There are mints, gum, mouthwas, and toothpaste but what if it’s a chronic problem for someone with sinus problems? Do these work? Is there something a doctor could do about this? Or is there something else out on the market that works?

My boyfriend suddenly has bad breath. What could be causing this?

katie k asked:

Everybody gets bad breath now and then – I know that. He brushes his teeth like he should. In the last month or so, his ‘bad breath’ has changed. He calls it ‘old man breath’. He was on steroids for awhile for sinus problems, though he’s off them now and the breath continues…just wondering what could be causing this. Only serious answers please.

Home Remedies for Bad Breath

james sameul asked:

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, is a very common temporary condition caused by such things as oral dryness, stress, hunger (ketosis), eating certain foods such as garlic and onions, smoking, or poor oral hygiene.

Bad breath is caused by odor-producing bacteria that grow in the mouth. When people don’t brush and floss regularly, bacteria accumulate on the bits of food left in the mouth and between the teeth. The sulfur compounds released by these bacteria make the breath smell.

Home remedies for bad breath

Brush your teeth with baking soda first, then rinse out your mouth with plain or warm, salty water. Follow this with regular toothpaste and you are on your way.

Floss your teeth daily. The gunk (plaque) between your teeth may be causing your bad breath.

Scrape your tongue with a spoon or one of those specially designed tongue scrapers. Get as far back on your tongue as possible to scrape off the offending bacteria.

Gently clean the top of your tongue with the toothbrush.

To flush away mucus and bacteria, try gargling with saltwater.

For a quick cover-up eat fresh parsley or mint, or use a mouthwash.

Tea Tree Oil, is a natural cure for bad breath when used as a toothpaste additive. Simply add a drop of the oil to your toothpaste right before you brush.

You can also create a Tea Tree Oil mouthwash by adding 3 drops of the oil to a cup of warm water. Gargle this solution two to three times a day, preferably after each meal.

Clean your sinuses. Since bad breath can be caused by any number of sinus problems, some people get relief by “washing” out the area inside your nose where the sinuses drain, says Dr. Fedok. If you want to try it, use a saline solution in a blue-ball syringe–the kind used to clean out ears. (Both the solution and the syringe are available at most pharmacies.) “you’ll have to refill the syringe several times. Spray the saline up each nostril, letting the solution drain out the other nostril and your mouth. It may take up to a pint of saline to wash out your sinuses,” says Dr. Fedok.

One more effective Home Remedy for Bad Breath is Fennel. Fennel is useful herb and can be used in many ways. Chew the leaves of this herb and allow the saliva to build up in your mouth. Or, mix the fillings of a fennel capsule with baking soda, make into a paste, and brush your teeth, gums and tongue with it. The liquid remains of fennel can be rubbed on your gums and tongue.

Cloves are a strong antiseptic. Make a tea by putting 3 whole or 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves in 2 cups of hot water, and steep for 20 minutes, stirring infrequently. Pour through a well strainer and use as a mouthwash or gargle two times in a day. This is one of the good Home Remedy for Bad Breath.
