Smile... for the experience is near...!
Smile in front of the mirror first, though...
Because we never have enough time
to take proper care of our pearly whites
(and overall mouth)
Just imagine the countless hours of pure,
unadulterated fun we will have devoted,
throughout our lives,
to taking proper care of our
August 6th is National Fresh Breath Day
in several countries, in many time zones...
No mouthwash allowed: as all of them contain alcohol
which makes the mouth dry,
and an ideal festering ground, then,
for the bad breath bacteria...
Mass-marketing's Fresh Breath Mints
are also to be proscribed:
as the sugar contained in those things
actually helps anaerobic bacteria
to thrive and flourish in your mouth
Lots and lots of water instead:
as it will help replenish
a naturally oxygen-rich saliva
that will in turn assist in killing
all anaerobic bad breath bacteria,
even the sulfur-producing variety
that thrives on sugar...
Finally, you've heard it plenty of times
at the dentist's office
and on the oral hygienist's chair:
floss daily, as it combats plaque,
the premiere breeding ground
for bad breath bacteria -
and bacteria, period!
You may even want to do like Ali Wentworth
and have your tongue scraped - finally!
