How Do I Get Rid of Oral Bad Breath?
Tulsa, OK

Unfortunately, many people shy away from talking about it since it is embarrassing. But the best thing is that bad breath is preventable and treatable. Here are ways that you can eradicate bad breath:

Practice Good oral Hygiene

Brush your teeth after each meal to dislodge food particles that may have become stuck between your teeth and gums and to properly clean your teeth. Brushing your teeth on a regular basis keeps them white and combats bad breath and gum disease. Besides, make sure you floss regularly using denture cleaner or dental floss.

Stop Using Tobacco Products

The use of tobacco products such as cigars, pipes, and cigarettes can lead to foul breath, tooth discoloration, and other health problems. If you quit smoking and using tobacco, you will automatically get rid of bad breath.

Drink Plenty of Water

A dry mouth is one cause of bad breath. If your foul breath is due to a dry mouth, drink a lot of water to stimulate saliva. Fluids will also aid in removing food particles and bacteria before they pose any danger in the mouth. Avoid carbonated drinks since the additional sugar can attach to your teeth and gums, and when they combine with the meal residues, they lead to bad breath.

Be Careful of What You Eat

The body absorbs whatever we eat through the bloodstream and then resurfaces as we talk or breathe. Some ingredients, such as onions, garlic, and spicy dishes, can lead to bad breath. Ensure you consume more veggies and herbs like parsley, carrots, and celery since their high-water content can help remove debris from your mouth. Besides, you can chew sugar-free gum after meals to stimulate saliva and freshen your breath.
