    Home Remedies for Bad Breath

    Ever been embarrassed in a crowd because of the unpleasant odor of your breath? Or have it made your esteem a little way lower and made you hesitant to talk and socialize with others? Those are just the outward initial effects of a person that has bad breath. Scientifically, bad breath is known as halitosis.In theory, the human saliva has a distinct smell. However, this smell will change depending on the food eaten and the bacteria that triggers strong odor in the saliva. However, the smell if the saliva itself is not the one that causes for one to have bad breath. It is the bacteria that reside in the lining of the tongue or other parts of the mouth that causes a person to have bad breath.

    But where do these bacteria came from? Ironically, the bacteria are by products of the food that are eaten by people. In a simple experiment, after a food is left unconsumed in the table, it will rotten over time. The bacteria are by-products of the rotten residues of the food that people ate. Because the human saliva has a digestive agent, the process of rotting of the food residues is even made faster. The good thing is that halitosis is not a disease or a fatal illness. It is just a hygienic condition. However, when halitosis is not addressed and intervened properly, it can lead some complications in the mouth such as gum and throat problems among others. Aside from this implication, you might also lose some friends or you may become the talk of the town.

    Because halitosis is purely hygienic problem in nature, the main thing a person can do to banish or solve this is by advocating cleanliness. Regular brushing of teeth is advised and also regular cleaning of the tongue and other parts of the mouth. When bad breath was not removed or goes back after some few hours try to have this simple home based interventions.

    1.) Check for broken tooth – because the main residence of the bacteria are the places in the mouth that are not often cleaned by regular brushing, it is better to have the tooth be extracted or be bonded. For complete procedures you may ask your dentist about this.

    2.) Consider mouth rinse – mouth rinse is very effective mouth cleansers. They are specifically formulated to target mouth bacteria that live even to the smallest place in the mouth. There are so many brands and flavors that you can choose from in the market for this product.

    3.) Drink plenty of water – Aside from this will help you get rid of toxics from inside your body, this will also help you keep the mouth wet thereby increasing production of saliva and pushing down dirty saliva down the waste deposits of the body. More water can help you flush food residue out of your mouth down to your intestines thereby lowering your chances of having bad breath.

    4.) Chew gum – this is a temporary intervention. Whenever you feel that your mouth is already dry and you do not have any access to water, you may opt to chew gum instead. Cinnamon flavored gums are said to have an odor control properties which helps eliminates bad breath. You may also choose spearmint and eucalyptus flavored gums.

    5.) Quit smoking – studies showed that one of the effects of smoking is bad breath. This is because some nicotine and tar can accumulate in the lining of the tongues which can cause bad odor in the mouth.

    Just remember that halitosis is not particularly a disease. The main thing here is cleanliness. This will surely keep bad breath away.
