Three Chewing Gum Flavors for the Freshest Breath
Posted on 3/17/2016 by Giri Palani
Brushing regularly is extremely important in keeping your breath fresh, but if you are at work or on the road and don't have access to a toothbrush, sugar-free gum can be a great substitute.
However, not all flavors are created equal when it comes to freshening your breath, so it is important to choose the right one that contains the right oils. Your best option is to choose a sugar-free gum that contains natural oils that will fight the germs that cause odors, and there are a few great flavors to consider.
Mint If you are looking for fresh breath, chewing gum flavored with any type of mint will be one of your best options. Whether you prefer winter mint, spearmint, or peppermint, any of these options will help to stimulate saliva production in your mouth, which will serve as a natural figurer of germs and bacteria. Even better, you'll get a surge of fresh breath immediately.
Cinnamon Cinnamon is an excellent option for a healthier mouth and fresh breath, as the oils found in this spice are potent to germs. You'll immediately freshen your breath while attacking the underlying cause, giving you a fresh smelling mouth for a long time.
Citrus If you want to have a cleaner mouth and eliminate bad breath, citrus flavored gum will do the trick. You'll stimulate saliva production to wash away the germs that cause bad breath. Unlike other flavors, citrus doesn't produce a fragrance in your breath, but it won't smell bad any longer.
When it comes to chronic bad breath, chewing gum can provide a major service in freshening your mouth, but it won't combat the underlying problem. If you find that you have to use chewing gum frequently to improve your breath, please contact us today for an evaluation.
