Good Foods for Bad Breath Treatment

Are you suffering in silence with very bad breath? Discover how to stop bad breath by choosing good foods and drinks.

A Double Dose of Dairy

Foods that are full of calcium like cheese and yogurt are among the very best bad breath cures. Dental research has shown that eating a piece of cheese after a meal or snack can actually neutralize acids in your mouth that lead to bad breath. And people who eat yogurt every day have lower levels of the oral compounds that make breath smell bad.

Crunch Your Way Clean

While soft and sticky foods get trapped in teeth and breed bad-smelling bacteria, crunchy foods like fruits and veggies are actually bad breath cures. Crunching on foods like carrots, apples, and cucumbers removes food trapped in your teeth and scrubs away bacteria that lead to odorous breath.

Sugarless for More Protection

When you choose to chew sugarless gum, you increase your flow of saliva, which rinses away the bacteria that causes bad breath. While you may assume that mint-flavored gum would be best to freshen your breath, it’s smarter to choose cinnamon gum, which contains an essential oil that decreases smelly bacteria.

Water is the Way

Dry mouth causes bad breath for millions of people of every age. When it comes to how to stop bad breath, you want to keep your mouth moist with water all day long. Another of water’s wonders is how it rinses away any food trapped in your teeth, which is known to lead to bad breath. But simply drinking water is an easy and effective bad breath treatment.
