      If you wear dentures, remove them at night and clean to get rid of bacterial buildup from food and drink.
      Drink plenty of water and swish cool water around in your mouth. This is especially helpful to freshen “morning breath.”
      Brush after every meal and floss, preferably twice a day.
      Replace your toothbrush every two to three months.
      Arrange regular dental checkups and cleanings.

    1. Hii Santosh
      Spices in kitchen are natural breath enhancers, especially cloves, anise seeds, fennel, etc. can be consumed after odoriferous meals to keep away bad breath. These spices have strong fragrances of their own and overpower the foul smell of bad breath. It is also advised to carry a tiny plastic bag of spices along whenever out of home.
      Hope it will help….

  4. i regularly brush twice a day and have an healthy diet,but still i am suffering from bad breath.please suggest me some home remedies.

  5. Hay Rakshitha,

    A canker sore, or aphthous ulcer is a mouth ulcer or sore that’s open and painful.
    Canker sores are small white swellings or sores surrounded by an area of redness. While canker sores are not contagious.
    Mouthwashes like Listerine or Scope are perfect examples of antibacterial agents, but if you’re not too keen on using a mouthwash you can always go with an iodine-based wash as well. Iodine makes for a great canker sore cure if applied regularly, but don’t swallow it…it’s significantly worse for you than iodized salt.
