Everyone in the morning gets up with breath odor. This happens because bacteria increase during the night and there is no continuous flow of saliva to get wash it away as it is the case during waking hours. That is why the first thing we do in after we wake up is brushing the teeth and flossing. Eating foods such as onions, garlic and spiced food can also be a reason for bad breath. This is also easily solved with a tooth brush and tooth paste or some gum. But, if it continues throughout the day and if brushing the teeth doesn’t help, then you should definitely take care of the health of your mouth.
However, people are sometimes not aware of this problem. The experts confirm that there are various ways to find out if you are having a permanent problem with your breath. The first way is taking a piece of gauze and wipe it on your tongue. If you notice that the gauze comes out with a yellow color or with an unpleasant smell, it is a sign of high levels of sulfides in your body. Sulfides is actually the cause for the occurrence of bad breath or in medical terms, halitosis. You can also test your breath if you lick the back of your hand and smell it after 10 minutes. If you have high amount of sulfides, sulfur salts will stay and they will smell. Another way is to floss your teeth at the back and smell the floss.
But, don’t panic. We promised you a simple solution to this common problem so we are going to reveal it. You will only need one ingredient. Can you guess?
It’s baking soda. It is the most natural alternative to freshen up your breath. It acts by reducing the effects of built-up acids stuck to your teeth and tongue. We are going to present you two techniques of using this ingredient.
The first one is to dissolve a half-teaspoon of baking soda in water and swish it around like you do when mouthwash.
The second one is to damp your tooth brush and then dip it to the baking soda, before brushing up.
Try one of these treatments and you will convince yourself personally of the positive effects. The best thing is that these methods are permanent solutions.
