hints which will help make magical moments with the opposite sex:
1. Brush your teeth twice a day
Brushing your teeth twice a day (first thing in the morning, and last thing at night before bed) is the first step to keeping your breath fresh. And a quick brush before you go out to any event (such as a date) never hurts either.
2. Brush your tongue too
Remember to also brush your tongue to remove reactive bacteria. Brushing your tongue is very important for removing oral bacteria that inhabits your tongue.
3. Use mouthwash
Using mouthwash helps to kill bacteria which cannot be cleaned by a toothbrush.
4. Drink water regularly
Bad breath also comes from dehydration. Drinking water regularly washes your mouth out and removes food particles after eating. Gargling water after eating also helps to remove food particles.
5. Go to a dentist
Going to a dentist ensures oral health, especially if you have medical issues such as dental caries, painful gums, or others.
