How can we describe Bad Breath? I prefer to call it "Mother of Awkardness".
Can we imagine anything more unpleasant and unacceptable than a person with a stinking mouth in front of us? No, we can't.
Halitosis, commonly known as Bad Breath is very common nowadays due to lifestyle modification and changed food habits.
A good news for all of us is that it can be cured at home only. Here are few remedies present at your home to tackle this monster.
1. Your Toothbrush
Trust me my friends this is the best tool to get rid of Bad Breath. Brush twice daily and most of your dental problems will be handled. A single tooth skipped during brushing is source of so many problems.
Mouthwash does a great job killing the bacteria that causes bad breath. Look for an alcohol-free mouthwash, wait 15 minutes after brushing to rinse so the mouthwash will be effective. One thing you should keep in mind if your mouthwash has a high alcohol content, it can be too drying and actually cause bacteria to grow.
3. Floss Daily
"I know, I know i need to floss daily but it takes a lot of time doc." Now you have to decide what do you want Your Friends or Those 5 minutes you save by avoiding flossing. Think about this.
4. Have Some Fruits
Ahaan. Something good. Fiber-rich fruits and vegetables that require a lot of chewing help to clean out the teeth and the vitamin C will kill bacteria.
5. Clean Your Tongue
The tongue harbors tons of bacteria and it’s a huge surface area in the mouth. Believe it or not. So Brushing your tongue is a must.
Come on guys, this is the easiest thing to do. Drink sufficient amount of water. If you’re not drinking enough water, your salivary flow decreases, which can cause breath to be more concentrated. Always carry water with you and be sure to drink throughout the day.
7. Take Probiotics
A probiotic supplement may help to cut down on candida yeast that lives on the surface of the tongue. And this will lead to healthy and fresh mouth.
8. Chew Some Gums
Chewing sugarless gum throughout the day can help to clean out food particles in the teeth and keep the mouth moist.
These small small things play a major role in your oral health.
