Quick Home Remedies For Bad Breath At The Office

James Allen asked:

it’s horrible when it happens – you’re at the office and you’ve been called into a meeting with the boss. you’ve just finished your third cup of coffee of the morning and cigarette break ended just minutes ago. You know your breath must smell terrible, but you don’t have a toothbrush or mouthwash. here’s what you need do to get through the face to face office confrontation without your halitosis ruining the day.

First, you need to reduce the amount of food particles and bacteria in your mouth as quickly as possible. Find some way to scrape your tongue, as that’s where a lot of the odor is likely coming from. A plastic stirring spoon from next to the office coffee machine works great in this case. Just don’t stick it in too far and gag yourself. No spoon? Be creative; the long flat end of a pencap or even a stiff business card can work in a pinch.

Next, you need to rinse your mouth out. Get a paper cup of water from the fountain, rinse well, gargle and spit. If you’re lucky enough to have a kitchenette in your office, stir some salt into that water first. The salt will help force out some of those food particles stuck between your teeth and temporarily stop some of the stink from food fermentation that may be occuring.

Now you have to make sure your breath can hold out for the length of the meeting. At this point you should try to hydrate your mouth and your body. Drinking a few cups of water now would be great, but don’t overdo it, you don’t want to have to run to the toilet in the middle of your meeting. A cup of black tea is good too, as the anti-oxidants will help keep your bad breath in check. Skip the cream and sugar, but if there’s a slice of lemon available, toss it in. Whatever you do, don’t drink more coffee, you’ll be right back to square one.

Finally, if at all possible, bum some gum off a co-worker to chew on the way to the meeting. You probably don’t have time to be picky at this point, but if the gum is sweetened with xylitol, even better. Make sure to grab a tissue too and remember to dispose of your gum in it before you get to the meeting.

Being stuck alone in your cubicle all day long can cause you to become very lax in your oral hygiene routine. Office culture also encourages a diet of coffee, soft drinks and unhealthy snacks that do not support clean breath. Because of this, many office workers suffer from bad breath, but don’t even know it until the worst possible moment. Luckily the routine above can save the day in a pinch.

A Confused Individual asked:

Hi. I was wondering if you could tell me the best, most healthy, and environmentally friendly toothpaste and toothbrush on the market?
Seems like there are just so many now a days and all of these toothpastes contain bleaching and whitening elements, which just sound nasty and harmful.

Oh, and does anyone know a good way to get rid of bad breath?

Thanks!

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.
