Some Of The Causes Of Bad Breath And What You Can Do About It

Aug 17, 2007
Bad breath can be very embarrassing. Nobody wants to have bad breath, much less smell someone else's bad breath. Truth of the matter is I bet everyone person has experienced both sides of this. Several things such as smoking, what you have to drink, dieting, and illness like a cold can cause you to have less than desirable breath. The good news is there are things you can do to help.

First you will probably want to make sure you are brushing, flossing, and rinsing on a daily basis. It is hard to keep your breath fresh if you have a dirty mouth. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing will make sure you get any leftover food particles out of your teeth. It will also help keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Although this is a great way to start and end your day, it does not help in the middle of the day. The fresh breath you have after brushing, flossing, and rinsing does not last all day long, especially if you are like most people and have something to eat or drink. The foods and drinks we consume during the day can leave our breath needing a little freshening.

Once again there are things we can do to help. One choice you have is gum. After eating or smoking or before you are going to meet someone you may want to chew a piece of gum to freshen your breath. The problem with gum is that it is not appropriate for every situation, and it loses its flavor quickly. If you are going to dinner you don't want to have to worry about what to do with your gum when the food arrives. You also don't want to be smacking your gum while trying to talk to someone, not very professional. Gum can also make you bloated because you tend to swallow air while chewing this breath freshener.

Another choice would be the breath spray or mints. The problem with breath spray is that it is not convenient to use in public. What if you miss your mouth and spray yourself or someone else. This would be just as embarrassing as having bad breath. The drawback with mints is that they take so long to dissolve, and they have calories that you may not want or need.

The last choice we have is the breath strip. How handy are these little breath fresheners? The breath strip is little enough to carry with you everywhere, but strong enough to kill your bad breath. These little strips are easy to pop, and discrete enough to do in public, they dissolve quickly, and leave you with great smelling breath. You can find many different flavors to suit your tastes as well. So, next time you need freshen your breath, reach for a breath strip.
