You put on your most expensive makeup, you wore your favorite dress and you had your hair dyed for that first date. The food was perfect, the wine was fantastic and the conversations you had at dinner convinced you that you’re going to go out on a second date but the moment he tried to lean close to you to kiss you his face changed from expectant to mortified. At that moment, you knew that you have bad breath. Most people don’t really know they have halitosis unless someone else tells them. If bad breath is what’s stopping you from being romantically involved, it’s time you see a dentist Carrollwood.
Your dentist will never get tired of reminding you to brush and floss your teeth daily and for a good reason! When plaque, a sticky film that results from bacteria being mixed with food particles and saliva, builds up in your teeth it will cause your breath to smell. Removing food debris by brushing and flossing will keep bacteria and plaque at bay and it will keep your breath smelling fresh.
Even if you brush and floss your teeth daily there will always be certain areas in your mouth that your toothbrush and floss won’t be able to reach. These are the areas that will cause plaque and tartar to collect. In order to keep your mouth completely plaque-free, you should see your dentist once every six months the least to have your teeth professionally cleaned.
