We all know that bad breath not only causes embarrassing personally but also affects others, who have suffered from it and those on the receiving end as well. The negative effects this kind of disease poses really turns into a matter of concern that many people are worrying about. Therefore, it’s extremely important to figure out some solutions to deal with bad breath. Let’s look at these following recommendations:
- Brushing your teeth more often and properly
“How to brush your teeth in the right way?”, which seems to be quite easy, but actually, it has become a really hard question for everyone due to the fact that up to 76% people surveyed admits that they do not know to practice appropriately (Johnstone, 2013).
We all see that brushing properly is one of the best things you can do to stay far away from having bad breath. We commonly know that we need to brush at least twice a day, for at least two minutes and make sure to cover all areas of your mouth. However, it’s not good when overdoing because you can wear down your teeth and make them vulnerable to decay.
- Having regular check-ups by dentists.
To maintain your oral health, another suggestion is visiting dentists regularly, who can perform a thorough cleaning of your gums, teeth and mouth. They will also notice the main reason of bad breath is by something more serious than simply food or drink, or brushing improperly.
On the other hand if you have numerous bad breath issues and you’re following a strict healthy mouth regime then you had better make an appointment to see your dentist more often.
- Drinking a lot of water
Having a dry mouth is considered to be one of the most fundamental causes of making breath worse because water is the factor that not only helps to flush out the food that bacteria like, but also promote saliva to cleansing the mouth as well as mitigating the stink-causing substances in food.
- Do not use beverages like coffee or sodas, or even alcohol to cleanse your mouth, which actually cause your bad breath.
- Drink more water to stay hydrated throughout waking hours.
- Avoiding smoking or using tobacco
Avoiding or quitting smoking or using tobacco can contribute significantly to prevent bad breath because smoking makes the smoker’s breath retain the smells of stale tobacco smoke after using as well as stain your teeth and irritate your gums.
Hence, stopping smoking will help you maintain a healthier mouth with a better breath.
- Eating healthily
Unhealthy foods including a lot of fat, cholesterol, etc not only affect our health in the long run, but at first, they sometimes damage our breath.
Let’ look at some tips below:
- Say no with some kind of junk food, which can consist a little or even no nutrition, but high in sugar or sodium that affects your teeth directly
- Eat healthy: it’s better to eat some kind of foods such as fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, foods in high fiber.
These above are some fundamental ways to keep your teeth and mouth clean with a really fresh breath. Let’s try!
