natural ways to get rid of bad breath : No one wants to be that person in the room with bad-breath when everyone knows it, but no one will tell them. Bad-breath is caused by a wide range of factors, including dry-mouth; foods high in protein, sugar, or acid; and smoking. Illness and tooth-decay can also be a factor in bad-breath. Luckily there are many things you can do to improve your breath.
1.Brush your teeth regularly. Two major sources of mouth odor are bacteria and decaying food particles. There are hundreds of nooks and crannies in the fertile-landscape of your mouth where these offending bits of “rot” can get lodged.
Brush your teeth and rinse with mouth-wash at-least twice a day, and floss at-least once a day.
2.Clean your tongue. It is not enough to simply brush your teeth. Since your tongue has a lot of surface area and is covered with textured bumps and grooves, it harbors more bacteria than the rest of your mouth combined. Removing the bacteria on your tongue can go a long-way in reducing your bad-breath.
3.Consider chewing gum. Any gum will help with bad-breath because the chewing action results in more saliva being produced. Some gums, however, have better bad-breath-fighting abilities than others.
4.Keep your mouth moisturized. A dry-mouth is a stinky mouth. That’s why your breath is worse in the morning; your mouth produces less saliva as you sleep. Saliva is the enemy of bad-breath because not only does it physically wash bacteria and food-particles away, but it also has antiseptic and enzymes that kill-bacteria.
5.Rub your tongue with a natural remedy
• Brush your tongue with a paste of baking-soda and lemon-juice. Add baking soda to a quarter teaspoon of lemon-juice until it has a toothpaste-like consistency. This will also kill-bacteria and remove food-particles or dead-cells that are stuck on your tongue.
• Don’t do this more than once per day.
6.Avoid smoking or chewing tobacco. While there are many reasons to avoid or quit smoking or chewing tobacco (like-cancer), bad-breath is certainly one of them. Smoking causes the smoker’s breath to retain the smells of stale tobacco smoke, sometimes described as “smelling like an ashtray.” The easiest way to prevent this bad-breath is to stop-smoking.
7.Eat foods high in Vitamin D. Vitamin-D helps to inhibit the growth of bacteria in the mouth. Vitamin-D can be consumed in the form of fortified foods and beverages, but it is most commonly and efficiently derived from exposure to sunlight.
• Stock up on vitamin-D rich foods through fatty fish, such as salmon, tuna or mackerel. Some mushrooms also contain Vitamin-D.
8.See a dentist if you experience chronic bad breath. If you’ve tried many of the steps listed above and you still experience bad-breath, it is time to see a dentist. Bad-breath is one of the most obvious signs of gum disease and plaque buildup. Your dental hygienist and dentist will be able to highlight any missing steps in your dental hygiene routine and help you combat any dental issues you might be having.
