Do you suffer from bad breath? Bad breath is a result of poor oral hygiene and it may also be a sign of other health problems as well. What many don't know, is that many different kinds of foods also affect your breath! Garlic, especially, is one of the main food items that is a major cause of bad breath. Even after brushing and flossing, and even using mouthwash, garlic will still be present in your mouth until your body has completely disregarded it! To get rid of odor causing bacteria in your mouth, you should brush and floss immediately after every time you eat. This will eliminate the odor causing bacteria that grows in between your teeth and will help with bad breath. Tobacco (smoking it and chewing it) not only causes bad breath, but is extremely bad for your oral and general health as well. Not only that, but it also causes yellowing of the teeth.
