Bad breath is a problem around the world. Of course, when it’s your bad breath, it doesn’t seem like a common worldwide problem. It’s your bad breath. Just remember that you are not alone (or maybe you do).
The most common causeof bad breath is because of poor dental hygiene. Another cause of bad breath, especially morning breath, is having a dry mouth. When you wake up in the morning your mouth has naturally dried out and you’ll notice that you have a film on your teeth and on your cheeks. Maybe even your tongue. During the night the bacteria in your mouth left plaque. This is why brushing your teeth at night, before you go to bed is a good idea. It eliminates a lot of the food particles from your mouth so that the bacteria don’t have so much to digest while you sleep. It also helps at night to scrape your tongue and floss, and use mouthwash as well.
There are many other possible reasons that you have bad breath, besides dental hygiene. Bad breath can be caused by a post nasal drip or sinus problems. When your sinuses drain down the back of your throat, they get on to the very back part of your tongue. That drainage consists of dead sinus cells, blood cells, and other waste products produced by the body. These waste products are rich in protein and are very nutritious for the bacteria that live in your mouth. These bacteria consume, digest and excrete. Those excretions can cause that odor. Also, when these bacteria have this consistent supply of nutrients they thrive and growing more bacteria in your mouth. Luckily it’s easy to cure that post nasal drip.
If you’re not sure what to do about a post nasal drip see your doctor or dentist and they can help you with a solution
The key point is to keep your mouth clean of as much bacteria or food for bacteria as you possibly can. Using a tongue scraper really helps, scrape your tongue from the very back. .Tongue scrapers can be found at any pharmacy. You can also just use a toothbrush, gently. Scraping the tongue is a big step to cure your bad breath. So stick with it.
What if the bad breath problem is someone else’s? Whether you tell them or not is up to you. Some people feel comfortable with telling another that their breath is bad. Others do not. You can always hint by offering them mints or gum when you’re talking to them, and of course take one for yourself as well. This might be enough of a hint that they have a problem.
