Bad Breath Cure

Bad Breath Cure[/caption]Without any doubt the main cause of bad breath is poor oral hygiene due to a person not brushing, flossing or generally cleaning their mouth or teeth on a regular basis. It can be worse if the person affected is a regular smoker, eats strong-smelling foods such as garlic or drinks excess amounts of alcohol or coffee.If you don’t clean your teeth or mouth thoroughly or regularly then bacteria in your mouth can begin to break down particles of food and this in turn can release unpleasant smelling gases. So regular cleaning of your teeth and using a mouthwash can provide a simple and reliable bad breath cure.However … if you look after your oral hygiene and you still suffer from bad breath then there could be an underlying medical condition such as tooth decay or gum disease, which means you should make an appointment to visit your dentist as soon as possible.There are other medical conditions that can be the cause of bad breath and these include infections and illnesses of the gastro intestinal tract. These conditions are rare however and if you visit your dentist they will be able to eliminate obvious causes and if required will recommend that you visit your GP.Here is the Carisbrook 1, 2, 3 Bad Breath CureAlways brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss between your teeth regularly. Use a non alcohol-based mouthwash and be sure to clean your tongue where bacteria can build up.
