Its a Big shame seeing people turn their faces away from you or bringing out their handkerchief when you are talking to them. This can get anyone embarrassed in public, bad breathe aka mouth odour (halitosis), is somewhere up on the list.
Often the odour is caused by bacteria present below the gumline and on the back of the tongue or many different conditions, including disorders in the nasal cavity, sinuses, throat, lungs, esophagus, stomach or elsewhere, says the Wikipedia.
But whether it’s a fleeting case of morning breath or a lingering bout with halitosis, everyone has bad breath sometimes and we all would like to get rid of it…
1. Brush Your Mouth As Your Mom Taught You! Yes, you should try to follow the morning and evening toothpaste-on-toothbrush in your mouth routine. You cannot skip brushing your teeth and expect fresh breath. You just have to brush, either with pako or smooth ash, just brush and save us your bad breath! Remember to clean your tongue too!
2. Keep Your Mouth Wet! If your mouth is too dry, the risk of bad breathe resulting is very high. It doesn’t matter if it is day or night. Your mouth needs saliva constantly because it is a natural antibacterial mouth cleanser. Saliva contains oxygen which deters the growth of bacteria. So keep bad breathe at bay by keeping your mouth salivated all day – stay wet in the oral cavity by drinking a lot of water. It has been said that sucking a sweet or chewing gum can also help stimulate saliva production.
