We all get bad breath from time to time, especially when you really want that pepperoni and garlic pizza (try it sometime), but it can become a chronic problem. Thankfully you can do something about it. Your mouth is a wildlife preservation for bacteria, containing over 600 types at one time just waiting to jump on left behind food particles to ruin your breath along with your teeth. Regular brushing prevents some of this, but don’t forget your tongue! Brushing your tongue will save you breath and your mouth health.
If you suffer from dry mouth you probably have a major problem with halitosis as well- which makes sense, as the lack of saliva will kill your mouths ability to kill bacteria and neutralize acid. Also, avoiding some of the obvious culprits helps. Garlic and onion, we’re looking at you, but red wine is often a cause of bad breath as it leaves a film on teeth giving that bacteria something to cling to.
