Nature's Help For You Bad Breath

Aug 30, 2008
Bad breath can extremely be embarrassing for anybody socializing with people. When you've been a little too close to someone with bad breath for your own comfort it is much more embarrassing. Trying to avoid breathing bad too deeply when near a loved one is especially is uncomfortable. The morning is perhaps the most normal time to notice bad breath.

It's a common problem and you may have heard it referred to as morning breath. Most of the time bad breath originates especially in the mouth. Bacteria in our mouth cause it. This bacterium is breaking down food debris, which creates by-products called volatile sulfur compounds, which emit a smell similar to rotten eggs. Because this bacteria needs an environment free of oxygen, they will live in areas that are difficult to reach-such as pockets around teeth; the grooves in the tongue and especially on the back of the tongue.

Treatment of bad breath
The first step in cleansing is debridement meaning scraping of the tongue! Due to the soft, uneven, tufted surface of the tongue using a toothbrush for this purpose is next to useless. To prove this point brush your tongue and then follow up by scrapping your tongue with a tongue scraper and notice the remaining material lift by the brush that speaks volumes about its inefficiency.

The tongue scrapper much is somewhat flexible to follow the contours of the tongue yet rippled, ridges or rake-like in profile to do a proper job. Several passes of this instrument scarped lightly over the tongue twice a day will effectively remove the majority of evil-smelling debris, food, and bacterial residue.

Most over the counter products do not eliminate bad breath. They only hide it temporarily. Most mouthwashes contain alcohol which dries and damages soft oral tissue and ultimately leads to even faster formation of odor causing bacteria and gum tissue damage which makes bad breath worse ADA reports that any mouth rinses containing more than twenty-five percent alcohol can increase the risk of oral and pharyngeal caner by about fifty percent.

Tea helps in fighting with the bad breath
Compounds found in tea can stop the growth of bacteria that cause bad breath, Polyphenols, chemical components of tea, prevent both the growth of bacteria responsible for bad breath and the bacteria's production of malodorous compounds.

It is caused by foul-smelling volatile sulphur compounds, like hydrogen sulphide, produced by anaerobic bacteria that thrive in environments lacking oxygen, such as the back of the tongue and deep gum pockets. The polyphenols found in tea include chemicals called catechins and the aflavins. Catechins are found in both green and black teas, while the aflavins are found predominantly in black tea.
