Getting the Right Bad Breath Help

Kelvin Ho asked:

Often when you suffer from bad breath you may not realize it at first and quite often your friends or family may be hesitant to tell you about it as they would not want to embarrass you. A true friend however, will tell you, as it is in your best interest to know so that you can take steps to rectify the problem.

It can be embarrassing when you find out that you have smelly breath and you may become less sociable because of your embarrassing situation. Sometimes, this condition may also leave you with a bad taste in your mouth, so it is possible that you may become aware of the problem on your own.

If you have a bad taste or for any reason think that you may have halitosis, you can do a little test for yourself.

Scrape your tongue with a spoon or a piece of cloth and then smell it to see if it smells bad. Another way to find out is to ask a close friend or family member. I know this can be embarrassing but it is best if you find out so that you can do something about the problem.

Some people get very embarrassed and even upset if they are told that they have bad breath, but there is really no reason to be embarrassed as it is quite a common problem. The usual reaction upon finding out that you have bad breath is to obsessively brush your teeth and tongue and use mouth washes. Do not become obsessive but do take steps to take care of yourself by following these tips which should overcome any temporary breath condition.

* Brush your teeth twice a day

* Brush your tongue daily

* Floss daily

* Drink lots of water

* Have a good clean by a dentist regularly

If you still continue to suffer from bad breath then it may be necessary to seek professional help. The first person you should visit is your dentist. Chronic bad breath could be caused by gum disease or bacterial build up.

You should have a good check up and mention your breath condition to your dentist so they can particularly look for anything that may be the cause. If your dentist finds the cause of your breath condition, then they will be able to treat the problem and rectify it.

If your dentist cannot find a cause for your bad breath then the underlying cause could possibly be an internal condition and you will need to visit your doctor or your dentist may be able to refer you to an expert in the appropriate field.

Your dentist, doctor or specialist should be able to uncover the cause which could possibly be something as simple as an allergy. Once you have identified the cause then you can take the necessary steps to eliminating the cause and therefore eliminate the bad breath.

Using Natural Remedies To Fight Bad Breath

Lee Dobbins asked:

Bad breath can be caused by anything from bad dental hygiene to medicines you are taking to the food you eat. While it can be embarrassing, it can also indicate a serious condition and should be checked by a doctor. Barring any severe medical reasons, here are some tips you can use to fight bad breath.

Drink lots of water and avoid letting your stomach get too empty. When you don?t eat, your saliva production decreases and saliva can help wash away that bacteria in your mouth. Make sure your mouth does not get too dry by drinking lots of water throughout the day which is good for your overall health anyway.

You may also be able to fight bad breath by drinking the right kinds of liquids. We all know that tea is good for you but the chemical polyphenols found in tea can also help to prevent that sulfur producing bacteria that contributes to bad breath. Cranberries reduce the stickiness of bacteria so drinking cranberry juice can help reduce the amount of plaque that is formed and thus reduce the amount of bad breath.

Instead of chewing gum why not take a cue from the ancient Greeks and chew Anise seed? The can be found in the spices section of your grocery store and can be carried with you and popped in your mouth for chewing whenever the mood strikes. Fennel, cinnamon and cloves can do the job as well. Try chewing on these natural treat as an after dinner mint instead of gum or mints which can promote tooth decay.

If you thought parsley was just a garnish on your dinner plate, think again! Parsley has vitamins and minerals but more importantly it has been used for hundreds of years to effectively fight bad breath. The key to this is the chlorophyll which changes carbon dioxide into oxygen inside your body. This prepares the digestive tract to prevent gases and toxins from backing up and by lubricating the tract and various valves.

We all know that baking soda works well to eliminate odor in the fridge, but did you know it can also help eliminate your bad breath? Simply mix some in with your toothpaste when you brush.

Your bad breath may be a problem with digestion and some suggest taking a probiotic. A probiotic will put tons of live bacteria in to your digestive system. This bacteria is vital for good digestive performance. The most popular probiotic is lactobacillus acidophilus or L acidophilus which is commonly found in yogurt.

Finally, the most important tip is to see your dentist regularly and take proper care of your teeth and gums to prevent bacteria from building up and causing odor. This not only contributes to bad breath but bad oral hygiene can also cause health problems throughout your body.

Get Rid Of Bad Breath Fast

Marty Rubenski asked:

Halitosis or bad breath is the very unpleasant smell emanating from a sufferer’s mouth. Rich or poor, healthy or not, you can still be affected. If you suffer from this, you are undoubtedly looking for ways on how to get rid of your bad breath quickly.

There are four ways to get rid of bad breath fast.

1. Religiously observe and maintain exemplary oral hygiene. Brush your teeth three times a day. Floss everyday and use a mouthwash after brushing your teeth. It is best to buy a tooth brush that has a tongue scraper. This will definitely ensure that there are no food particles stuck in between teeth or any white matter on your tongue that will promote the increase of bacteria.

2. Drink lots of water. You can substitute fresh fruits in the absence of water. Remember a dry mouth is a source of bad breath. Water not just flushes food particles in your mouth, it also hydrates your mouth tissues.

3. If you really cannot avoid smoking, alcoholic drinks, coffee or food rich in exotic spices then you may use gum that is sugar free, mints and candies. You may want to invest on mouth sprays for immediate cure. Please keep in mind that these products provide temporary relief. It does not solve the real cause of one’s halitosis.

4. My final suggestion to get rid of bad breath fast is to consider a change in your diet. Studies show that food rich in protein can cause bad breath. The breakdown of protein in the mouth found in steaks, chicken and dairy products can definitely promote bad breath .

A longer term cure for bad breath is to consult your dentist. These experts are trained to check your teeth if they have cavities or plaque. They can also see if you have gingivitis which can be the main source of your halitosis. If your dentist cannot find anything wrong with your teeth and gums then he or she may refer you to a physician who can check on more serious conditions that may be causing your problem. One major systemic cause is ketones. These are smelly chemicals that are excreted through perspiration, urine or exhaled breath. People who have diabetes have inadequate carbohydrate intake often have ketones building up in their blood which causes their halitosis. So get your health checked by a professional to rule out underlying serious problems.

There are really no shortcuts in improving one’s health. Health is indeed one’s wealth. A simple case of bad breath can mean a loss of opportunities to somebody who has it. It can also mean a loss of one’s precious life. it’s never too late to take this for granted. Just follow the suggestions provided and your existence will surely be a breath of fresh air and help you get rid of bad braeth fast.
