Crisp Fruits, Veggies Can Help Tame Bad Breath

Photo Courtesy - Getty ImagesThe medical term for it is halitosis, but you don't need to be a doctor to sniff out bad breath. The American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth twice a day to get rid of the food debris and plaque that often lead to bad breath. But what else can you do? Simple steps, like eating crisp fruits and vegetables, can help stop bad breath. Apples, celery, cucumbers and carrots are natural cleansers, according to Bad-Breath-Guide.com. One myth is that eating is the cause of bad breath. Eating stimulates saliva, which keeps your breath fresher. The exception would be foods such as onions and garlic, which smell to begin with and will stay on your breath until you brush. Once you cleanse your mouth of them by brushing and flossing, their bad smells are gone.

More Tips to Prevent Bad Breath:

  1. Drink plenty of water.
  2. Maintain good oral hygiene. This includes flossing. Toothbrushes cannot remove bacteria that gets trapped under your gums. Also, be sure to get your teeth cleaned by a dentist twice a year.
  3. Treat existing oral diseases.
  4. Clean your tongue while brushing your teeth.
  5. Use natural antibiotics.
  6. Switch from coffee to tea.
  7. Chew sugarless gum.
