After consuming that large, scrumptious meal with your friends, you want to make sure your teeth are clean before heading to the next spot, for dancing. You are happy you brought some dental floss with you so off you go to the washroom to pick out the food stuck between your teeth.

 Also, check-

Dental floss makes your mouth feel fresher especially if it has a scent to it like mint or bubble gum. There is no leftover food flavour in your mouth and your breath smells that much better. Wow! Now, you really can see why your dentist recommends flossing your teeth once a day.

Did you order garlic toast and now smell the after-effects of eating it? This is a key reason why having mints handy is a good idea. You can freshen your breath with a simple pop off the top of the mint container. Fresh breath means you don’t have to fear to speak to someone in close proximity, worrying if they are sniffing all that garlic from inside your mouth.

Mints are a tasty delight that can help out on your night of festivities.


Consider bringing a bottle of water with you for your night out. Why? Water helps quench your thirst, so you won’t get dehydrated which is essential when you are dancing and drinking the night away. Water also helps to keep smelly breath away as it moistens a dry mouth. Dry mouths is often a key reason people have bad breath.

Do you need another reason to bring that water with you? Slosh it around in your mouth during a meal to help keep your teeth clean and aid in minimizing food particles from getting stuck in those gaps between your teeth.

Are you looking for a way to make water taste flavourful? Add a little bit of lemon or lime to it so you can get some oomph with your H2O.
