Frequently Asked Questions
What should I do if I have bad breath?
Bad breath (halitosis) can be an unpleasant and embarrassing condition. Many of us may not realize that we have bad breath, but everyone has it from time to time, especially in the morning.
There are various reasons one may have bad breath, but in healthy people, the major reason is due to microbial deposits on the tongue, especially the back of the tongue. Some studies have shown that simply brushing the tongue reduced bad breath by as much as 70 percent.
Should I use a manual or electric toothbrush?
There are many arguments for each type of brush but the truth is, it’s more a matter of personal preference. Electric toothbrushes offer some advantages in convenience but with proper technique, you can keep your teeth strong and healthy using either a powered or a manual toothbrush. The most important thing is to brush teeth twice a day and floss daily, using good technique for strong oral hygiene.
