Halitosis or bad breath is a growing problem worldwide. Most of the age groups, whether young or old, suffer from halitosis. This article will show different ways to cure halitosis.
Before we continue, there are a few things to note here. Most people would say to avoid carbohydrates, sugars, ice cream and carbonated drinks, but this is absolutely not true. New research shows that food contributes less to bad breath, and bacteria, bleeding gums and dry mouth are the biggest contributors. Mouthwashes can also be harmful because they kill almost all bacteria in the mouth, but we must remember that not all bacteria are harmful and some are also beneficial. Other health problems like diabetes and sinus problems also cause halitosis.
Below are the different ways we can cure halitosis.
Gargling with salt water
Gargling with salt water kills most of the harmful sulfur-producing bacteria. These bacteria are actually the main cause of halitosis.
Have avocado regularly
Eat avocado every day or at least twice a week. Avocado prevents or cures intestinal breakdown that can cause bad breath.
chew guava fruit
Guava eliminates bad odors from our gums. Unripe guava is actually more suitable for this purpose. Guava not only helps eliminate bad odors but also heals mouth sores that also lead to halitosis.
drink plenty of water
This is something that most people neglect. Water can actually get rid of bad breath very quickly, and remember to drink 8-10 glasses of water every day, most importantly before you sleep and after you wake up. Water helps cure dry mouth, which is one of the main causes of bad breath.
brush your teeth daily
Brushing your teeth daily is essential, it not only prevents cavities but can also freshen your mouth and eliminate bad odour. Brushing three times a day is very effective.
Chew mint leaves or mint gum. Mint leaves are extremely useful because they destroy the bacteria that cause halitosis and can also act as a mouth freshener. It is most effective if taken in a liquid form such as peppermint tea.
