Mouth Rinses: How Good Are They?

If you are worried about the state of your breath and the fact that you’re scared to visit a dentist for regular checkups, then there are a few things you can do to take better care and avoid tooth decay or anything else that would precipitate a visit to the dentist.

Causes of Bad Breath

You would need to brush and floss more often, and apart from this, it is always a good idea to rinse out your mouth after every meal. That is to essentially wash out all the toxic bacteria that could cause bad breath.

There are many reasons as to why you could suffer from bad breath and one of the reasons is due to plaque buildup and the resulting bacterial accretion on your teeth, gums and on the cap.
While there are many mouthwash products which are supposed to reduce and eliminate bad breath, the fact remains that mouthwash acts as a stopgap measure and gives temporary relief rather than a permanent one.

How do Mouth Rinses Work?

It usually works with you gargling with mouthwash, with the liquid having more contact with the back of your throat than with any other part of your mouth. As a result, mouthwashes seldom remove or eliminate bacteria but instead providing a cloaking effect to your bad breath, and this is only temporary.

On the other hand, mouth rinses are used to wash all of your mouth, from teeth, gums, tongue with the liquid, gargle and spit it out. They are much more effective as these rinses contain elements that help to eliminate and get rid of the bacteria present on your teeth.

While this is not a complete measure, the fact remains that you’re better off with a mouth rinse than you are with mouthwash. Additionally, regular mouth rinses should help eliminate the main reasons for your bad breath.

The Veed for Dental Hygiene

It goes without saying that good dental hygiene is a must, irrespective of your workload and your busy life. The chances of you landing up with tooth decay shoot up exponentially if you allow the bacteria build up on your teeth and fail to take any affirmative action to combat the same.

How to Prevent Bad Breath?

So start brushing and flossing more regularly, and change some of your habits. If you are a smoker, then it is time you quit, if not for the sake of your breath, then at least for the sake of your overall health. Make sure that you are stocked with a good mouth rinse and use it at least twice each day. That should help you to take care of your bad breath permanently.

Also, try to see if you can add celery to your regular diet. Celery is loaded with fiber and helps to wash away bacteria particulates from your teeth. And above all, remember to pay a visit to the dentist for a regular checkup. It will help you to find out if there is any other medical reason for your bad breath and whether it could be a symptom of an underlying health condition.
