Try chewing on fresh mint leaves. Toothpaste and chewing gum smell like mint for a reason: it’s fresh and strong. Spices like cloves, cardamom, and fennel seeds are excellent at fighting mouth odor. Cloves and cardamom both have antibacterial properties – just what you need to kill the source of that stinking odor! Chewing on fennel will aid saliva production and combat any nasty mouth bacteria.

Keeping yourself hydrated has many health benefits, and avoiding bad breath is just one of them. Saliva prevents bacterial growth, and water is needed to keep the salivary glands working efficiently. Drinking water is paramount when it comes to preventing the bacterial growth and bad breath caused by inadequate moisture and saliva in the mouth. Avoid sugary juices at night because they can aid bacterial buildup during the night.

Scrape your tongue. 4:36
Your tongue can be a breeding ground for smelly bacteria. After you brush your teeth, use your toothbrush to scrape your tongue of any bacteria, byproducts from the bacteria, or plaque. You can also use a tongue scraper for this.

Keep your gums healthy. 5:37
Bacteria gathers in pockets at the base of the teeth, which creates an odor. Gum diseases are known to cause bad breath. To keep your gums healthy, choose toothpaste that contains fluoride. In case you’ve been looking for another good reason to quit smoking, here it is. Smoking weakens your immune system and is strongly associated with the onset of gum-related problems.
