Dealing with Bad Breath

It doesn't matter if you are kissing your precious child, wife or husband, or a friend on Valentine's Day, no one wants stinky breath.  Face it no one wants to be kissed by someone with poor oral hygiene, Valentine's Day or not!  You should always keep your mouth healthy and clean by brushing twice a day and flossing once a day.  Dr. Kiker and Dr. Bowen recommend using a toothpaste with fluoride.  If you need a mint to help freshen your breath Northwest Family Dentist recommends looking for products with xylitol, this ingredient actually helps reduce chances of getting a cavity.  Dr. Kifer and Dr. Bowen also recommend drinking plenty of water, dry mouth is one of the causes of bad breath.
