1. Brush YO Teeth!

Did we really have to tell you this? Yes! Most adults brush their teeth for 1 measly minute, only once a day, yikes. Your breath, does it stink, well brush more. UDA Chicago Dentists are mandating all Chicagoans brush their fangs at least twice a day for 2 minutes.

2. Scrape That Tongue

Scraping your tongue removes bacteria, food debris, fungi, toxins, dead cells & mucus that build up on your tongues surface, ok, that’s gross. Removing the bacteria alone will freshen your breath.

3. Citrus To The Rescue

Take a lemon, orange or lime wedge, bite down on it and suck for a few minutes. We know, it’s tart, but, the acidic content from the citrus fruit prevents bacteria from growing on your tongue and gums freshening your breath!
