Suffering from chronic bad breath, or halitosis, isn’t a pleasant experience. It can have a negative impact on your comfort level in social situations. It’s also embarrassing, which makes wanting to go out and do anything something you’ll think twice about.

So let’s look at what Dr. Susan Evans recommends you do to combat bad breath when it crops up unexpectedly.

Carry mini brushes

Brushing your teeth is one of the most effective ways to get rid of bad breath. If you can carry some mini toothbrushes and travel-sized tubes of toothpaste in your purse or briefcase, you’ll have a quick fix for bad breath on hand at all times.

Sugar-free gum

Sugar-free gum can mask bad breath, and it’s not even bad for your teeth! It won’t provide a long-term solution, however, but it works well in a pinch. And, after all, that’s what you’re aiming for.

Travel-sized mouthwash

This is another quick fix. A travel-sized bottle of mouthwash is a great thing to keep on hand if you suffer from chronic bad breath. A swig and swish of mouthwash will give you the temporary relief you need to feel confident in any situation.

It’s important to remember that chronic bad breath may be the sign of a potentially serious underlying condition. If you have bad breath consistently, come see Dr. Susan Evans today. Call 620-663-5297 to schedule an appointment.
