By now, college freshmen across the country are beginning to settle into their new school routine. They have likely found some friends - maybe even a significant other - and are figuring out the demands of their professors. However, as the routine becomes easier, students should remain cautious not to fall into the pitfalls of dorm life.
Personal hygiene can have a tendency to suffer as the activity of the fall turns into lethargy in winter. Students who allow this to happen may be at a higher risk for bad breath. By not brushing, flossing and rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash every day, odor-causing microbes are likely to grow in their mouths, resulting in unattractive halitosis.
This can be a major hindrance for those living in dorms. In a world where friendships are ephemeral, and can be formed or broken in the blink of an eye, bad breath may catalyst to causing your acquaintances to avoid further contact.
Taking steps to improve oral hygiene may be important as students grow accustomed to their new lives. The specialty breath freshening products from TheraBreath may help them over the winter complacency.
