How to Get Rid of Bad Breath

Bad Breath          Bad breath, also known as Halitosis, is a condition of excessive bacteria in the mouth and on the tongue that causes a bad odor to be emitted. It has been said that close to one quarter of the population has some type of bad breath. Getting rid of bad breath is will not only make you feel better on a daily basis, it will also improve your oral hygiene and make you more attractive to the opposite sex. Follow the steps below to get rid of bad breath once and for all.

Step 1

Mouthwash Use an antibacterial mouthwash to kill mouth bacteria and help get rid of bad breath. Most popular brands of mouthwash contain alcohol in them which is antiseptic and kills bacteria. If you do not want to use a mouthwash with alcohol in it choose a one that contains cetylpyridinium chloride. Cetylpyridinium chloride has been shown to kill oral bacteria and is as effective as alcohol based mouthwashes.

Step 2

Use a tongue scraper to regularly scrape the back of your tongue. Most bad breath bacteria congregate on the tongue especially in the back. Regular tongue scraping will go a long way in curing your bad breath. If you can’t scrape your tongue then it is suggested you use your toothbrush to brush the top and back of your tongue with toothpaste. This will be almost as effective as using the tongue scraper.

Step 3

FlossFloss at least once a day. Flossing will dislodge food between the teeth which will allow the mouthwash easier access to the bacteria causing bad breath hiding between the teeth.

Step 4

Drink FluidsDrink fluids all throughout the day. Do not go more than an hour without sipping on some water or other fluids. Drinking fluids will help to flush the bacteria so it does not pool in one area in the mouth.

Step 5

Breath MintsChew on gum and breath mints throughout the day. In combination with the steps above, if you use breathmints as well you should eliminate your bad breath throughout the day. The key is all steps must be taken together, not one or two.
