Getting Rid Of Halitosis or Bad Breath

Jeff Clare asked:

If you want to know more about bad breath and halitosis and whether or not you may have it, it may be best to visit your dentist to find out more about halitosis treatment. But, in the meantime, there are a few things you can do to see if you have the condition, as well as treatments that will help to get rid of the symptoms.

One of the main reasons that people get halitosis is a bacteria infection that can occur in various parts of the body or in the mouth. Bacteria in the mouth can produce gaseous substances that cause bad breath, and if you have food allergies, you may experience this if you eat a food that you are allergic to. Mouth sores or periodontal disease, which is a disease of the gums can also cause halitosis, so you will need to get an exam from your dentist to see if you have periodontal disease if you have tried a variety of toothpastes and mouthwashes.

Dry mouth is another cause of halitosis, and this can be caused by not drinking enough fluids throughout the day. You should make sure that you are drinking enough water each day, and eating plenty of fruits and vegetables each day will help you to avoid bad breath as well. Raw foods contain enzymes and antioxidants that are designed to rid the body of toxins, so a generous serving of them will most likely help you to have fresh breath throughout the day. If you are taking medications for allergies or blood pressure, you may experience dry mouth on a daily basis, which can cause bad breath and halitosis. So, you may have to increase your fluid intake to produce more saliva in the mouth, which will eliminate bacteria buildup.

In order to treat halitosis, you may want to brush your teeth with baking soda as well as toothpaste to thoroughly clean the mouth and rid it of bacteria. Flossing will also help you to rid your mouth of toxins and bacteria that can cause bad breath, and will also help you to remove food particles from your teeth that you may not be able to reach with brushing alone. You should also rinse your mouth with a strong cleansing agent, such as Advanced Listerine with germ killing powers that should work all day, and Scope, with various flavors like Cinnamon will not only give you a clean fresh feeling, but your breath will be pleasantly scented, which is ideal if you have to interact with people several times a day.

Looking For An Effective Bad Breath Remedy?

Steve Searls asked:

Bad breath is definitely a problem that everyone wants to get rid of. If you’re trying to find new creative ways to eliminate bad breath throughout the day, there are several things you can do to make sure that your mouth is clean and fresh through a hectic work day or stressful day at school. Here are some suggestions for a bad breath remedy that may help.

One of the first things you should pay attention to is your diet. Be aware of the things that you eat, and how clean your mouth feels after you have eaten. For instance, if you eat food with high fat content and low fiber content, it is likely that bacteria will fester in your mouth for a longer period of time-which means Mom was right when she told you to eat your vegetables. Keep your diet filled with green leafy vegetables in order to increase your fiber intake and remove toxins from the body; this will help to get your breath fresher longer, and you’ll feel better too.

You should also try out a few natural sources as a bad breath remedy. For example, squeezing a lemon wedge into some distilled water and sipping on it through the day will help to clean out the colon and give you fresher breath. Oftentimes, intestinal problems can be the source of bacteria buildup in the mouth, so if you are continually ridding the body of impurities, you will be able to sustain fresh breath all day without using gums or mints in excess. Chewing parsley after a meal is also a good idea if you are trying to maintain fresh breath throughout the day; the chlorophyll and fiber in parsley help to nullify bacteria from the mouth and give it a fresh minty feel.

In addition to these things, you can also be sure to have few mints or sticks of gum with you throughout the day in order to have a definite fresh scent in your mouth. You can find mints that have natural peppermints or lavender oils in them, so the scent will last longer, and you should stay away from mints or gums with an extremely high sugar content; after the sugar is dissolved in the mouth, it can give off a sour smell. Brushing your teeth after every meal is also a great way to make sure that your mouth is pleasantly scented after you’ve eaten something with a strong scent. Increased water intake is also a good way to remedy bad breath.
