“Ew! Your Breath Stinks!”: A Complete Guide to Turn Yucks to Muacks!

We don’t doubt you have a well-maintained oral hygiene. But we’re all about the bigger picture here. You know you could be doing more than just brushing. And we’re here to help. Here are some (unexpected) ways that you can level up your oral hygiene.

#1 Stop being cheesy

And that goes for both pick-up lines and dairy products! Dairy products contain amino acids that react with your oral bacteria to produce sulfur compounds that can make your breath sour (read: stinky breath! Yikes!). So, as much as you might want to indulge in a trendy charcuterie board selection for date night, it might lower your chances of getting a goodnight kiss.

#2 Oil pulling

Oil pulling is the act of swishing a tablespoon or so of oil in your mouth for an extended period, giving a little extra love to pushing it through your molars and massaging your gums with the oil.

In Ayurveda, it’s thought to have a detoxifying effect, literally pulling oil-soluble toxins out of the body through the delicate blood vessels in your mouth’s soft tissues. It’s preferable to oil pull before brushing, flossing, or rinsing of any kind, so that you can loosen up any bacteria, toxins, and plaque in preparation for your normal oral cleansing routine.

#3 Brushing alone isn’t enough

We know (or hope) you already brush twice a day (thrice if you’re the dentist’s favourite), but that’s the bare minimum! Brushing might take care of the surface grime, but flossing and using mouthwash will ensure that you get at all the nooks and crannies your brush bristles might miss out on.
