Bad Breath Cure

How to Control and Get Rid of Halitosis or Bad Breath

People use many different products to get rid of bad breath and to fresher their mouth. Many products just mask the odor and are help for very-short time at best. Breath strips, breath sprays, mints and gums provide instant freshness, but they just mask the odor and provide flavor, they don't kill the germs.

Mouthwashes do much better job, but there is big difference in quality and their power to eliminate bacteria causing bad breath.

Most basic mouthwashes are alcohol based and they do the job and kill the germs, but not all of them. They eliminate bad breath for very short time when you rinse with them and then germs grow quickly back. Mouthwashes with oxidizers are better odor eliminators than the ones with alcohol, but they also don't do anything to stop the germs causing bad breath, so they also work short term.

The good odor eliminators and preventors are mouthwashes with new technology to eliminate existing bad breath when you rinse and at the same time prevent bad breath from recurring.

Odors coming from the stomach are almost never the cause of chronic bad breath. More specifically, bad breath is usually caused by the bacteria that live in a person's mouth. Bacteria, just like people, go through their lives consuming foods and excreting wastes. The wastes of some oral bacteria are sulfur compounds and it is primarily these odoriferous wastes which usually lie at the root of a person's bad breath.
