Unless bad breath is caused by gum disease or an underlying medical condition, the problem is usually easy to avoid or treat. The most common causes are either improper dental care or eating the wrong foods. Smoking is also a recognised culprit.
Avoiding bad breath can be achieved by following some basic guidelines:
– Take proper care of teeth and gums and visit the dentist regularly
– Avoid “smelly” foods like onions, garlic and strongly flavoured snacks
– Use a good anti-bacterial mouthwash
Rinsing the mouth regularly with water also helps as “trapped food also adds to the problem” and allows bacteria to accumulate on the teeth and gums. Read more about avoiding bad breath at https://www.modernghana.com/news/895255/bad-breath-and-what-to-do.html
