Help I Have Bad Breath?Many people have bad breath without even realizing it. Sometimes you could eat something that gives you bad breath without even realizing it. And most often people around you try to be polite and won’t tell you that your breath smells.

There are certain things that cause bad breath. These tips can help.

Avoid Garlic

Garlic is a great ingredient to add to many home cooked dishes. But garlic tends to stay with you all day. You can avoid garlic to prevent bad breath. But eating garlic is not bad for you.  In fact garlic can help regulate metabolism, your blood sugar and even your mood.  So if you do eat it, avoid eating alot.

If you do eat garlic you can brush your teeth immediately after. Some dentists recommend chewing sugar free gum after eating foods that can cause bad breath.

Visit The Dentist

Many people have chronic bad breath without even realizing it. Many people also avoid visiting the dentist regularly. This can be for a variety of reasons. The most common reason is fear of visiting the dentists.  But when people skip dentist appointments, bacteria and plaque can build up and cause bad smelling breath. One common way to know if you have bad breath is to lick the back of your hand and if it smells than you have bad breath.

When you visit the dentist, they can help prevent cavities and oral health problems.

Floss Daily

People, who don’t floss daily, often have bad breath and it can also be traced back to not taken daily care of your teeth. If your teeth hurt, you could visit your dentist.  Flossing regularly is an important part of your overall health care routine. For people who do not floss regularly plaque and bacteria can build up in between the teeth, which can root and start to smell bad.
