Transient bad breath is the term given to bad breath, which subsides after brushing one's teeth or rinsing the mouth with mouthwash. In this case, bad breath may be caused due to consumption of foods like garlic, cheese, fish, etc. Bad breath also occurs when an individual's mouth is dry due to fasting, stress or sleeping overnight.

Get Rid Of Bad Breath

  1. Whenever you're near someone focus on their body language: do they rub their noses, do they back away from you, do they cough, do they offer you mints? Two or more of these signals can be interpreted to show you have bad or chronic halitosis.
  2. Medications can often cause bad breath. Be very careful with medications as they can dry your mouth and cause chronic bad breath from day one. Ask your doctor if your medications can be substituted with exercise or other remedies.
  3. Ongoing dry mouth is a serious condition. Stop it with sugar free gum and drinking 2 litres of water per day. Curiously drinking water often gets ignored despite it being the best treatment for halitosis. Do not fall into that trap!
  4. Stress can cause instant dry mouth and dry mouth causes bad breath. Avoid stress when possible. Get the things that cause stress out of your life. For the stress you have to endure make sure you have your sugar free gum and water bottle with you. It may sound silly but consider yoga as it's a proven stress killer.
  5. Inadequate oral hygiene is an open invitation to halitosis, make sure you floss first then using only a soft bristle tooth brush your tongue then clean each tooth then scrape your tongue clean.
  6. Food that help bad breath are dairy especially cheese, all meats especially red meat. So avoid these foods and don't even touch cheese.
