Simple But Effective Ways to Fight Bad Breath in London

If you have bad breath in London, chances are you may not be aware that you have it, but others around you most certainly will and they might well feel too embarrassed to point it out to you. Bad breath can be caused by a myriad of things from poor oral hygiene, gum disease to poor diet, yet there are simple ways to combat the problem, though you have to be prepared to put the effort in. The first port of call is the dentists- they will be able to advise you on a good course of hygiene; brushes, pastes and mouthwashes to start with. But if you seriously suffer from the problem, it will take a lot more than this to remedy. For a start, if something tastes bad in the mouth, rest assured it won’t smell nice either. Apart from the obvious hygiene methods, these following little tips will get you there. Eat well for a start and slow down on the smoking and drinking. Chewing mint leaves or cloves can fight the odour and gargling with warm, lemon and salty water is great for the mouth especially if you are using strong alcohol based mouthwashes; (best to avoid as they can have the reverse effect). Baking soda and tea tree oil have long been good deterrents against bad breath and they can be used on the toothbrush or in water and in the case of the oil, it attacks gum disease and is best when soaked into dental floss.
