Aug 30, 2008
There are many a people all over the world suffering from the universal disease of bad breath. Bad breath is responsible for the embarrassment and destroys relationships with family and friends. It may flatten your confidence and self esteem and may even cause severe depression.

If you keep teeth, tongue, and mouth clean, you will not suffer from the problem of bad breath. You should take all care in cleaning your teeth by using proper toothbrush and adopting correct brushing technique. We should also follow the good oral hygiene rules.

Causes of bad breath
Bad breath may be due to a number of reasons such as bad dental hygiene, bacteria in mouth, infection, diabetes, drugs, gum disease, heavy metal accumulation, liver disease, smoking, sulfur, and tooth decay.

Bad breath can also emanate from problems with the stomach that is why bad breathe returns shortly after brushing the teeth. Vomiting is a defensive reaction by your body to clear the digestive tract. There are a variety of causes, including overindulgence in food or alcohol; as an adverse effect of many drugs.

Bad breath is due to anaerobic bacteria that live within the surface of the tongue and throat, that produce smelly sulfur compounds when they come in contact with proteins, which cause bad breath.

Plaque on the tongue can cause bad breath where bacteria can grow. If you do not clean your mouth after consuming alcoholic drinks, tobacco chewing, cigarette smoking, and foods like onions, garlic, etc. it can contribute to bad breadth. A deficiency of vitamin B and/or zinc may also become the cause of your bad breath.

Cures for bad breath
One should brush your teeth in the morning, in the evening, and after every meal, especially after consuming milk products, fish and meat. One should also brush your tongue along with your teeth regularly.

We should always wash the tongue with baking soda dissolved in warm water to reduce the acidity in your mouth making a less-friendly environment for the bacteria to grow. One should also brush and floss teeth regularly.

Clean and replace your toothbrush regularly. One should also avoid mouthwashes with dyes and alcohol. Mouthwash containing cetylpyridinium chloride, chlorine dioxide, sodium chlorite or zinc may serve as an antibacterial agent, which can control the number of anaerobic bacteria in mouth.

Parsley, coriander, basil, rosemary, thyme, wintergreen, cardamom seeds, cinnamon bark, clove, fennel or anise seeds are great breath fresheners. One should duly chew any of the herbs slowly and allow the saliva to build up in your mouth.

One should always rinse your mouth before sleeping with a glass of water with the juice of half a lemon added. The most important thing one should take care of is to drink plenty of water throughout the day.
