Bad Breath Natural Treatment

David Klein asked:

Bad breath is termed as halitosis, and odor-producing bacteria that grow in our mouth and produce bad odors. The reason that gives rise to these bacteria is improper care of teeth and mouth. If we do not brush our teeth properly and remove the food particles from the mouth and between the teeth, bacteria start growing on these food particles. These bacteria release a sulfur compounds that is mainly responsible for bad breath. Therefore, one must clean his/her mouth and teeth properly with brush or dental floss if needed. Bad breath is a common and at times temporarily caused due to dryness of mouth, hunger, stress and intake of foods like onion, garlic or smoking. The best remedy is to brush the teeth after intake of certain food items, and cleaning the mouth properly after each meal. This would ensure that the odor-producing bacteria do not get harbour to grow at all and thereby no generation of bad breath.

The cure of bad breath is simple and much to do with awareness and precaution on the part of person suffering from bad breath. The remedies are natural, easy to follow and all means are available at home. The easiest and ever time step to be taken to overcome the bad breath is to chew peppermint, so when the mouth does not give the feeling of freshness, chewing peppermint in any form is helpful, example chewing gum. A person who suffers from constant bad breath should take a pumpkin daily to overcome the problem of bad breath, and should gurgle with salty water as frequent as possible. Taking one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar before having a meal is very effective in combating the growth of bacteria that leads to bad breath.

Cleaning the mouth and teeth properly is the ideal step, and brushing the teeth with baking soda has proved its effectiveness in combating bad breath. Water intake must be taken into consideration as insufficient intake of water also leads to the problem of bad breath. A widely recommended home remedy is blanch Thyme-Leaved Savory and gurgle. This helps immensely in overcoming the bad breath and prevents the generation of bad breath. Drinking of chamomile tea is also very effective in keeping the bad breath in check if taken on regular basis.

Other home remedies you should try:

? To treat halitosis, chew on fresh parsley

? Mix water with a drop of oregano oil in and drink it.

? For better breath chew on mint leaves

? Gargle baking soda in water.

? Drink a hot cup of green tea. You should notice the change immediately.

? Chew on sunflower seeds and then wash your mouth with water.

? Mix a half of lemon juice with lukewarm water and wash your mouth with it.

? Use baking soda as a tooth paste.

? Chamomile tea is as good as the green tea. Just drink it while it’s hot.

? Gargle salty water if you didn’t like the baking soda advice.

Bad breath is not a serious problem, but it causes discomfort to the person having it and people around. So, one must be careful about and it, and must consult a doctor if nothing seems to help in long run.

Chronic Bad Breath-Do You Suffer With It?

Deb Marsden asked:

Chronic Bad Breath-Do You Suffer with It?

Chronic bad breath is no laughing matter. If you have it you’ve possibly experienced embarrassment because of it and this is so unnecessary. Chronic bad breath is usually the consequence of physiological problems more than poor oral hygiene. Anyone with chronic bad breath has tried all the usual measures to fix the problem. Chronic bad breath can affect your life personally as well as professionally.Do you ever think pepoe might be talking about you behind your back?

Perhaps you question yourself and aren’t exactly certain you have chronic bad breath.Consider the following experiences to see if you have chronic bad breath.If in doubt, do something about it anyway, because you can’t go wrong.

I Have a Constant Bad Taste in My Mouth

Do you have a constant bad taste in your mouth? No matter how many times you brush or floss your teeth, you just can’t get rid of the bad taste in your mouth .sometimes, even though we do our best, food particles remain in the mouth and break down thanks to the bacteria that live there.Good oral hygiene often addresses this but sometimes the bad taste remains.

Mint, Anyone?

Picture this. you’ve just begun a conversation with someone and the next thing you know they’re searching in their pocket or purse for something and suddenly they produce a mint and ask you if you want one. Friends may not know how to tell you that you have bad breath so they do the next best thing by offering you a breath freshening agent. Hopefully, you get the clue and accept it making sure to take care of your chronic bad breath as soon as you can.

Breath fresheners only have a temporary effect and can often mask the odor for a brief period. Further action is required to fix chronic bad breath.

Sorry, didn’t mean to get in your space.

When you’re in conversation with others do they all stand close to you or do you find them backing up and using any number of excuses for doing so?

If this happens often you may need to seriously consider the effect your bad breath may be having on others.If you think friends are avoiding you, consider it might be because of chronic bad breath.

Ugh! I thought my tongue was supposed to be pink!

Look in the mirror and check out your tongue. Is it pink or does it have a nasty looking yellow or white coat? In recent years dentists have suggested that as part of our oral hygiene regime, we brush our tongues as well. Food can get trapped in the grooves in the tongue, bacteria steps in and whoa….stand back ’cause your breath is three alarm awful!

it’s not that bad.

don’t be upset if you’ve figured out you have chronic bad breath. you can do something about it and the end of the world is not coming. Go to your dentist and work out a plan that will effectively eliminate your chronic bad breath.

Does a bad smell trigger you to take a deep breath and notice it?

bad breath
okei asked:

Captain Haddock is going for a country walk with Tintin, and he takes a deep breath admiring the fresh air just when he happens to be passing in the vicinity of a rubbish tip which he then of course notices.

Is there a subconscious physiological response to bad smells which triggers you to take in a deep breath and notice it? I believe there might be…what do you think?
