How Do I Get Rid of Bad Breath

It is not hard to keep your teeth and gums healthy and improve your breath.

Below are some simple steps you can follow to keep your mouth fresh and clean:

Brush and floss your teeth

Brush your teeth no less than twice a day and floss at least daily. Flossing removes food particles and plaque that’s stuck in between your teeth. This helps control bad breath.

  1. Rinse your mouth out

Mouthwash helps get rid of bacteria and kill germs that are responsible for bad breath. Also, swishing your mouth with plain water after eating can help your breath.

  1. Ensure you scrape your tongue

Your tongue can form a coating that can be a host for smelly bacteria. Gently brush your tongue using a toothbrush. You can also use a scraper to remove food particles, dead cells, and bacteria.

  1. Avoid foods that make your breath sour

Onions and garlic cause bad breath and brushing won’t help it. The best way to avoid bad breath is to avoid eating them, especially when going to work or to see friends.

Also, you can drink milk after taking garlic and onion to avoid bad breath.

  1. Brush your teeth after meals

Clean your teeth with a toothbrush and fluoride-containing toothpaste after taking meals. Use it at least twice a day.

  1. Clean dentures or dental appliances

Clean your dentures or bridge at least twice a day or as directed by the dentist.

  1. Adjust your diet

Avoid taking sugary foods as most of them are associated with bad breath.

  1. Avoid dry mouth

Keep your mouth moist by regularly drinking lots of water. Avoid soft drinks, coffee, alcohol, and tobacco as they can lead to a drier mouth.

  1. Routinely get a new toothbrush

Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and change it after 3 months or when it becomes frayed.

  1. Homemade mouthwash with baking soda

Baking Soda or Sodium Bicarbonate can effectively kill bacteria in your mouth. Research has shown that toothpaste containing large amounts of baking soda can reduce bad breath. Baking Soda can effectively kill bacteria in the mouth.
