Getting to the Root of Your Bad Breath

Bad Breath

There can be no denying the fact that bad breath is unpleasant, embarrassing, and a real problem for those suffering from it. The self-consciousness that can result from halitosis is something that nobody should have to accept, particularly when effective solutions do exist. The key is to look beyond simple masking techniques for bad breath and explore any systemic causes of the issue so that they can be promptly addressed.

For a chronic problem with bad breath, you should try at-home dental care techniques: regular tooth brushing, frequent flossing, and gargling with baking soda and peroxide. You also need routine cleanings at a local family dentistry clinic. However, if these methods are not effective, your diet may be a potential source of the issue. 

Most family dentistry professionals will agree that adding more carrots, celery, apples, and other crunchy produce into your daily diet is a great way to combat bad breath. Not only do these foods work to eliminate plaque buildup that can cause bad breath, they also help you produce bacteria-battling saliva.

Making sure you drink plenty of water each day is another simple way to fight bad breath, since dry mouth and dehydration are common causes of halitosis. Insufficient water intake can lead to oral bacteria, which results in unpleasant breath. Drinking lots of water helps your body produce saliva, which is a natural bacteria fighter.

An unhealthy digestive system can also cause bad breath. If you know that you have toxic build-up in your gut, you could consider probiotics as a potential solution. Using probiotic flora or incorporating probiotic-rich food such as yogurt into your diet can help solve your halitosis problem.

The buildup of toxins, heavy metals, and yeast in the body can also lead to chronic bad breath, and for that reason, the entire system ought to be flushed with regularity. To do this, you may choose to try stinging nettle tea or stinging nettle supplements. This herb has been shown to boost the lymphatic system and facilitate the expulsion of uric acid. This all serves to attack the foundational causes of bad breath.

Having a zinc deficiency is the main cause of halitosis in a large number of people, as it is a mineral that helps eliminate and neutralize bacteria in the mouth. Your family dentistry practitioner may recommend oral zinc supplements or suggest that you eat foods rich in zinc to fight bad breath.
