In this article, I am going to give you some valid insight into to defeating this problem and you are going to walk away a lot more confident with the knowledge that you gain.  Stay with the article until you get to the end or bookmark it now, so that you can find it again.

Generally speakding, there are a few truths that one should keep in mind when seeking to eliminate bad breath. First of all, there is no such thing as a ‘one size fits all’ method. Each human body is unique and different.

This is the same reason that medicine is an ‘art’ rather than a ‘science’. Everyone can agree that a+b=c but if ‘b’ equals the human body – then it is a variable that never stays the same. Therefore, the equation cannot have the same solution every time.

One problem that people encounter when fighting bad breath is the notion that they can just use mints or a mouthwash. This may not get to the heart of the problem.  The root cause can persist.

On the other hand, you might have a better chance with an oxygenated pH balanced mouthwash. When it comes to dental health, the problem causing anaerobic bacteria do not want oxygen in their environment. Therefore, it is a good idea to give them just that.

In opposition to this idea are the mouthwashes that contain large amounts of alcohol. This is problematic because the alcohol has a drying effect on the mucous membranes of the mouth. The bacteria love a dry mouth because they can reproduce more rapidly, exacerbating the problem further.

Many times, people would do well to take a look at natural approaches. For example, there is an oramd review that has some interesting information about essential oils. Some essential oils can kill bacteria. Perhaps this would be a better way to get to the root of the matter.

Finally, if you attack bad breath in the wrong areas of the mouth, you may do a lot of work and achieve little in terms of results. Occasionally, but not always, tonsil stones lodged in the palatine tonsils can cause bad breath. This is because they may have accumulated large amounts of the ‘wrong kind’ of bacteria.

If this is the case, a person can scrub or scrape their tongue all day long to little or no avail! By the same token even the right kind of mouthwash may have but a small effect when the root of the problem is tonsil stones.

If tonsil stones are the source of your malodorous breath or that of someone you love, then a tonsil stone removal kit, might be helpful to you. Of course, if you decide that you need professional help removing them, most dentists will be happy to help you.

Though I have mentioned a few items here, remember that not every human body is the same and you might need to try several things out before you find the right solution for you. What works for one person may not work for someone else.

Therefore, you should never get discouraged. Just view your search as a process rather than a simple answer that you can find anywhere. Keeping a journal may help.

One more resource that might be of use to you is the free: Bad Breath Bible. It is a 49 page digital booklet that can really teach you about the causes of bad breath and what you can do about getting rid of bad breath!

Stay persistent and you can beat this problem!
