Effective Toothpaste for Bad Breath

Bad breath can make socializing an embarrassing ordeal. Using an effective toothpaste could help to freshen your breath and improve your confidence when spending time with friends. Be sure to see your dentist regularly and make sure that your bad breath isn't the result of a serious problem. Walgreens stocks many different brands of toothpaste so you can find one that meets all your oral health needs.

Food and Drink Can Cause Bad Breath

Bad breath has many causes. An effective toothpaste can address the most common of these causes. The most obvious cause of bad breath is eating smelly foods, such as garlic or raw onion, or sipping on boldly flavored drinks such as coffee throughout the day. The fresh mint flavors of breath freshening toothpastes can help to mask these odors, while the act of brushing your teeth also helps to dislodge food debris from your teeth to remove the source of the problem.

Bacteria and Bad Breath

Bad breath can also be the fault of bacteria in the mouth. During the day, bacteria feed on sugars in the food that you eat, creating gases that can make your breath smell rather unpleasant. Antibacterial and anti-plaque toothpastes can effectively remove these bacteria to reduce the amount of odor on your breath.

Bad Breath and Your Health

If you use antibacterial or anti-plaque toothpaste with no success, then you should consult your dentist or doctor for advice. Persistent bad breath can sometimes be a sign of an underlying health condition. However, freshening toothpaste can be a helpful way to reduce this embarrassing symptom while you work with your doctor to manage the condition.

How to Choose a Toothpaste for Better Breath

Toothpastes not only uses strong flavors to mask unpleasant odors, but also addresses your core dental health needs, including plaque removal and protection against cavities. Some toothpastes offer other specialized benefits, such as relief from sensitivity, enamel protection, or whitening, as well as freshening your breath. Look for a breath freshening toothpaste that meets all of your needs to get the most benefit from your daily brushing regime.
