Sharing buttons:

fifteen daily do's don'ts to avoid bad


bad breath is a very touchy and personal

question nobody wants to discuss it

willingly but what is left to do if

there is a date or an important business

meeting pending time to face the music

dental hygiene is important but brushing

your teeth twice a day and chewing gum

may not be enough even after such daily

routine you may still have bad breath

but wait no need to panic just yet

there are scientifically proven cases of

what may be the reasons behind bad

breath let's find the root of the

problem we at bright side have done some

research and put together a list of

dental hygiene do's and don'ts perhaps

all you need to do is to adjust just one

or two of your habits

number 15 drink plenty of water

water is never a bad idea a sufficient

amount of water stimulates the flow of

your saliva and helps to avoid

dehydration which is often a reason for


that's how scientists call bad breath

here is some simple and unusual advice

make it a habit to have a few sips of

water every time someone calls your name

at school or work

number 14 don't drink too much coffee


this liquid of life we know that a sip

of it seems vitally important in the

morning but don't be too keen on this

drink did you know that caffeine could

slow down saliva production and

therefore dry out your mouth this will

lead to that breath odor it's better to

drink a cup of tea during your lunch and

dinner one more piece of advice for

spicy food lovers sipping green tea can

also help to neutralize the scent of


no more tough choices between enjoying

your favorite dish or an embarrassment

free talk with the boss

number thirteen clean your dentures

cheering for your dentures is as

important as caring for your teeth so

you should treat them accordingly

practice the same or a hygiene that you

would with your original teeth make the

habit of cleaning them at night to get

rid of bacterial build-up from food

number 12

remember to floss after every meal this

is dental floss yeah you should neglect

your gums any food particles would stay

in between your teeth for too long a

time acted in the same way as if you

left your trash beautiful they stink the

bacteria from food go deep below the gum

line and may lead not only to bad breath

but also to an infection

that's why flossing is no less important

than brushing your teeth

what is more that helps to remove the

plaque which potentially leads to the

decay of your teeth and the disease of

your gums besides it's not a big deal

just a couple of minutes but the result

is worth the time you spend on this


number eleven change your toothbrush

every three months time flies when we

are busy and we may not notice how

quickly our toothbrush gets old an old

toothbrush may be as unsafe to use as

simply having more bacteria to your

mouth so change your toothbrush

regularly do it once every three or four

months depending on how frayed the

bristles are this time may vary for

example if you wear brackets it will

happen sooner remember one more

essential thing change your toothbrush

after a bout of the flu so you don't

bring those old germs back to your body

number 10 do not neglect your time

when you brush your teeth in the morning

remember to clean your tongue with the

tongue scrape you won't believe it but

it has been shown to reduce odor by up

to as much as 70% how about this

recommendation that can make your life

much simpler to kill two birds with one

stone you can get a toothbrush with a

tongue and cheek cleaner in the back

number nine go for alcohol-free


many brands of Mao threads contain up to

27% of alcohol in their ingredients it

dries out your mouth as a result as we

have already learned it brings an

unpleasant smell

after that minty freshness wears off

within an hour another danger of

mouthwash containing alcohol can appear

if it is used by teenagers let's admit

it everybody accidentally swallows a bit

or more of this liquid from time to time

but for schoolchildren it's not only

unpleasant but also unhealthy so next

time you shop for mouthwash and check

the label thoroughly to make sure

alcohol is not listed by the way pay

attention to the fact that mouthwash

containing chlorhexidine may also stain

your teeth

number eight avoid Sugarman's

sugar is normally added to the mints

people are so eager to take after a meal

you do so to freshen your breath and you

think that you've done the right thing

but unfortunately the situation is quite

the contrary sugar in these mints is

exactly what helps the bacteria in your

mouth to grow an acid informed as a

result is proved to eat away your teeth

surface how terrible is that it might

also make your bad breath worse once the

gum or mint is gone thus we can conclude

that sweetened fresheners are not for

the long-run and are better off left out

of your mouth if you must use mints opt

for the sugar-free type

number seven be aware of the medication

you are taking

this is your mr. chance after this there

is no time

such medications as antidepressants

painkillers and antihistamines may

suppress saliva flow and can be the

reason for a

so remember to ask your doctor about the

side effects of any prescribed


number six check for tonsil stones

if you are not aware tonsil stones are a

mix of debris and bacteria that sit in

the back of the throat

they look like white spots or bumps and

smell nasty might have never heard of

them but in fact they are pretty common

for example research conducted in France

has shown that more than 6% of all the

examined patients suffered from this

problem and that's a lot to prevent them

from happening make sure you follow a

proper hygiene routine and visit your

dentist regularly if you've gotten to

know that you already have them your

further course of actions will depend on

the size of the stones salted water

gargling using cotton swabs drinking

lemon juice or eating raw garlic can

help with small tonsil stones however if

they are big there's nothing to do but

rely on medically treatment

number-5 knott your scales

is getting fatter we can't stop

another risk factor for halitosis is

obesity Tel Aviv University researchers

have published a study that has found a

direct link between being overweight and

having bad breath the more obese you are

the more likely your breath will not be

as pleasant as you'd like what is the

connection it probably depends on the

diet of people with excess weight it may

promote dry mouth condition

number four would say no to a low-carb

diet you're any thinner you wouldn't


those who are keen on Atkins and low

carb diets will recognize the word

ketosis this is a process which forces

the body to burn stored fats and

proteins for energy due to the lack of

carbs the thing is that if your diet is

too strict your body will start to

produce such chemicals as ketones they

are released in your breasts and exactly

this process causes odor so just to

sweeten the pill if your breath stinks

while you are following the Atkins diet

you're probably doing it very well

were three we consider your smoking


all the sources of mass media keep

telling everybody who's ready to listen

but smoking causes cancer and fatally

damages the lungs

but this danger seems vague and distant

is so not every person is ready to give

up a cigarette with a cup of morning

coffee what if the problem caused by

smoking is more tangible did you know

that it can result in damaged gums

stains on the teeth and bad breath

smoking dries out your mouth while

nicotine tends to squeeze blood vessels

as a result you don't receive a healthy

amount of saliva it's not too difficult

to quit this habit with a bit of extra

incentive try using nicotine patches at

first or visit your doctor to ask for

their recommendations the hardest is to


number two eat more apples and other

healthy food

when you crunch celery apples carrots or

similar food it removes the remains of

food stock between the teeth what is

more it rids them of bacteria that live

on them more benefit is the fact that

these products are very low in calories

and rich in vitamins so you can eat as

much as you wish and not worry about

gaining a couple of extra pounds

number one visit your doctor

if you have tried everything followed

all the recommendations but bad breath

still bothers you probably it's time to

visit the doctor your condition might be

caused by some illness for example a

problem with the stomach
