Bad breath is not so much a serious health problem, but can be quite an embarrassing problem. Not only can it affect personal relationships but it can also affect important professional relationships.
Instead of using expensive chemical solutions, natural solutions may work better. Natural solutions are also healthier, better for the environment and lower in cost.
One of the largest culprits may be proper dental care. Routine dental check-ups will help remove the build up of plaque.
Plaque is the yellow sticky substance that can build up over time and cause bad breath. Dentists can remove plaque which keeps gums healthy.
Regular brushing of teeth will help remove food particles which can breed foul smelling bacteria. If brushing the teeth is not possible after a meal, swish some water around the mouth to help loosen and remove food particles.
Watching the diet can help with bad breath. Foods such as garlic and onion are absorbed into the bloodstream, brushing of teeth will not remove the odor. High sugar and dairy products slow down the production of saliva.
This will speed up the process of bacteria forming in the mouth. Foods such as apples, raw carrots and raw celery will help clean and remove plaque from teeth.
Peppermint oil or tea tree oil can be used to combat bad breath. Place a drop on the tongue or mix into the toothpaste. While they will instantly refresh the breath, they continue to work by killing bacteria. Baking soda can also be added to toothpaste to help fight bacteria.
Try to avoid caffeine and alcohol. Both of these dry out the mouth and limit salvia production. This allows plaque and bacteria to build. Remember that most breath mints and mouthwashes contain alcohol. They will only cover up the problem temporarily but not fix the problem long term.
Chlorophyll is a natural ingredient that is one of the most powerful breath cleansers. Chlorophyll can be found in parsley, this can be chewed after meals to prevent bad breath. It can also be found in wheatgrass and spirulina.
Fennel seeds can be used to combat bad breath. These seeds can be chewed and will provide long lasting fresh breath. Fennel is also loaded with anti-oxidants and helps in the aid of digestion.
As an alternative to mouthwash, an easy homemade mouthwash can be made using cloves. Seep some cloves in warm water, much like as if making hot tea. Let cool to warm and rinse mouth thoroughly with it.
Cloves also contain powerful anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Not only will it help with breath but may help those who suffer from joint pain.
