Bad Breath Remedies: How to Get Rid of Bad Breath

peterhutch asked:

 

Store shelves are overflowing with mints, mouthwashes and other products designed to help people combat and prevent bad breath. Yet these products help control bad breath (halitosis) only temporarily.

Certain foods, health conditions and habits are among the causes of bad breath. In many cases, you can improve bad breath with proper dental hygiene. But, if simple self-care techniques don’t solve the problem, you may want to see your dentist to be sure a more serious condition isn’t causing your bad breath.

The Problem of Bad Breath

Bad breath happens when the bacteria inside the mouth, at the back of the tongue and the areas between the teeth develop. Failure to maintain a good oral hygiene allows the bacteria to grow and cause the problem.

Avocado (Persea Americana)

Another effective remedy for bad breath is avocado, which is far superior to any mouth lotion or remedies for this condition. It effectively removes intestinal putrefaction or decomposition which is one of the most important causes of bad breath.

Guava

Unripe guava is good to use in halitosis. It is rich in tannic, malic, oxalic, and phosphoric acids as well as calcium, oxalate, and manganese. Chewing it is an excellent tonic for the teeth and gums. It helps cure bleeding from gums and stops bad breath. Chewing tender leaves of guava tree also stops bleeding from gums and bad breath.

Run a strand of unflavored white dental floss between your upper and lower back molars. Take a look at the floss. Is it red or brown? Wait about 45 seconds and smell the floss. If it has an objectionable odor, you probably have bad breath.

Hold the tip of your tongue with a clean washcloth and rub the back of your tongue with a clean white washcloth. Again, wait 45 seconds and smell the cloth. If it has an offensive odor, your breath does too.

Brush your teeth twice a day.

Drink atleast 10 glass of water daily.

Gently clean the top of your tongue with the toothbrush.

Take health juices and eat raw vegetables as all fruit and vegetable juices are beneficial in the treatment of halitosis.

Drink plenty of water

The highest cause of bad breath, next to not taking care of your teeth is a dry mouth. If you are not drinking enough water, chances are that your bad

Breath is due to the lack of adequate moisture in your mouth. It is important to drink lots of water for many reasons, and bad breath is just

Floss thoroughly

When flossing, take the time to go back and forth on the inner sides of your teeth to remove all of the plaque and food that might be there. The idea is to clean your teeth where your tooth brush can’t. Wash off your floss or use a clean section of floss before moving onto the next tooth. It is important to floss regularly during the day. If at all possible, floss after meals so food doesn?t get a chance to develop nasty odors while lodged in between your teeth.

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:

Getting Rid of Bad Breath in 5 Simple Steps

Kelvin Ho asked:

Bad breath is a truly disturbing problem that can affect your social life. Unfortunately, there are many causes and sometimes you may just need your doctor to help you determine the underlying cause of it. The good news is that, in most cases, getting rid of it is not at all hard.

Here are some simple steps that will guide you through the most effective actions you can do in order to fight your smelly breath.

Toothbrushes

Most of us know that our toothbrushes need to be changed every three months. The first step towards fresher breath is to purchase a new toothbrush. Toothbrushes tend to become worn after more than three months of usage. The bristles fray and as such would not be able to clean your teeth and gums effectively. Food particles are very likely to be left behind after brushing your teeth with a worn out toothbrush.

Diet

The second step is to analyze your diet. Cut down on any food that might leave your breath with a foul smell. Onions, garlic and certain types of fish are well known to cause halitosis so avoid them by changing your diet and having less of such nasty foods.

Medication

The third step is to look at the medication you have taken. There are many drugs out there that have halitosis as a side effect. If you are presenting using any of these drugs, consult your doctor and ask for a possible substitute.

If none is available, ask the doctor how the drugs cause bad breath. This will allow you to understand the underlying cause so that the appropriate remedies can be applied. For example, if the drugs are known to cause dry mouth, you could then do whatever it takes to keep your mouth moisturize.

Mouthwash and Chewing Gums

The fourth step is to make use of mouthwashes and sugar free chewing gum. Ensure that your mouthwash does not contain alcohol but has oxygenation causing ingredients so that you can kill the anaerobic bacteria present in the mouth, which is one of the most common causes of your smelly breath conditions.

Sugar free chewing gum is perfect in both making your mouth generate saliva and removing eventual leftovers from an early meal (both situations are known to cause bad breath). Do not use mints as they usually contain sugar, which is a great source of nutrients for anaerobic bacteria.

Tongue Cleaner

The last step is to get a tongue cleaner. Brushing your tongue with a tooth brush might actually push present bacteria to the back of the throat, where they can live and multiply while causing extremely bad breath. Using a tongue cleaner is the best way to avoid this.

Conclusion

As you can see from above, getting rid of bad breath is not difficult. With these 5 simple steps, you will be on your way to cleaner and fresher breath.

Bad Breath Remedy and the Causes of Bad Breath

N Baulch asked:

bad breath, or halitosis, requires a bad breath remedy that works because it is often caused by the presence of oral bacteria. If the mouth is not cleaned well, bacteria grows on the tongue, gums and between the teeth and this bacteria causes bad breath.

Bad breath can also be caused by the foods that we eat. There are certain foods that have a reputation for causing bad breath, with onions and garlic being on the top of that list. After consuming garlic, for example, our digestive system breaks down the garlic into molecules, and these molecules themselves have an unpleasant odor. As the blood circulates, some of the molecules go into the lungs and when we breathe, the unpleasant smell is released through our mouths.

Smoking is another common cause of bad breath. The unpleasant odors associated with smoking come from the nicotine, tar, and other tobacco substances that build up on a person’s teeth and soft tissues. Smoking also dries out the mouth, and having a dry mouth aggravates bad breath because there is not enough saliva in the mouth that is needed to wash away bacteria.

Gum disease is another cause of bad breath. Gum disease is a bacterial infection in the gums surrounding the teeth. Bacteria becomes embedded and trapped in these areas and foul odors become apparent.

One of the most common bad-breath remedies is the use of mouthwash. Mouthwashes are designed to flush bacteria from the mouth and leave the mouth smelling fresh. Another bad breath remedy, is to visit a dentist for a complete examination and a proper cleaning of the teeth. Having your teeth cleaned will remove the excessive buildup of plaque and bacteria that grows between the teeth and in the recesses of the gums and will improve the quality of your breath.

If you smoke, by stopping the habit, your breath will be fresher and you will produce more saliva, which is essential for good oral hygiene.
