Despite the fact that almost everyone brushes their teeth, bad breath is quite common. And often a person himself does not feel that his breath is stale and unpleasant for others. There are many reasons for this - a sore stomach, caries, inflammation in the airways. By eliminating the disease, you will get rid of the unpleasant odor, but often the problem lies in the development of putrefactive bacteria in the oral cavity as a result of poor hygiene.
A huge number of bacteria accumulate on the tongue and gums, which form a whitish coating and, as a result of their vital activity, release sulfur compounds. The bacteria feed on food that remains between the teeth, as well as dying cells and protein components in saliva. Therefore, it is very important to remove food debris after each meal. To do this, you need to not only rinse your mouth, brush your teeth, but also use dental floss or flosser. Only then can the unpleasant odor be eliminated or significantly reduced. Since bacteria also accumulate on the tongue, especially on the back of the tongue, clean it regularly. There are special brushes for this, but you can also use a regular toothbrush. The cleansing of the tongue begins from the distant areas with light movements with slight pressure. When doing this, use toothpastes that contain antibacterial substances, which can help reduce bad breath and traditional medicine. • Brew a tablespoon of a mixture of herbs (wormwood, strawberries, chamomile medicinal) with a glass of boiling water, cover and after half an hour rinse your mouth with strained warm liquid. • Pour a tablespoon of dry peppermint (you can take 15-20 fresh leaves) with a glass of boiling water, after insisting strain and rinse your mouth. • Make an infusion of oak bark, for this in a water bath or in a thermos, prepare an infusion of 25 g of bark and a glass of hot water. Use as a gargle: When used regularly throughout the month, bad breath can be significantly reduced. If you need to urgently freshen your breath, then chewing gum will help, you can also drink fruit juice or eat an apple. You can get rid of bad breath only by observing all of the above rules in combination. But if it is still present, then you should pay a visit to the dentist.
