17 Best Ways to Get Rid of Bad Breath

Want to learn these ways, keep reading.

1. Do Regular Brushing

This is the very basic step which everyone must follow. Most of the people can avoid their bad breath just by doing regular brushing.

According to me, everyone must do brushing minimum twice a day. Once early in the morning and second at night before going to sleep.

2. Use Mouthwash

For some people just brushing is not enough. To those, I highly recommend the use of Mouthwash after every brushing.

You can use any mouthwash but I personally like Listerine.

The Use of mouthwash not only gives you a fresh and clean breath but also helps in removing the plaque more effectively and make your teeth look white.

3. Quit Smoking to avoid Bad Breath

If you are a smoker then I must say that you have to quit it. Smoking is one of the main causes of bad breath and also make your teeth yellow.

Just by avoiding smoking and doing regular brushing you’ll notice a huge improvement.

4. Drink Plenty of Water

Drinking tons of water (6-10 glasses) daily also helps in getting rid of the bad smell from the mouth. According to research, dryness causes bad breath. (1)

Drinking water after coffee or tee also prevents the accumulation of chemicals on teeth and hence helps make your teeth strong, healthy and away from yellow spots.

5. Replace your Tooth Brush Regularly

This is also a very important step and most of the people don’t know about it.

For a good oral health, one must change his toothbrush after every 2-3 months. This will prevent you from tons of diseases and possibly also helps in getting rid of bad breath.

6. Avoid Foods that Cause Bad Breath

There are some foods that cause bad breath and one must avoid them if he/she wants to go out to meet someone.

The big offenders are:

  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Alcohol
  • Dairy Products

7. Green Tea

Green Tea has tons of benefits, but here I want to discuss with you how it helps in preventing the bad breath from mouth.

According to a research by NCBI, Green Tea has deodorizing properties which give you a fresh and clean breath. (2)

For best and permanent results it is recommended that you drink 1-2 cups of it daily.

8. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

ACV has a high concentration of acetic and malic acids which are unsuitable for bad breath causing bacteria.

Here I’d like to tell you the 2 best ways of using ACV for a bad smell.

#1. Apple Cider Vinegar as a Drink

  • Take 2 Tbs of ACV
  • Take 1 Cup of Water

Add them together and mix properly. Then drink it daily after every meal to help improve the digestion and kill the bad breath causing bacteria.

#2. Apple Cider Vinegar to Gargle

  • Take 1 Teaspoon ACV
  • 1 Cup of warm water

Mix them together and use this mixture to gargle daily. This will kill bacteria from your mouth and gives you a fresh breath.

Please Note: Don’t swallow this mixture.

9. Apples for Bad Breath

We have heard a lot that an Apple a day keeps the Doctor away but have you ever heard that an apple a day could also keep the bad breath away.

I bet most of you don’t!

When we eat apples they help remove the pieces of food stuck in the teeth which later could produce bad smell.

10. Do Regular Flossing

Along with regular brushing, one must do regular flossing. It helps in removing the stuck particles between the teeth which later cause bad breath.

Make sure you do flossing minimum 2 times a day for best results.

11. Brush your Tongue

This step is also very important because tongue could be a host for the bacteria to live and produce bad smell.

When buying toothbrush keep in mind that it also has the option to clean the tongue. That’s how you’ll get amazing results.

12. Chew Gum after Dinner

The logic behind this is, chewing gum stimulates the saliva in the mouth which is a natural defense against plaque acids, which cause bad breath and tooth decay.

One thing you should keep in mind…

…Chew Sugarless Gum as bacteria in the mouth love sugar and they use it to make acid.

13. Use Mouth Spray (Temporary Solution)

You can also use mouth sprays to temporary hide your bad breath but they are not long lasting and a permanent solution.

If you are in a hurry and want to join any party or anything then hiding your bad breath for a few hours using mouth spray isn’t a bad idea.

14. Chew Cloves or Fennel Seeds

Both have antiseptic properties and are very beneficial in giving you a fresh breath. They have tons of health benefits like eating them also improves the eyesight.

Chew any of the above mentioned daily 2-3 times with a gap of 6-8 hours and you’ll see amazing benefits.

15. Honey and Water

Every morning drink this 1 glass and you’ll notice day by day improvement.
