Bad Breath Cures - 5 Tips For Curing Bad Breath

Bad breath cures are not something many people talk about, in fact save for hurtful comments made behind the back of someone with bad breath, there is rarely any real discussion on this all too common personal problem.
 
With that said, for those of that know the pain, embarrassment and frustration of trying to hide a breath problem we often do not want to talk about it, we just want to cure it as fast as possible. This article hopes to help people in just that situation by offering some advice on the best ways to treat and cure bad breath.
 
Malodorous breath is most often caused by an excessive amount of anaerobic bacteria living in the mouth. Usually these bacteria concentrate on the back of the tongue where they can live between the taste buds but they can also grow on the gum line and cheeks.
 
As these organisms respire they excrete waste products that contain foul smelling sulfur compounds that evaporate easily at room temperature and are therefore noticed on the breath. Therefore the primary way to cure bad breath is to attempt to limit or reduce the growth of these bacteria.
 
Fortunately there are a number of ways we can do this. The first is to limit the supply of food to these bacteria by flossing and brushing away particles of food that they could potentially feed on.
 
The second is to attack them directly by cleaning the area they colonize. The back of the tongue is the ideal breeding ground for the bacteria and they will multiply rapidly if left unchecked. We can evict these unwanted tenants by using a tongue scraper to clean the area thoroughly.
 
The third way to limit the bacterial growth is to keep the mouth moist. Unfortunately saliva secretion is just one of those things that decreases with age and the fact that most adults do not drink the recommended 2 liters of water per day and in fact often drink diuretic drinks like tea and coffee mean we are often dehydrated. Starting the day with a tall glass of water is not only good for our general health but one of the most effective bad breath cures.
 
The fourth way to fight a breath problem is to keep the mouth neutral. An acidic environment is the perfect condition for these bacteria to thrive and therefore something we want to avoid. Avoiding acidic foods and drinks like orange juice and sugary foods. You can reduce the acidity of the mouth by using regular baking soda as either a paste brushed on the teeth and tongue or as a solution mixed with water and gargled and swished about the mouth.
 
Although some people may tell you they have instant bad breath cures getting rid of the bacteria will take a little while. A quick but temporary solution to bad breath is to use mints or gum. If you do choose sugar free gum as it will prevent the mouth becoming acidic whilst also helping the flow of saliva.
