Worried about Bad Breath on a Date?
No one wants to be known as the person with bad breath, but sometimes it just cannot be helped. Whether you were enjoying a salad with onions or a loaf of garlic bread, there are simple ways to fight bad breath before or during your date.

•  Drink water - If you forget to drink water when you are eating your meal, drinking it afterwards can still help. Oftentimes bad breath is the result of particles of the food that you ate, lodged in the crevices of your teeth. Drinking a full glass of water and swishing it around your mouth as necessary to loosen the particles is the first step to fighting bad breath.
•  Use floss or a toothpick - If you feel as if you still cannot remove the particles from your mouth, sneak off to the bathroom to floss. If that is not possible, at the very least, grab a toothpick to try to remove the particles. The less food that is left behind, the lower your risk is for having bad breath.
•  Carry Xylitol gum - You never know when you are going to suddenly have bad breath, which is why you should always have Xylitol gum on hand. Xylitol is an ADA approved sugar substitute and is the ingredient in sugarless gum. Chewing gum can help you to produce more saliva, increasing the chance of the food particles leaving your mouth and decreasing your chances of bad breath.
