There are many reasons why we suffer from bad breath; sometimes it can simply be associated with over excess and treated quite easily. But for some people, it is very hard to get rid of and if you’re flying around the city of London, trying to get ahead in life, bad breath can not only make others unsociable towards you, it can shatter your self esteem. It is treatable, as long as you are aware of what causes it. Bad oral hygiene and an unhealthy diet can cause all manner of problems in your mouth and your body, so keeping these in order is imperative to stave off gum disease and tooth decay and keep up the immune system, as this will help to keep saliva levels high in the mouth to fight off bacteria naturally, stopping the mouth becoming dry and keeping your sinuses clear- (if you fail to remove food from the teeth properly, it will stagnate and form bacteria). Should any of these problems, you should seek help from your dentist, especially if you have a bad taste in your mouth all the time. If you’re prone to life’s excesses such as heavy drinking and smoking, abstaining or cutting down, will help stave off bad breath. Keeping your mouth saturated and fresh through herbal products and sugar free sweets also help in the battle.
