12 tips for a fresh breath

Because nobody loves bad breath. Here are the 12 tips for a fresh breath.

1. Go for a low-calorie diet.
Fat food can stick to your tongue and give you bad breath. So you should eat more broccoli, carrots and sweet potatoes.

2. Eat more apples and other, hard fruits.
This serves as a natural toothbrush, because by munching on a hard apple it can release the foods stuck between your teeth.

3. Drink plenty of water.
It is not only healthy for your body, but it also eliminates oral bacteria. Sports drinks, soda, and iced tea often contain citric acid, which causes a bad smell and damages your teeth. That’s not what we want.

4. Drink more green juice and less coffee.
The first contains little acid, the second just too much. And acid is the major cause of a bad breath.

5. Chew on fresh mint leaves or parsley.
Put a few of the green leaves in a plastic bag and you’ll always have fresh breath at hand. These refresh your mouth naturally.

6. Brush and floss every day.
Of course, you already brush your teeth everyday. However you can not reach everywhere with your toothbrush, but you can by flossing it!

7. Clean your tongue.
Bacteria are not just on your teeth, they’re also on your tongue. Use a tongue scraper or toothbrush to clean your tongue more often.

8. Rinse with mouthwash.
Do we have to explain this?

9. Chew sugarless gum with xylitol.
Chewing gum removes the bacteria. At least, the sugarless gum do.

10. Don’t smoke.
Smoking dries out your mouth and gives you a bad breath.

11. Use flavored lip gloss.
It can help you hide the smell of your breath.

12. Visit your dentist regularly.
Especially if you continue to have bad breath after trying the above 11 tips.
