Six Real-Life Remedies for Halitosis

Halitosis is another name for bad breath and it’s an embarrassing problem for many. But the following oral hygiene habits can help you keep your breath at its best.

  1. Brush and Floss Every Day

The two most effective ways to help halitosis are daily brushing and flossing. See, failing to practice these oral hygiene basics can cause food and plaque to remain on your teeth and gums, which results in bad breath and serious dental problems. That’s why family dentistry specialists recommend brushing and flossing two times a day for two to three minutes at a time. 

  1. Scrub Your Tongue

Cleaning your tongue can effectively decrease bacteria built up on your tongue that emit bad breath odors. By brushing your tongue with a toothbrush or tongue scraper, you can remove this bacteria and avoid halitosis.

  1. Use a Mouth Rinse

Boost your daily oral hygiene routine with an antibacterial mouth rinse that helps reduce plaque and freshen breath.

  1. Drink Plenty of Water

Family dentistry experts say that one of the simplest ways to reduce halitosis is simply by drinking water throughout the day. That’s because it helps rinse away lingering food in your mouth, which attracts odor-causing bacteria. It also keeps your mouth moist to prevent a case of dry mouth, which is a common side effect of some medical conditions and medications.

  1. Have a Healthy Diet

You know that pungent foods such as garlic and onions can cause bad breath, but did you know that choosing healthy foods can help you avoid halitosis? Try to include these in your daily diet to keep your breath at its best:

  • Dark green and orange vegetables
  • Fruit of all kinds
  • Proteins such as fish, poultry, lean meats, beans, and nuts
  • Whole grains
  1. Get Regular Professional Dental Care

Just as important as healthy oral hygiene at home is seeing an affordable dentist twice a year for professional check-ups and cleanings. See, many cases of bad breath are caused by serious dental issues. If you experience any of these problems, have them treated right away by an affordable dentist.
