Get a good electric brush:

If you’re wondering why an electric brush, it’s because there are places in your mouth that an electric brush will get to that a regular brush may not reach. Thus, guaranteeing a healthy mouth.

It’s compulsory to floss:

Flossing is important but daunting for many. This is one of those things where you just have to do it to prevent things like gum disease and the likes. You should floss as much as you brush and it doesn’t matter which comes before.

Tongues need love too:

Things shouldn’t build up on your tongue. It just looks nasty and gives off bad breath but a good scrub can fix all that. However, some people feel like throwing up when they do. For such people, you can try holding down your tongue or exhaling through your mouth as you brush.

Check for tonsil stones:

Tonsil stones can be described as food, bacteria or simply junk deposits that are logged in the corners of your tonsils. They obviously produce a very nasty breath, so if you have constant bad breath, check the back of your mouth. To get rid of them, try gargling with salt water or getting them out with a toothpick or Q-tip. Otherwise, ask your doctor.
