1 Brushing your teeth
This is how you can prevent or stop bad breath. Brushing your teeth properly will prevent some causes of bad breath. When you brush your teeth make sure you reach all of your teeth and concentrate on the areas where they meet the gum. Do not scrub your teeth as you will do more damage than good, just simple light brushing technique. You can also brush your tongue, as your tongue gets built up with bacteria, but don’t over brush your tongue or go to far back. Make sure you replace your tooth brush every 3 months.
2 Flossing your Teeth
Flossing is an important part of your dental hygiene. Flossing will prevent the build up of bacteria between your teeth, which can cause bad breath and lead to other serious problems.
3 Avoid smelly foods
Eating certain foods like garlic, onions or spicy foods will make your breath smell as these absorb in your body and lungs. Avoid coffee and alcohol these both dry out your mouth, harboring bacteria. Also avoid acidic drinks and soda drinks as these can ruin your tooth enamel causing cavities.
4 Eat certain foods
Whilst avoiding certain foods these foods actually get rid or prevent bad breath especially those high in vitamin-D.
- Orange Juice
- Sugar-free yogurt
5 Avoid Tobacco “Smoking” to stop bad breath
There are so many reasons to stop smoking and bad breath is just one of them, smoking makes your breath smell as the chemicals build up in the mouth and the bacteria remains in your mouth and throat for longer.
6 Drink Water
Drink water because your mouth harbors more bacteria when its dry so drink plenty of water to flush the bacteria away. It promotes saliva which naturally cleanses the mouth.
7 Chew sugar free gum or mints
Like water it can help you produce saliva in your mouth whilst giving off a minty smell, be-aware it only covers up bad breath and will not stop bad breath or prevent it.
Its easy to stop bad breath but it could also be a sign of something more serious.
