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:

? 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.

I Need to Find a Bad Breath Solution Fast

Jim Mcdonald asked:

don’t you just hate bad breath? The only thing worse than coming face-to-face with halitosis is realizing that you have bad breath yourself. Bad breath (the technical term for it is halitosis) is a problem that everyone deals with at some point in their lives. Many people rely on mints and breath sprays as standard halitosis remedies, but unfortunately these provide only a temporary bad breath solution. There may be a temporary improvement in your halitosis, but once you stop the treatment, halitosis returns. Are there any bad breath remedies that can provide a fast, but long-lasting halitosis solution?

To understand why some bad breath remedies only work for a short time, we need to take a closer look at what actually causes halitosis. There are two types of halitosis, or bad breath. Transient halitosis only last for a short time and is usually caused by something you ate, like garlic or onion. Chronic bad breath is more difficult and frustrating to deal with. It may have no connection with anything you’ve eaten.

The number one cause of chronic halitosis is the build up of bacteria in your mouth, primarily on your tongue or between your teeth. Your tongue actually provides an excellent environment for the build up and growth of bacteria because it has a rough surface. Plus, just think about it–your mouth is warm, usually moist, and regularly has food sources passing through it. That pretty much makes it the perfect location of the fast development and growth of bacteria. The problem is, bacteria smells bad. To find a long-lasting halitosis solution, you need to find something that will help control the bacteria in your mouth. Bad breath remedies that don’t kill bacteria just won’t do the job.

The most effective halitosis solution is good oral hygiene. Essentially, this means you should brush your teeth and floss between them after every meal. For most people, this means three times a day. When plaque builds up between your teeth, it provides little pockets that are perfect for the growth of odor-causing bacteria. It also provides a handy surface for food particles to latch onto. If these little bits of food aren’t regularly cleaned away, they will start to decay and contribute to bad breath. that’s why regular brushing and flossing are essential halitosis remedies.

Another vitally important part of a fast bad breath solution is to clean your tongue every time you brush your teeth. You can use a tongue scraper specifically made for cleaning your tongue. Or you can also use the edge of a spoon to safely scrape the bacterial build-up from your tongue. Most new toothbrush designs have started to incorporate a tongue cleaning surface on the toothbrush itself. You can also brush your tongue with the normal part of a toothbrush.

If your oral hygiene hasn’t been so great for a while, then your best bet for a fast halitosis solution is a visit the dentist. A professional cleaning will give you a good jump start on cleaning out the plaque, bacteria and accumulated food particles from your mouth. A dentist can also give you some good professional advice on keeping your teeth clean, keeping your mouth fresh, and keeping bad breath away. You dental health professional may also prescribe the use of antibacterial mouthwash. This type of mouthwash can provide an excellent halitosis solution fast, but be careful not to use it longer than the dentist prescribes. There are actually good bacteria in your mouth that you need to help preserve.

Bad breath is something that all of us have had to deal with at some time or other. it’s simply part of being human. Mints, lozenges and other short-term halitosis remedies may provide immediate improvement, but a long-term bad breath solution is going to take a little extra work. For the fastest halitosis solution, make an appointment with your dentist. Get your dentist to provide recommendations for good oral hygiene and follow his instructions. At least that will keep you from dealing with bad breath from that person in the mirror.
