Basic Guide To Fighting Bad Breath

Paul Hata asked:

Many human beings have bad breath now and again. It is a constant or recurring case of bad breath that can offend friends and loved ones and become a real social problem. There are several causes of bad breath and, fortunately, most of them are easily dealt with using simple natural techniques.

Many rumors circulate from time to time about the cause of chronic bad breath, or halitosis. One can almost rule out the theory of bad breath coming from places other than the mouth. The esophagus is collapsed normally and air can only escape in the form of the occasional burp. If your mouth and teeth are healthy you should first check the dorsum, or that area on the back of the tongue.

Whatever the cause of your bad breath be the most common remedy i.e. mouthwashes is not only ineffective, it is counterproductive also. A mouthwash is a blend of flavors, a bit of dye, and too much alcohol.

While the claims that mouthwashes kill the bacteria is true, it is also true that the bacteria quickly come back again and in greater force than before one would have used the mouthwash. But in addition to being ineffective, mouthwashes are also being dangerous.

Too much mouthwash is irritating to the gums, the palate, the tongue, and the mucous membranes of the mouth. In a small percentage of people, who are susceptible, and those who smoke and drink, heavy use of mouthwash can cause certain types of cancer.

Other ways to fight bad breath

If one does not wish to use anything in order to freshen up the breath, one can put a few drops of peppermint oil in a glass of water and rinse. Bad breath, or halitosis, has a number of causes, the most obvious one being bad dental hygiene.

If one doesn’t brush your teeth regularly and well, bits of pieces of food will become lodged between your teeth and will decompose, causing a bad odor. One probably already knows that you should brush your teeth carefully twice a day, but there are some other measures you can take to fight bad breath.

Conclusion

Brushing the tongue is probably the single most effective thing you can do. In various researches, it has been shown that brushing the tongue alone is a better guard against bad breath than brushing only the teeth.

Brushing both the teeth and tongue can help reduce bad breath due to poor dental hygiene almost entirely. One does not need to scrub your tongue. Just gently brush the tongue with a soft-bristled brush to wash away the microscopic bits of food that become trapped in the tiny protuberances.

Has OraMD cured your bad breath?

bad breath cures
Jim asked:

My gums bleed when i brush them and I have bad breath. I have tried everything baking soda, Hydrogen Peroxide, and stuff. I brush like 3 times a day and floss. I keep having the same problem. I can tell when people look away when I am talking to them. I chew sugarless gum and try to drink lots of water but nothing seems to help. I just bought a bottle of OraMD and have been trying it. I think it is helping and I know it takes time usually but I wanted to see if any other people have tried it and what results they got.

Thanks
I even tried Smart Mouth, Dr Katz and most other products found at CVS.

Cure Bad Breath.A Couple Of Bucks For Home Remedy Will Cure Bad Breath Forever

Avery Mann asked:

let’s face it.  We have all had bad breath at one time or another. Halitosis, as it is officially called, is simply bad or smelling breath. When I was much younger, I thought that halitosis was some kind of foot fungus. It just didn’t sound like anything to do with people’s mouths. Although I must admit, I have known a few friends over the years, whose mouth had their foot in them quite often. Seriously though, bad breath is no laughing matter. According to the experts, it may not just indicate the need for a breath mint, but rather a symptom of something much worse like tooth or gum disease, or even an intestinal disorder. It can also be a case of poor oral hygiene. If that is your problem, stop reading this article and simply clean up your act. I do know however, for most people halitosis is not directly their fault. You see it all originates from the gums and tongue. As food particles decay, bacteria form, leading to the eventual odor. There are of course many more causes for halitosis, and if it persists you should consult your doctor. It is not always a matter of regular brushing and flossing. Stay away from mouthwashes with flavorings, dyes, and alcohol. If your sitting there thinking, there is nothing wrong with my oral hygiene routine, then do I have a story for you.

I had a friend whose breath was so bad we use to try to get him to eat onions just to mask the odor. His teeth were as white as they could be, and he had very few cavities. On top of everything else, he was an impeccable dresser and a neat freak, so no one ever questioned his hygiene. I no for a fact he was one of those people that would floss after every meal, and still his breath would enter a room three seconds before he did. Now the experts that he saw about his problem, all said it was because he had “dry mouth.” He wasn’t producing enough saliva. It seems that saliva is the key   ingredient in your mouth that helps keep halitosis from manifesting itself. So my friend would be constantly chewing mints to try to create saliva and suppress the odor. Most of the time he simply smelled like sour mint. That was before he met his future wife. She was a stunning beauty that had come with another friend to this particular party. Being it was their first date he didn’t mind so much that she was spending time with old Mr. ” dry mouth.” In fact he brazenly took bets on how long she would be able to stand the smell. That was his unfortunate downfall. The bet consequently made him stay away, and thus the seeds of romance were planted. As we later found out, the whole time all they did was talk about his breath. It seems that she had once suffered from an equally bad case of halitosis. Before leaving however, she had handed him a piece of paper with a formula on it. Let me tell you, the next time we saw him, he was a completely different guy. He said the advice she had given him consisted of nothing more than a home remedy that cost only a couple of bucks. Well needless to say, they got together and are still together, and both of them have the freshest breath of anyone I know.

So if this little story has some ring of truth for you or a loved one, listen up. There is a site that has a report that offers not only the same kind of home remedy, but a wealth of knowledge on the subject of halitosis. For example did you know that:

*There are 5 deadly myths about bad breath almost everyone believes… that are probably making your condition much worse!

*Brushing your teeth is good for you, but it will NOT improve your bad breath… find out why. (Also find out what to do, that will wipe out your bad breath.)

The report is full of interesting facts like these. To discover all you need to know about eliminating bad breath forever, please go to:

Is my kitten’s bad breath just linked to his teething?

bad breath
SoCalLizzie asked:

My kitten has breath so bad that if it could be bottled, would be more deadly than any biohazardous material. Seriously, it’s narsty. But it’s not like it smells like gingivitis, it just smells like his food. i’ve started to get him ready for teeth brushing and he loves the taste of the kitty toothpaste. Yesterday I used the little toothbrush along with the paste, but his gums started to bleed a little bit. Is this common in teething (he’s 5 mos. old) or could it be some sort of problem? he’s always had the bad breath and i’ve taken him to the vet for his shots and they looked at his teeth and never said a word. And he eats like a horse and is super playful, so he doesn’t seem sick or anything…

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.
