Anyone can beat and fix bad breath with these steps.

Bad breath can be deal breaker and embarrassing. There are 6 easy ways to beat and fix bad breath.

1.    Oral Hygiene

The first and easiest fix is good oral hygiene, brush and floss at least twice daily. Neglecting to do so will result in cavities, tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath. Visiting the dentist twice a year for a checkup and professional cleaning is also a must for minty fresh breath.

2.    Clean your tongue

 A dirty tongue is a definite source of bad breath. Tongue scrapers remove the coating on the tongue where bacteria can bread.

 3.    Use mouthwash

Make sure next trip to the shops you read the components of your mouthwash and use an anti-microbial mouthwash that contains Chlorhexidine.

 4.   Promote saliva

Saliva has an important role in removing particles that cause bad breath. You can promote your saliva by chewing sugar free gum or mints.

 5.   Diet

A low-carb, high protein diet may be the cause of bad breath since it causes the body to burn stored body fat.  As the fat burns, chemicals called ketones accumulate in the body and are released in your breath. Since this is a metabolic problem originating in your stomach the only solution is to change your diet.

 6.    Drink tea

Black tea and green tea have polyphenols, a chemical element that can prevent the growth of the bacteria responsible for bad breath.  Boil that kettle and make some tea.
