Few things in life are easier done than said – but saying goodbye to bad breath just might be one of them. It’s incredibly simple to get rid of bad breath issues, even if they’re something you’re constantly working against.

If it sounds too good to be true, don’t worry – it’s true. You can trust us, after all. We’re professionals!

Kidding aside, there are ways to say goodbye to bad breath forever. Let’s take a look at what a few of those are.

What causes it
First, you need to understand what causes bad breath. It’s more than just eating too much garlic bread before bed. It can be caused by the long-term existence of the wrong type of bacteria in your mouth. Even with the most stringent oral health techniques, it can be hard to get the back of your tongue as clean as it needs to be.

A visit with our dentist can help you determine if your bad breath is a chronic or transient issue. Dr. Gerald Fujii has years of experience in dealing with these issues. Visiting our team here at Portland Dental in Portland, Oregon, is a great way to start.

Solutions
The best thing you can do to fix bad breath is to brush your teeth regularly – at least twice a day. Then, while brushing, make sure to brush your tongue as thoroughly as possible. You’ll want to use a tongue scraper for this instance.
