A malodorous mouth can NEVER be completely cleaned by brushing and flossing alone. Even if you use the most expensive mouthwash and toothpaste available in the market, BAD BREATH (halitosis) can’t be completely eradicated by these common methods alone.
Sometimes the flavored and sugary mints can only temporarily mask the stingy problem. What’s more, the alcohol in most mouthwashes can only do more harm than good to your body.
I personally prefer to use the most complicated and state of the art gadget for my everyday oral hygiene. It’s called tongue scraper. Heard of it? It’s so simple a device made of plastic or lightweight material that will serve as a manual cleaner of the major organ than houses most of the oral bacteria.
After doing your usual brushing, scrape the top and sides of the tongue, avoiding the underside. Try to remove the white, gooey substance that sticks to the tongue. Most likely, these are the odor causing bacteria that causes the stingy smell out of your mouth.
Some doctors will also recommend digestive enzymes as poor digestion can also cause the severe bad breath since poorly digested food can spoil inside your intestine.
There are also some herbs like ginger, coriander and fennel. These herbs are mostly available in gelatin form. Take one capsule every after meal with a little water. Never mind if you smell of ginger and herbs, as most people would rather smell organic stuff than industrial toxic waste like odor.
