Beat bad breath with healthy teeth

Beat bad breath with healthy teeth

As kids grow up it’s important to consider all aspects of family health, including teaching them about brushing their teeth.

Dr Nigel Carter, chief executive of the British Dental Health Foundation, claims that a good oral health routine involves brushing twice a day for two minutes each time.

By setting a good example you should be able to help educate your children about the importance of keeping teeth and gums healthy and why everyone needs to brush regularly.

When it comes to your festive habits, Dr Carter advises that to keep teeth clean and breath fresh it can be a good idea to chew sugar-free gum, as this “has benefits of increasing salivary flow”.

With a greater array of food and drinks on offer, he argues that everyone ought to be free to indulge but we should “remember our teeth at the same time”.

If you’re heading to your work Christmas party soon then you may want to make sure you brush before leaving the house, as over a quarter of Britons surveyed in a recent poll from Wrigleys ranked fresh breath as the most important factor in preparing for a festive bash.
