What Causes Bad Breath?
Dehydration causes a dry mouth
which in turn promotes bad breath.  
Regular water drinking should
become a habit because of its many
health benefits.  Coffee, soda and
alcohol all promote dehydration and
often aid halitosis.
Bad breath is one of life’s embarrassments, but it is
easily corrected by attention to dental hygiene and
food consumption.  The trick to getting rid of bad
breath revolves around removing decaying food and
bacteria from your mouth.   Regular flossing, brushing
and tongue scraping are all imperative strategies.  
Drink plenty of water and avoid foods known to cause
bad breath.  Chew sugarless gum and eat fruits,
vegetables and herbs that ward off halitosis.  Good
luck in your battle against bad breath.
Drink Water
Decomposing food particles and skin
cells in your mouth are the main source of temporary
bad breath.  Note:  If bad breath persists after following the tips in this article
you may have chronic halitosis.  Ongoing chronic bad breath may be the result of
more serious illness or periodontal disease and you should consider seeking
medical advice. That being said, you can get rid of the vast majority of bad breath
with simple oral hygiene and attention to your diet.
Get Rid of Bad Breath
Brush Your Tongue
Brushing your teeth is great, but you should also
brush your tongue.  Bacteria that cause halitosis get
trapped on your tongue where they rot and fester.  
Make a habit of scrubbing your tongue, especially
near the back, to remove the offending bacteria.  
Tongue scrapers are also sold for this purpose or
you can use a spoon for the same purpose.
Gum chewing promotes saliva which
gets rid of food particles and washes
away dead cells that cause a smelly
mouth.  Ever wonder why you have
“morning breath?”  It’s because
saliva production slows down while
we sleep.  Mints and sugared gums
do not work.
Chew Sugarless Gum
You know what foods cause bad breath.  Stay
away from onions, garlic, alcohol and their ilk if you
have a big date coming up.  Not only do these items
cause an immediate stench, but they are absorbed
into your blood stream and you are breathing them
out of your lungs hours later.
Watch What You Eat
Food gets stuck between your teeth where it decomposes and begins to
stink.  Regular flossing removes the rotting food and prevents bad breath.  
Flossing is also an important component of a healthy dental regimen.

Here’s a philosophical question about bad breath.  Which is worse, to have bad
breath yourself or to be in a one-on-one conversation with someone else having
bad breath?  Questions like this that have fueled a bazillion dollar market for bad
breath products.  Bad breath is one of life’s greatest embarrassments (we’re a
pretty shallow lot), but fortunately there are several easy ways to reduce or
eliminate bad breath.
