MARYVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- August 6 is National Fresh Breath Day a day to celebrate all that is minty fresh and banish those smells wreaking havoc on mouths around the world. Whether you choose to spend the day reflecting on ways to freshen your own breath or paying it forward by dropping hints to your friends who you keep at arm's length, DenTek urges you to join the charge against the bad breath epidemic.
"Let's be honest. We've all been there, but there is no reason to surrender to bad breath," said Rachel Scharfman, DenTek Brand Manager. "National Fresh Breath Day is the perfect excuse to jumpstart your oral health routine and stop bad breath once and for all."
Since there is nothing quite like a breath of fresh breath, DenTek is calling attention to this holiday by sharing some helpful tips for fighting bad breath.
- Brush and floss regularly, especially after consuming foods known to cause bad breath, like garlic, onion, coffee and alcohol.
- When you're on the go, keep floss picks handy for a convenient and quick freshen up, since floss picks get rid of bacteria that cause bad breath.
- For those who are really serious about fresh breath, tongue cleaners get to the root of the problem by scraping away bad breath odors at the source.
"No one wants the social stigma that comes with always being the person with bad breath. Instead of masking it with gum or mints, it's time to take a proactive approach by using tools specifically designed to combat the germs that cause bad breath," added Scharfman.
DenTek makes flossing easy with floss picks designed to easily reach and clean between teeth to remove food particles and plaque. Go one step further and squeegee all the germs that cause bad breath off your tongue in three easy swipes with DenTek's Comfort Clean Tongue Cleaner.
