Brushing and flossing are two of the most crucial elements for attacking bad breath. Bad breath is caused by microorganisms which live on our teeth and gums.
These bacteria feast on food particle left on our teeth creating unstable sulfur compounds (VSC). These sulfur compounds give breath its foul odor.
Brushing and flossing take away bacteria and the food bacteria feast on so that they can no longer create unpredictable sulfur compounds.
Unfortunately, many public do not brush long sufficient to remove bacteria from their teeth. It takes 2-3 minutes to brush all tooth surface yet most people spend less than a minute combing their teeth.
Causes of Bad Breath
Food. Eating foods contain volatile sulfur compound, like garlic and onions or some spices, is one of the most common causes of momentary halitosis.
After these foods are digest, the sulfur compounds are absorbed into the bloodstream, they're carried to the lungs and exit from the body through exhale, cause bad breath.
Poor dental hygiene- Infrequent or shocking brushing and flossing can leave food particles to decay inside the mouth. Their stop working can cause a foul odor.
Dental problems- Periodontal infection or an abscess at the base of a tooth can be the causes of halitosis due to microorganisms emit hydrogen sulfur vapors.
Dry mouth (xerostomia) - Saliva helps cleanse and moisten the mouth. A dry mouth enables the buildup of dead cells on tongue, gums and cheeks. These cells then decompose and cause odor.

Treatment of Bad Breath
The first step in cleansing is debridement meaning scraping of the tongue! Due to the soft, uneven, tufted exterior of the tongue using a toothbrush for this purpose is next to useless.
To prove this point brush your language and then follow up by scrap your tongue with a tongue scraper and notice the outstanding material lift by the brush which speak volumes about its incompetence.
The tongue scrapper much is somewhat flexible to follow the contours of the tongue yet rippled, ridges or "rake-like" in profile to do a proper job.
Several passes of this tool scarped lightly over the tongue two times a day will effectively remove the bulk of evil-smelling debris, food, and bacterial residue.
Home Remedies for Bad Breath
1. Brush your teeth with boiling soda first, then rinse out your mouth with plain or warm, salty water. Follow this with regular toothpaste and you are on your way.
2. Floss your teeth daily. The gunk (plaque) flanked by your teeth may be causing your bad breath.
3. Scrape your tongue with a spoon or one of those especially designed tongue scrapers. Get as far back on your language as possible to scrape off the antisocial bacteria.
4. Rinse your mouth out with a little lemon or lime juice assorted with water.
5. Brush your tongue when you brush your teeth and after meals too. The tongue is like a lint catcher and it has to be clean off every so often to get that nice smell to come through.
6. Chew on some fresh aromatic plant or alfalfa, particularly after eating garlic, onions, or fish. The chlorophyll in these two plants kills the unpleasant bacteria in your oral cavity.
7. Drink green tea. And it doesn't hurt to hiss it around in your mouth before you swallow it: it will kill the detrimental bacteria in your mouth.
8. Avoid eating cheese, milk, products contain yeast, garlic, onions, and any other odorous food.
