Cure Bad Breath on Eat Your Vegetables Day

Monday, June 17th, 2013

1421738_56683347Your mother probably always told you to eat your vegetables, and you should listen to this solid advice on June 17 for National Eat Your Vegetables Day. Produce should be included in your daily diet for a variety of reasons, including the health and wellbeing of your mouth! Did you know that eating a proper amount of fruits and vegetables will beat your bad breath, get rid of dry mouth and help you keep dental plaque at bay? These are some powerful little foods, so eat up June 17, and take advantage of this nationwide event.

“Adequate nutrition is important in disease prevention, and nutritional counseling is becoming an increasingly important tactic in preventive dentistry,” Ken Sutherland, senior dental consultant at Delta Dental, said. “The quality and consistency of foods, their nutritional composition and the combinations in which they are eaten can affect oral health, including the likelihood of tooth decay.”

Here are just a few of the best vegetables you can consume to keep your teeth and mouth in tip-top shape:

Root vegetables
Chomping on carrots and celery isn’t just for rabbits – but it could be why Bugs Bunny had those perfect pearly whites. Fibrous vegetables like these are great for oral care because they promote strong gums and healthy teeth. These vegetables contain beta carotene, which aids in the production of vitamin A to maintain normal function of the heart, lungs and kidneys. But they directly influence the health of your teeth as well. For instance, carrots and celery are both very crunchy, so when you eat them, it scrubs away dental plaque on the teeth. Just try it: After munching on a few pieces, you’ll notice your teeth feeling extra clean. Root vegetables are also a natural bad breath cure because they contain a high concentration of water to rinse away leftover food particles while moistening the mouth.

Kick Your Smoking Habit and Improve Oral Health

Friday, June 7th, 2013

1046564_88750920If you are a smoker, you probably know the effects that tobacco can have on your oral health, but the addictive properties make kicking the habit much easier said than done. May 31 was World No Tobacco Day, so why not take a day off from smoking to prove to yourself that you can go 24 hours without a cigarette and improve your bad breath from the habit? Long-time smokers can suffer from a number of ailments in the mouth, including gum disease and tooth decay. The chemicals and tar in cigarettes wreak havoc on the oral cavity, and it can lead to the development of oral cancers and precancers.

Research shows that smoking can have various negative effects on the mouth. Smoking can reduce the amount of blood that flows to the gums, so nutrients like vitamin C cannot reach these areas to help with healing any gum or oral health issues. Once the gums become separated from the teeth, bacteria can get caught in these deep pockets. This can lead to gum disease and tooth decay over time.

If you notice that your gums are separating or they are sensitive, swollen and bleed easily, you can benefit from taking oral probiotics to balance out the additional bacteria. Probiotics’ “good” bacteria have been receiving praise for their ability to get rid of their harmful counterparts. Oral probiotics can reduce the amount of bacteria that get trapped between the gums, improve your breath and more. Although the best way to avoid these symptoms is to quit smoking, taking daily probiotics can help you while you are trying to kick the habit.

Smoker’s breath
Smoking cigarettes is harmful in many ways, and while it’s certainly bad for your health, having smoker’s breath can put a damper on social situations. People who smoke cigarettes for an extended period of time often have bad breath, even if they haven’t smoked a cigarette in hours. Since smoking can cause dry mouth, you won’t have an appropriate amount of saliva to wash away the tobacco-y smell that lingers behind. Here are a few ways to get rid of smoker’s breath:

Find Your Cure for Dry Mouth

Friday, April 5th, 2013

CHWG-TBR-423Dry mouth is frustrating, uncomfortable and annoying – but unfortunately, we all suffer from it once in a while. Do you feel like you’re constantly drinking water but still have a dry, sticky feeling in your mouth? Saliva is a crucial liquid, because it helps keep everything moist, washes bacteria away and allows you to enjoy every little bite of food. Luckily, there are some dry mouth cures that you can do in the comfort of your own home that will increase saliva flow and allow you to overcome oral health issues that are dragging you down. 

Your everyday diet
Dry mouth is caused by a number of things, but the first option to try and get rid of it is to cut items out of your diet that may be making the issue worse. For instance, your morning cup of coffee isn’t the culprit to your dry mouth, but it likely isn’t making the situation better. If you drink a cup every morning, it probably isn’t related to your dry mouth, but if you find yourself consuming upwards of three cups every day, it could be helpful to cut down your intake. Although many people do contribute coffee to dry mouth, it may actually be because you’re drinking coffee instead of water. If you can’t live without your caffeine – and we can’t blame you – try to balance it out by drinking a glass of water for every cup. Similarly, a caffeine overdose may lead to dehydration and therefore dry mouth. 

Make sure to always have water on hand with you, and frequently take sips. If you’re a big soda drinker, this can be causing your dry mouth as well. Consider cutting down on soda intake and increasing water to cure dry mouth. Also, changing your diet to include a larger amount of fruits and vegetables can help, since they have a high water content.

Better your health by combating dry mouth

Friday, January 18th, 2013

dry mouth and stressHaving a good night’s sleep is pertinent for a healthy mind and body, but there are some issues that keep us up at night. Do you ever have to get up in the middle of the night to get some water? Suffering from dry mouth can cause pain and discomfort throughout the night and during the day, and it can also be a sign of other illnesses.

During sleep, the body is able to restore itself, but if you are waking up in the middle of the night to drink water, this restoration is being interrupted and can cause you to be groggy throughout the day. This can hinder work, weight loss, and increase stress and the probability of sickness. All because of your dry mouth symptoms!

What are the symptoms?

Although “dry mouth” is pretty straightforward, there are other symptoms that you may have as well. You may also have trouble swallowing, chewing and speaking without taking a sip of water. Other people may have cracked and sore skin inside the mouth, and you may have a sandpaper-like tongue.

What is causing it?

There are many reasons why you may be having dry mouth, some that are easily preventable and others are a larger issue that should be taken seriously. If you feel like you’re suffering from post nasal drip, this could be directly related to dry mouth. With this illnesses, the mucus becomes thick, which can sometimes make it challenging to breathe through the mouth.

“The sensation of post-nasal drip is not usually caused by an increased amount of mucus coming from your nose or sinuses,” Dr. Robert Dolan told EverydayHealth. “It is more likely to be caused by the mucus becoming too thick or by irritation of your throat. In my experience, the three most common causes are allergy, gastric reflux, and medications that cause dryness.”

Preventing post nasal drip entirely depends on where it is coming from. Oral medications and natural nasal sprays can combat this issue if it doesn’t stem from a larger illness.

What to change?

Are you a smoker? Do you eat unhealthy foods? Do you commonly drink alcohol or caffeinated beverages? These are all causes of dry mouth! Without having to change much of your lifestyle to combat bad breath, you can try to cut back on the amount of unhealthy things you intake. If you’re a smoker or an avid coffee drinker, make sure that you drink a glass of water afterwards to moisturize the mouth. Drinking a substantial amount of water each day will help eliminate dry mouth. Increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables in your diet can help dramatically as well. Because these items have a large amount of water in them, and vitamins and minerals, they keep the mouth healthy.

What does dry mouth lead to?

Dry mouth can lead to various other oral health issues such as tooth decay, bad breath, a lack of taste and mouth sores. Since the bacteria in our mouths have no chance to get flushed down by saliva – which is what normally happens – it just stays in our mouths and causes these issues. Mouth sores are more common because when there is no protective layer of moisture, there is a much higher risk of cuts and infections.
