alexandria asked:

and i’m not talking about blowing in your hands and all that stuff.. i’m talking about how can you tell if people smell your bad breath?? Whats the body language like and what do they say to hint that you have bad breath?
i’ve had people offer me mints and one time someone offered me gum but i wasn’t close and they were also eating some themselves. i’m very confused… One time at my desk someone turned back and we started talking (she acted completely normal like she smelled nothing) and five minutes later after that she said randomly, “someones breath is kickin!”. Was that just to be funny? Or was that a hint?
No one ever avoids talking to me and I have alot of friends so am I just thinking to much?

Bad Breath Tips to Help You Eliminate Bad Breath Caused by Gum Disease

Kelvin Ho asked:

There are many things at home that can offer you a quick and easy solution to bad breath, but for them to work, you not only need to know what they; you also need to use them diligently. Many times people do want to get rid of their bad breath and even make the effort of learning about remedies, but when the time comes to use them, they procrastinate.

The majority of people are busy with their daily lives and it may not always be easy to take out time to clean your teeth and mouth, especially when you are in important business meetings or are out running errands. But a bad breath problem needs to be taken seriously and home remedies can be of great help.

Let us see what these remedies actually are and then figure out how you can use them no matter how busy you are.

The first and foremost thing you can do is to get rid of the source of the problem. Whatever goes into you mouth, whatever goes into your diet, the most important thing is neglecting oral hygiene and not regularly brushing and flossing.

Nothing in the world is going to help you if you don’t help yourself by brushing and flossing regularly. You have to make it a point of doing this every morning before you leave home. Five minutes is all it takes to give full attention to your brushing, cleaning your teeth, gums, cheeks and tongue. don’t forget to rinse very well and forcefully to get rid of all the bacteria and germs which may be accumulated in your mouth overnight.

One of the home remedies which is easily available is flossing. Flossing is of utmost importance even after lunch or any meal just as brushing is. Quite a few people avoid flossing after lunch, particularly if they are at work or out. If you cannot use regular floss there are oral piks and portable floss devices which are easy to use.

In fact, even if you don’t brush, you can still floss and the floss will help get rid of food particles and debris which can easily be rinsed away. If you can’t brush after flossing, you swirl some water around your mouth and spit it out. Such simple home remedies for bad breath can help you keep bad breath at bay throughout the day no matter where you are or what you are doing.

Another safe and easy remedy for bad breath is drinking lots of water. If you keep yourself hydrated all the time, you can get rid of bad breath which may be aggravated by a dry mouth. When the mouth is dry, germs and bacteria can easily multiply and increase the incidence of bead breath. Strangely many people just take caffeinated drinks, soda and other beverages not realizing that these don’t help in hydration or rinsing of the mouth.

Other quick home remedies are things like antacids because bad breath may be coming all the way from the stomach. If you overeat or eat spicy foods, your stomach will produce more acid to digest the food, and this can reflux back into the esophagus resulting in bad breath.

The acid and juices produced by the stomach can cause malodorous breath. Antacids can help in settling the stomach and neutralizing the acid as can milk, fruit juices and seltzer water. Drinking lots of water with or after your food also helps in moving it faster through the digestive system so that chances or bad breath decrease.

Just knowing what are home remedies to combat bad breath is not enough — you need to make use of regularly.
