BRUSH AND DON’T RINSE
We are used to rinsing our mouths after we brush for different reasons, but wherever we learnt that from we learnt the wrong thing. After brushing the extra foam from the toothpaste should be spat out and that’s the end of the brushing process. When it is done this way, we give the flouride in the toothpaste enough time to work on the teeth to kill bacteria and deal with whatever causes the bad stench. alsi, don’t forget to brush your tongue, when you don’t bruh your tongue it starts to look whitish and starts to stink from the accumulated dirt.
The flossing culture is not really popular in Nigeria, some people do not even know what flossing means which is very bad. Flossing is the process of removing built up plaque and other debris that are trapped between the teeth using a thread like tool.
Flossing helps to reduce the probability of things being stuch between the teeth for a long period of time causing odours.
BRUSH AFTER EATING
When we eat we have some food residue left in the mouth which when it spends a long time in the mouth it starts to stink. In order to avoid this and reduce the debris built up on the teeth, we need to brush after we eat. We might not need to use toothpaste after eating but just brushing with water will do a lot of help.
