  • Make sure you regularly floss!

    Did you know that along with brushing daily it is also important to floss? Most patients have spaces between their teeth, allowing debris to get stuck, feeding bacteria, ultimately resulting in plaque and acid formation. Flossing daily can remove this debris, reducing your risk for bad breath.

  • Don’t forget to brush your tongue.

    Did you know that bacteria also love your tongue? When it comes to caring for your smile daily, make sure that you also brush your tongue and remove the bacteria that live there.

  • Drink plenty of water.

    Did you know that water can actually help clean your smile? Drinking water actually washes away food debris, plaque, and even bacteria, leaving your smile cleaner and healthier.

  • Clean your smile after meals, even snacks.

    Did you know that each time you expose your mouth to food you are increasing your risk of bad breath? We recommend brushing, rinsing or even using mouthwash following meals, this can reduce your risk of bad breath, tooth decay, and even gum disease.

  • Visit your dentist in Scottsdale regularly.

    Along with proper at-home dental care, professional treatments are also highly important. Visiting your dentist at least twice a year can reduce your risk of not only bad breath but also decay, infection and even disease.
