Addressing Systemic Causes of Bad Breath

Bad Breath

Bad breath is one of the fastest ways to bring an otherwise pleasant conversation to an end. Nobody likes being on the receiving end of bad breath, and those suffering from the condition also feel a great deal of discomfort and embarrassment, particularly in social settings. Fortunately, by exploring the root causes of bad breath and making a few key dietary changes, bad breath really can be conquered.

If bad breath is an ongoing problem, you should first try at-home dental care techniques such as regular tooth brushing, frequent flossing, gargling with baking soda and peroxide, and seeking routine cleanings from an affordable dentist at a local family dentistry clinic. However, if none of those methods prove effective, you may need to look to your diet as a potential source of the issue.

Most family dentistry professionals will agree that adding more celery, apples, and other crunchy produce into your daily diet is a great way to combat halitosis. Not only do these foods work to eliminate plaque buildup that can cause bad breath, they also help you produce extra bacteria-battling saliva.

Bad breath can also result from an unhealthy gut. If you know that you have toxic build-up in your digestive system, you should give serious consideration to probiotics as a potential solution. Using probiotic flora or incorporating probiotic-rich food such as yogurt into your diet can go a long way toward solving your halitosis problem.

Drinking more water each day can be a simple way to combat bad breath, since dehydration is a common culprit when it comes to this complaint. Insufficient water intake can cause you to experience bacterial accumulations in the mouth that result in unpleasant breath. Ingesting lots of water helps your body produce saliva, which is a natural bacteria fighter.

Zinc deficiency is the primary cause of halitosis in a large number of individuals, as it is a mineral that helps eliminate and neutralize bacteria in the mouth. Your family dentistry practitioner may recommend oral zinc supplements or suggest that you eat foods rich in zinc to fight bad breath.

Finally, the accumulation of toxins, heavy metals, and yeast in the body can also lead to chronic bad breath, and for that reason, the entire system ought to be flushed with regularity. To do this, you may choose to try stinging nettle tea or stinging nettle supplements. This herb has been shown to boost the lymphatic system and facilitate the expulsion of uric acid. This all serves to attack the foundational causes of bad breath.
