Bad Breath Treatments | Bad Breath Remedies

Bad Breath:

Bad breath is breath that has an unpleasant odor. It's also known as halitosis. This odor can occur from time to time, or it can be long lasting, depending on the cause. Bad Breath is usually caused by the breakdown of proteins by bacteria somewhere in the mouth. Bad breath is not contagious, meaning you cannot catch it from someone else. Chronic bad breath, known as Halitosis, does not come from the stomach. The only odor that comes from the stomach is when you burp. Food eaten such as garlic and spicy foods once absorbed into the body can release odor through the lungs when you breathe.

Bad Breath Remedies:

* Brush your teeth in the morning, in the evening, and after every meal, specially after consuming milk products, fish and meat.

* Wash the tongue with baking soda dissolved in warm water to reduce the acidity in your mouth making a less friendly environment for the bacteria to grow.

* Drink plenty of water throughout the day.

* Talk to your periodontist about gum and teeth problems that might be the cause of bad breath.

* Rinse your mouth before sleeping with a glass of water with the juice of half a lemon added.

* Drink green tea. And it doesn't hurt to swish it around in your mouth before you swallow it: it will kill the harmful bacteria in your mouth.

* Change your toothbrush every month. Bacteria build up on your brush and you are putting those bad ones back into your mouth every time you brush your teeth.

* Use mouthwash with high chlorophyll content.


  1. I had disgusting breath for years. I had no friends and even family keep me at a distance. I was flossing brushing and rinsing everyday but still had bad breath. I spent thousands on all kinds of products claiming to stop bad breath but still had bad breath. I came across a site called OralTech Labs and it gave me my first insight into my problem. After I did all the advice in the eBook it identified Post Nasal Drip as the primary issue with eating and cleaning as the oral problem. So I was happily surprised when my brother asked the following week why my breath didn’t smell any more, I told him what I’d done he’s like thank god for that book! OralTech Labs. Now 6 months later I have my first girlfriend and worked up enough courage to tell her about what I was like just 1 year ago. She said I smelt better than any other boyfriend she’d had. Music to my ears! Thanks OralTech Labs!

  2. It is awkward to have bad breath. It is important to know what causes it and how it can be prevent or cured. My younger brother, Mark suffered from halitosis (bad breath) a few weeks ago, I brought him with me during my comprehensive oral exam at the Hilton Head Dentists clinic last week. The dentist examined Mark and found out that he has an underlying gum disease. Thankfully, we visited the clinic and we have identified what causes his halitosis. I am grateful that you have provided useful information about halitosis and the possible remedies available for this condition. Again, thanks.
