National Fresh Breath Day


Date When Celebrated : August 6 th

Today is like a day of fresh air, as it is National Fresh Breath Day. No halitosis (bad breath) here.

Both Man and Woman have worried about bad breath for eons of time. The use of mouth freshening herbs dates back to around 2,700 B.C. Whether on the dating scene, interviewing for a job, working closely with others, or for countless other reasons, most of us care about how our breath smells....... or doesn't smell. If you don't care about your breath, we can assure you that the people around you do. And so, we turn to a variety of methods to freshen our breath, and keep it fresh all day and night long.

Here are some of the keys ways to avoid Halitosis:

  • Have routine dental exams by your dentist.

  • Have dental cleanings by a dental hygienist every six months.

  • Brush your teeth after every meal.

  • Floss your teeth at least once a day.

  • Use mouth wash regularly.

  • Do not chew gums that contains sugar. The sugar can cause bad breath.

  • Use breath mints regularly. Always have them on hand.


Did You Know? 50% of the bacteria in your mouth promotes bad breath.


Other Names: This day is sometimes called Halitosis Day. That's odd, as Halitosis is the technical term for bad breath, which is the opposite of fresh breath.


We hope you practice healthy oral hygiene and have a Happy National Fresh Breath Day!

The Origin of National Fresh Breath Day:

Our research did not uncover the creator of this day, or when it was created. Perhaps it was someone in the dental hygiene field. Or, maybe it was someone fresh off of a hot date, that ended too soon due to a bad case of Halitosis.

We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
