Battle Bad Breath with Foods You Eat
Posted on 10/15/2018 by Clay Keith dds
Bad breath is something that plagues us all at times. Fortunately, there are steps that you can take to minimize it, including choosing better foods. These are some foods that can reduce your bad breath. Crunchy Vegetables Crunchy vegetables like carrots, celery, and cucumbers are great for your oral health. The fibrous nature works as a toothbrush to scrub the teeth clean, and they also stimulate the production of saliva. Ultimately, this will help to rinse away bacteria and plaque from the teeth. Green Tea Instead of starting off your morning with coffee breath, consider switching to green tea. Green tea contains a powerful antioxidant called catechin, and it works to keep bacteria at bay. Since bacteria are the cause of foul odors coming from the mouth, this can help to keep your breath fresh. Almonds Almonds work the same way as crunchy vegetables. They are rich in fiber and act as tiny toothbrushes on the teeth. Not only will this help to freshen the breath, but it can also keep bacteria from staining the teeth. Yogurt Researchers found that regular consumption of sugar-free probiotic yogurt several times a week can freshen the breath. This works by lowering the levels of sulfide compounds in the mouth. Fortified yogurt is also a great source of both calcium and vitamin D, which helps to reduce mouth bacteria. Parsley Many people only know of parsley when it shows up as a garnish on their dinner plate. What they don't often realize is that it is a great way to treat bad breath. Parsley reduced bacteria levels and also leaves the mouth with a fresh taste. Other herbs like cinnamon and spearmint can help to mask bad breath, but won't necessarily get to the root cause. Are you worried about your chronic bad breath? If so, give our office a call to set up your next appointment....
