Four Ways to Fight Stinky Breathe

What is the most important thing to gloss a personality?  A stylish dress? NO! Wear a glossy make up? NO! An elegant pair of sandals? NO! Then what? It is how you smell from head to toe. Your bad breath is one painful thing your family, friends, and colleagues have to deal with without making any complaint. The fact is that smelling bad is even more humiliating and socially unacceptable than the leftovers of a spinach salad spotted across a toothy chortle.

Considering the stats that more than 40% of people are suffering from bad breath, it is understandable how common it is and how important it is to treat. And for remedy, it is important to know the root cause of halitosis (Bad breath). Interestingly, studies show that about 80% of bad breath comes from an oral source. Persistent bad breath is a strong sign that something is wrong with your teeth or gums. It can be a sign of gum disease. No matter what the cause is, the proper care is needed to avoid any traumatic or embarrassing situations.

Here are some proven ways to fight with bad breath:

  1. Proper Cleansing

Cleansing is important. Brushing your teeth two times a day can help you get rid of any left-over food bacteria and attain optimal oral hygiene.

Select a toothbrush with soft bristles. Hard bristles can damage your gums. Use toothpaste which has salt and mint. Salt elevate cleansing process, and mint can help you smell great.

  1. Drink plenty of water

Drink as much water as you can to avoid dry mouth. Dry mouth, without a pinch of doubt, is difficult to deal with and is one of the many reasons behind your stinky breath.

Drinking at least 4 litres of water a day can help you stay hydrated and keep odour under control by washing away remaining food particles and bacteria, which is the primary cause of halitosis. Moreover, it helps your body to get rid of all toxins and makes you feel physically and emotionally active.

  1. Gargling with water and baking soda solution

Along with regular brushing and drinking plenty of water, try a mouthwash rinse made from chemical-free products. Prepare a solution by mixing a teaspoon of baking soda in a cup of water. You can also add a few drops of antimicrobial peppermint essential oil for further prevention. Gargles this solution and make sure not to swallow it. The regular use can help prevent bad smell.

  1. Visit your dentist

If nothing works, get an appointment with your dentist and let him know about your situation. He will determine the root cause and treat you accordingly. He may recommend a special mouthwash to control the growth of the bacteria or perform deep gum cleaning to eliminate stubborn bacteria and plaque between your teeth.

Bad odour can tear down all the personality of an individual. Therefore, it is imperative to take every possible step to get a fresh smell that can help you interact well with people without any embarrassment.
