Get a Taste of Bad Breath Cures

Wondering how to stop bad breath? The answers are hiding in your diet, so discover which foods and drinks also serve as a bad breath treatment.

  1. Add Dairy to Your Diet

Did you know that high-calcium dairy foods like cheese and yogurt are some of the best bad breath cures around? Research has shown that eating a piece of cheese after a meal or snack can neutralize acids on your teeth that cause bad breath. And people who eat yogurt every day have lower levels of the oral compounds that lead to breath odor.

  1. Crave the Crunch

When you eat sticky or soft foods, these particles tend to get trapped in your teeth and breed odorous oral bacteria. Rather than reach for these chewy choices, choose crunchy fruits and vegetables because they’re actually bad breath cures. Crunching on foods like carrots, apples, and celery removes food trapped in your teeth and scrubs away the bacteria that makes breath smell bad.

  1. Pour on the Water

Another leading cause of bad breath is dry mouth. When it comes to how to stop bad breath, you want to keep your mouth moist with water. Another wonder of water is how it rinses away the food trapped in your teeth that causes bad breath. These are the reasons why drinking water throughout the day is a simple bad breath treatment.

  1. Break Free with Sugar-Free

Chewing sugar-free gum increases your saliva flow, which rinses away the bacteria that leads to bad breath. While you may assume that mint-flavored gum would be best to freshen your breath, it’s better to choose cinnamon, which contains an essential oil that reduces odor-causing bacteria.
