When you consistently have bad breath, it’s hard to feel comfortable or confident in many social situations. If you suffer from halitosis, which is chronic bad breath, you’re probably always scrambling to find ways to mask it when you have an important meeting or presentation at work, or a date.

So our team here at James C. Ma in Bakersfield, California put this list together of quick cures for bad breath to help you out.

Carry mini brushes

Brushing your teeth is one of the most effective ways to get rid of bad breath. If you can carry some mini tooth brushes and travel-sized tubes of toothpaste in your purse or briefcase, you’ll have a quick fix for bad breath on hand at all times.

Sugar-free gum

Sugar-free gum can mask bad breath, and it’s not even bad for your teeth! It won’t provide a long-term solution, however, but it works well in a pinch. And, after all, that’s what you’re aiming for.

Travel-sized mouthwash

This is another quick fix. A travel-sized bottle of mouthwash is a great thing to keep on hand if you suffer from chronic bad breath. A swig and swish of mouthwash will give you the temporary relief you need to feel confident in any situation.

If have chronic bad breath and haven’t had it treated, you should come visit Dr. James C. Ma to ensure that nothing serious is causing the problem. To schedule an appointment, call us today at 661-324-9709.
