How to prevent bad breath? How to stop having a dirty mouth odor? Tips and suggestion to prevent foul breath!

Foul breath is a turn-off. It’s embarrassing to have one and the realization that we have it, tend to keep us away from socializing. In extreme case, it can dent our self-confidence to an unimaginable extent that it could transform the way we comprehend and approach life outside home. It could stop us from being poignant with people without restraint, and making new acquaintances.

A recent report indicates that nearly 80 million people suffer from chronic foul breath, medically known as halitosis. Halitosis demands a specialist to treat it. However, if your mouth odor isn't so severe to be a chronic halitosis, then by following few simple rules you can keep foul breath at bay. Read on!

Generally, bad breath is a result of two things:

1. Oral Hygiene.
2. Gastro intestinal hygiene.

It simply implies that you need to eat healthy to keep your digestive track in good condition, damn simple isn't it? Apart from brushing, it is highly advised that you induct regular floss into your clean-teeth regimen for a holistic oral health.

Here are few things that you need to follow to prevent and camouflage bad mouth odor:
