National Fresh Breath Day

National Fresh Breath Day reminds us of dental and oral hygiene. All adults know the mouth must be kept clean, but some neglect this. The consequences are health problems, bad breath and huge bills from the dentist.


It is not clear how this holiday appeared, and who invented it, but this does not detract from its significance. Fresh breath is a sign of health. Our ancestors understood this.

Devices and substances for brushing teeth were used in all ancient civilizations – at least among the nobility. The first modern-style toothbrush appeared at the end of the 18th century, and a few decades later, toothpaste went on sale, originally sold in jars rather than tubes.

Proper dental care is the key not only to a pleasant smell from the mouth, but also to the absence of toothache.

Interesting facts

  • To keep your breath fresh, you need to drink plenty of water, helping the body to cleanse itself from the inside.
  • At various times, people have used salt, charcoal, chalk, talc, crushed shells, coffee, and even urine to brush their teeth.
  • The first chewing gum appeared in the 19th century.

How to take part

Pay close attention to oral cleanliness morning, afternoon and evening. Brush your teeth at least twice, and preferably after each meal. If this is not possible, use a mouthwash. Use dental floss or chew gum to clean the gaps and freshen your breath. Make an appointment with the dentist, especially if you have cavities.

Take a picture of your smile and post it on social media. Tell your subscribers about National Fresh Breath Day. Many will learn about it for the first time and will definitely support you.

Teach children about the need to eat right, maintain oral hygiene, and brush their teeth and tongue regularly. Such habits must be instilled from an early age.
