Whether you’re in a business meeting or a lunch date, halitosis or bad breath can ruin your whole day and your fabulous first impression. However, with these tips from your dentist at 7 Oaks Laser Dental Centre in Abbotsford, you can quickly fix your bad breath and get back to business – social or professional.

Reach for the Lemon Water 

Dry mouth is often the cause of bad breath so keep your mouth moist and hydrated to avoid bad breath altogether. Washing down bacteria with lemon juice and water can help minimize bad breath and get you smiling again.

Chew on This

Sugar-free gum offers almost instant relief from bad breath. If you’re not a fan of chewing, you can opt for breath strips or mints instead. For a completely natural remedy to bad breath, order a dish that’s garnished with ginger, basil, mint or parsley.

Always Be Prepared 

Carry a travel-sized toothbrush and toothpaste in your purse or bag for optimal oral hygiene on the go. Mouthwash or baking soda are also ideal for quick breath fixes and should eliminate bad breath altogether.

A word of caution from your dentist. Bad breath may be caused by poor oral hygiene or oral infections. If your bad breath is persistent and not caused by anything you ordered at lunch, schedule an appointment at 7 Oaks Laser Dental Centre in Abbotsford and we’ll help you keep your breath fresh so that you can focus on the important things, like getting a new client or a second date.

WHAT IS THE ITERO® ELEMENT™ INTRAORAL SCANNER?

The iTero Element Scanner is a digital impression system that allows your local dentist to forgo messy putty in your mouth. We can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty-based impressions, but it’s faster and can offer a superior clinical endpoint.

NO GOOP. NO GAG. NO WORRIES.

During the impression process, you can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or just want to ask a question. We can use the scanner for new patient, hygiene and Invisalign appointments.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

  • Eliminates the need to retake impressions.
  • Fast and accurate.
  • No unpleasant taste or smell.
  • See a simulation of your potential post-treatment smile.

BOOK YOUR APPOINTMENT WITH OUR ITERO ELEMENT SCANNER

The iTero element scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Please feel free to ask us any questions about iTero, online or on the phone.

We look forward to seeing you!
