Tips for Combating Bad Breath

Trusted Health Products

Bad breath can be caused by many things. Some reasons for bad breath are medical concerns such as undiagnosed diseases or dental issues such periodontal disease, but not all bad breath is caused by an underlying disease. Other factors that might lead to halitosis, the technical term for bad breath, include the food we eat such as garlic or onions, and dehydration. You can make your mouth feel fresh and clean by following a few tips for combating bad breath.

  1. Brush and floss often. Plaque and food buildup promote the growth of oral bacteria, which leads to stinky breath. Floss once a day and brush your teeth at least twice daily. To be prudent, increase brushing to three times a day and floss more often, but don’t get excessive.

  2. Use an oral rinse. Using mouthwash not only freshens breath but helps remove harmful bacteria from your mouth. Just be sure to use a germ-killing brand.

  3. Brush your tongue. That’s right. Running your toothbrush lightly over your tongue can also remove smelly bacteria.

  4. Don’t like smelly food breath? Don’t eat smelly food. Pungent foods such as garlic and onions, while nutritious, contain substances that enter your bloodstream after eating them. Brushing won’t remove the smell because it is exhaled through the lungs as you breathe. If this is an issue for you, avoiding these foods is the best alternative.

  5. Healthy gums. Have your teeth and gums professionally cleaned per your dentist’s recommendations to keep bacteria from accumulating in the pockets below the gumline.

  6. Use tooth oil. Tooth oil is a chemical-free product used to rid the mouth of bad bacteria along the gumline. Tooth oil is swished in the mouth like a rinse but doesn’t have the chemicals some mouthwashes do.
