Bits of food that get caught between the teeth and on
the tongue will rot and can sometimes cause an unpleasant
smell. So correct and regular brushing is very important
to keep your breath smelling fresh.
The bacteria on our teeth and gums (plaque) also cause gum disease
and dental decay
. If you see your dentist
regularly this will not only help prevent bad breath but
will also let the dentist look for and treat these problems.
