Avoid smoking or the use of tobacco/drug products. Smoking has the same effects as caffeine to the mouth and teeth, making odours stronger and increasing risk of tooth decay.
Brush your teeth after every meal, before you go to sleep, and after you wake up. While you sleep, saliva decreases which creates the opportunity for bacteria growth on the food residue that lingers in the mouth. Remember to floss any chance you get in order to reach food particles that the toothbrush did not get. Invest in a tongue cleaner to get rid of any extra bacteria in the mouth.
Chew sugarless gum throughout the day. Chewing gum not only helps stomach acid, but also creates fresher breath. If you are at work or school, try smaller pieces of gum, for example Trident, instead of the regular long sticks. If this is not possible, try Tic-Tacs.
Know that strong foods, such as garlic and onions, can contribute to bad breath. Try to substitute these foods for similar ones or avoid using these on a regular basis to omit bad breath.
Visit your dentist regularly and doctor if the situation does not go away. They can see if the situation can be solved with a simple remedy or if it is contributed by something else. Things can include stomach acid or acid reflux, issues, infections around the mouth, or lung disorders.
* Don’t eat 3 to 4 hours before going to bed.
* Use mouthwash.
* Main reason behind morning breath is because of less saliva produced in the mouth during night so just make sure to gargle with a bit of water.
