What’s the cure for bad breath? or Meet the toothbrush’s forgotten cousin
Most of us make sure to brush our teeth regularly, and in the best-case scenario, we also follow the dentist’s or hygienist’s orders to clean between the teeth every day. But what about that odd-looking gadget next to the toothbrushes, the tongue cleaner – can it really do any good? Well, it depends if you care about your breath (and really, who doesn’t?). It’s a widespread misunderstanding that bad breath usually has to do with stomach problems. Yes, strongly flavoured food and strong-smelling drinks can be a temporary cause, but a very common reason is, in fact, poor oral hygiene.
