The low-carbohydrate nature of the keto diet may help you to lose weight, but your breath might be sacrificed. This diet can impact your teeth and gums; leading to foul odours. What suggestions will your dentist recommend so that you can effectively overcome such a condition?
– Be sure to keep adequately hydrated by drinking water throughout the day.
– Chew sugar-free gum to produce more saliva.
– Be sure to brush and floss on a regular basis.
“When your body releases ketones, they leach into your urine and breath; hence, the foul smell.”
