While at times it may seem like effectively treating bad breath is impossible, that doesn't mean that it is. The use of a few simple oral health products - chief among them being toothbrushes, tongue scrapers and specialty breath freshening rinses - can reduce halitosis and breath-related stress at the same time, without relieving one's wallet of too much cash.
Recently, Women's Health released a list of tips for freshening one's breath. Many of them were to be expected, involving basic tooth and gum care. The news source recommended brushing at least twice a day, flossing and cleaning one's tongue with a common tongue scraper.
It did not mention that specialty breath freshening rinses, tablets, toothpastes and tongue scrapers exist to make banishing halitosis easier than ever.
The magazine also noted that chewing sugar-free gum, drinking unsweetened tea and consuming a carbohydrate-heavy diet may be able to reduce oral odor caused by bacteria in the mouth and compounds in the bloodstream.
While consuming such foods and beverages may mask or minimize halitosis, it cannot actually treat foul breath. Rather than limiting one's diet, it may be easier to invest in certain products, like the Blis K-12 Probiotic Kit.
