Are you flossing? Flossing your teeth will help to minimize bad breath. Flossing can reduce bad breath for a number of reasons, including:

👉 Flossing helps control plaque between the teeth

👉 Flossing flights bacteria in the gums

👉 Flossing removes tiny food particles that get trapped between the teeth

Flossing should be a REGULAR part of your at-home oral hygiene, and if you're experiencing more bad breath than normal, it may be time to increase your flossing regimen. If the bad breath persists, it may be a sign of a more serious problem.
