Bad breath or, as it is called in medicine, halitosis can be divided into two types of education: pathological and physiological. And, if you can cope with the causes of the second on your own, then with pathological halitosis you will have to seek help from a specialist.
One of the most common causes of bad breath is poor hygiene. In addition to the obligatory two-time brushing of your teeth, do not forget to carry out the procedure for cleaning the surface of the tongue. To do this, you can use an ordinary teaspoon or purchase a special drug at your nearest pharmacy. Also, many toothbrushes already have bristles for cleaning the tongue. Cleanse with light, gentle movements, moving from the root to the tip of the tongue.
Use a floss floss after every meal to clean the spaces between your teeth. This will remove food debris and interdental plaque.
Use rinse aids regularly. This tool can be purchased at a specialized store, or you can prepare it yourself. To do this, you will need: 1 glass of boiling water, 1 tablespoon of strawberry leaves, 1 tablespoon of sage, 1 tablespoon of chamomile, 1 tablespoon of mint.
Brew the mixture of herbs with a glass of boiling water and leave for 30-40 minutes, covered with a tight lid. Strain the resulting infusion and use it to rinse after each meal.
An infusion prepared on the basis of oak bark is no less effective. To do this, you will need: 1 glass of boiling water, 1 tablespoon of oak bark. Boil the herb for 30-40 minutes. After that, strain the infusion and apply 3-4 times a day after meals. Oak bark well cleans the tonsils from plaque, which very often serve as a source of unpleasant odor, due to the large accumulation of infectious components.
Be more careful when choosing a toothpaste. First, be sure to read the composition. Alcohol-free paste is suitable for you, as it dries out the mucous surface of the oral cavity, and this only intensifies the unpleasant odor. Secondly, try to buy toothpaste containing antibacterial agents. These components reduce the activity of an unpleasant odor through chemical reactions.
