Dentist lists ways to avoid mouth odour
The President of the Nigerian Dental Association, Olurotimi Olojede, has said good oral hygiene, including regular tooth brushing with fluoride toothpaste, will help in eliminating mouth odour.
Olojede, who spoke at the public presentation of Close-up new variant, “Fire-Freeze by Unilever Nigeria Plc, noted that many people suffering from mouth odour were ignorant of oral habits that could help suppress it.
According to him, a good fluoride toothpaste contained active ingredients that could kill some bacteria in the mouth, thereby reducing the offensive odour.
He said, “Many people who have mouth odour do not even know, it is important you know first and quickly adopt an oral hygiene routine like brushing day and night to reduce the activities of bacteria that cause this smell. We want people to know that good fluoride toothpaste will take good care of your mouth while leaving it with long lasting freshness.”
Also, the Managing Director of Unilever Nigeria, Thabo Mabe, said that 90 per cent of world’s population suffer from tooth decay or gum disease.
Mabe said, “Our mouth is the gateway to our body as we eat, drink, talk and kiss with it. We must pick toothpaste and toothbrushes that will help us kill germs that cause tooth decays or mouth odours.”
