Posted by DR. LOUIS PAULERIO on Dec 15 2021, 02:35 PM

Have you experienced an uncomfortable feeling of having a bad breath? Many Americans spend a lot on mouthwash, mints, etc., that they use to avoid any awkward situation around colleagues, friends, and family. The remedy for your bad breath might already be available in your nearest local store or even cupboards.

Have a look at some of the bad breath remedies, and you can give a shot:

1. Rinse Your Mouth With Saltwater 

In order to have a fresh breath naturally and instantly, use salt water to rinse your mouth. All you have to do is add some salt to a glass of warm water, mix it and swish the solution for about 30 seconds in your mouth and repeat the process. 

2. Magic of Cloves

With just a few cloves, you can freshen up your breath in no time. The cloves also have the property of fighting cavity-causing bacteria in your mouth. Clove oil or powdered cloves are strong and can cause burns, so make sure not to use them. 

3. Swish Your Mouth With Apple cider vinegar

If you experience a bad odor because of onions and garlic, you can easily get rid of it with some apple cider vinegar. Just add a little to a glass of water and swish it in your mouth. This acts as a natural mouthwash to help get rid of the odor in your mouth.

4. Eat More Veggies and Fruits

Another healthy and easy way to get a fresh breath is to chew on an apple, celery, or carrot. Due to its natural way of cleaning teeth, they act as toothbrushes, help keep odor-causing bacteria away and encourage saliva production, which helps fight bad breath.

5. Tea tree oil can help too

Tea tree oil helps in fighting against the bacteria and microbes that cause bad odor. You can just add a few drops of it to your toothpaste or just brush with oil alone.

Even after trying any one of these remedies, bad breath still persists, then we would recommend you to meet your dentist. There might be any other underlying dental issue or problem that might be the real culprit. The dentist will examine your condition and treat it properly after a thorough diagnosis.
