Halitosis, or bad breath, impairs your self-esteem, confidence, and even disturbs your everyday life. More than an unpleasant condition, bad breath is a health issue that affects many people all over the world. So, how can you keep it from interfering with your regular life?
Here are a few basic strategies to go about it:
Food has a huge impact on your breath management. Consuming fiber-rich foods will aid in the prevention of foul breath odor. Consume as little processed food, ice cream, sweets, and carbs as possible.
If you have a dry mouth, it is best to use a saliva substitute to keep your mouth wet throughout the day. Aloe vera, zinc gluconate, xylitol, glycyrrhizin acid, CoQ10, K12, and M18 are some helpful natural oral care solutions.
You may get rid of foul breath by consuming black and/or green tea. Green and black teas include polyphenols, which aid in the elimination of sulfur and the reduction of bacteria in the mouth cavity.
Sugar present in the mouthwash may help the growth of bacteria, which may worsen the condition in the long run. Besides, alcohol-based mouthwashes may cause oral cancer as well. There are many oral types of mouthwash available without alcohol or sugar they give satisfactory results.
Smokers are prone to develop periodontal diseases and other oral diseases, which may lead to bad breath. It is observed that smokers are at higher risk of bad breath due to dry mouth and oral ulcers. The tobacco in cigarettes can lead to many other dangerous diseases including oral cancer.
Certain spices, such as cloves, aniseed, and fennel seeds, have therapeutic characteristics that help battle germs that cause foul breath. If you have halitosis, it is recommended to keep a few pieces of them on hand.
Oral hygiene is the most effective and easiest method for eliminating foul breath. Brush your teeth twice a day, in the morning and at night, and remember to clean your mouth after each meal and floss after eating meat, fish, or dairy products.
