Distant Friends? Your Bad Breath May be to Blame!

Your Bad Breath May be to Blame!oral hygiene

If you have a deep and abiding love of all things oniony, you can bet that your coworkers know all about it. Everybody has moments when their breath is, shall we say, less than fresh. Usually, you become aware of your breath because of that tell-tale funny taste in the back of your mouth.

If you suspect bad breath is the reason your friends and family aren’t returning your calls, there are a few things you can do about it.

Good Oral Hygiene is the Key

Most of the time, the key to fresh breath is good oral health habits. Regular brushing, flossing and rinsing are all most that people need to keep bad breath at bay. If you are a big fan of major bad breath culprits (onions, garlic, spicy food, etc.), you might consider doing your colleagues a favour. Keep a toothbrush and toothpaste in your desk at the office for a quick brush after lunch.

Dry Mouth is Often a Cause of Bad Breath

There are plenty of reasons to make sure you drink plenty of water every day, and we’re going to give you one more: a dry mouth often causes bad breath. Be sure to drink at least the recommended eight glasses of water every day. Ask your doctor if any medications you are taking are known to cause dry mouth. You might need to take in even more water to stay hydrated, based on your individual needs.
