You'll agree with me that bad breath is an embarrassing condition to have. Most times, the people around someone who has bad breath won't say because they would not want to embarrass him/her.
Unfortunately, keeping quiet won't solve the issue either. That's the reason why this article has put together 5 effective ways in order to eliminate mouth odour. Check them out below:
1. Brush And Floss Frequently
The sticky substance that accumulates on the teeth called plaque is one of the ways in which bacteria build up in the mouth. The bacteria can also build up in the mouth when food gets trapped within your teeth.
In order for you to solve this problem, it is advisable to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss just once. On the other hand, if you overdo it, you can wear down your teeth and make them vulnerable to decay.
2. Don't Forget The Tongue
Is important for you to know that the tongue is the main portion of the mouth that houses smelling bacteria which causes bad breath. Hence, it is necessary to brush it well.
Even though using a toothbrush might be uncomfortable, I'll advise you to go for tongue scrapers that are designed to clean the tongue and remove bacteria, dead cells and food debris that brushing alone can't take care of.
3. Chewing Sugar-free Gum
It is necessary to let you know that sugar is bacteria's best friend because they make use of it to make the acid that wears down your teeth and causes bad breath.
The simple solution to this is to try as much as possible to avoid chewing gums that are ladened with sugar.
4. Stay Hydrated.
If your mouth often experience dryness, it is important for you to know that it can cause your tooth to decay and bad breath. The only wise thing for you to do is to always drink plenty of water during the day.
5. Rinse With Mouthwash
Aside from the fact that the mouthwash leaves a fresh and minty feeling in your mouth, it adds an extra layer of oral protection by getting rid of the bacteria your toothbrush can't reach.
If for any reason you can't reach your mouthwash, you can still rinse your mouth with plain water after eating in order to remove the food particles that get stuck in your teeth.
6. Don't Smoke (Or Quit)
It is no longer news that tobacco smoking causes cancer, stains the teeth, damages gums and gives bad breath.
Chewing gums and breath mints can only temporarily keep the mouth fresh and stops it from smelling for a short period of time.
In order to remedy the bad breath in this situation, it's advisable for you to quit smoking.
