Yes, there are bad breath cures that actually work. If you’ve tried multiple techniques and none of them have been successful for you, there’s a good chance you’ve been treating the symptoms and side effects of the condition known as halitosis without addressing the source of the problem.
Don’t be embarrassed if that’s the case. It’s a lot more common than you might think. Since the medical industry itself has only recently learned the true cause of bad breath, you might be trying to cure it using misinformation that was unintentionally provided by a doctor.
What causes bad breath? Answering that question puts you halfway towards finding bad breath cures. The actual cause may not be what you think it is. All of that old school thinking about poor oral hygiene and certain foods being the culprits is only half correct.
Protein-rich foods can cause bad breath, but not directly. Their presence in the body provides sustenance for anaerobic bacteria that are the actual cause of the condition. If you’re looking for bad breath cures, you need to find ones that address the root cause, not one of the many surface issues.

Sometimes brushing your teeth after eating onions or garlic won’t stop you from having bad breath. Garlic can stay in your lungs for 1-2 days after you consume it! Therefore, making your breath fresh after eating onions and garlic is more complex than brushing your teeth and gargling. Here are some pointers:
- Try drinking some green or mint tea after consuming garlic/onions.
- Eat a lemon/drink lemonade.
- Chew on parsley, mint leaves, or other strong-tasting fresh herbs
- Try eating mixed veggies crushed into a mashed potato like mushrooms, carrots, and other types.
- Chew mint/spearmint flavored gum
- Drink a small amount of alcohol because it can kill the bacteria that feeds on leftover food in the oral cavity.
- Eat a hard cheese like cheddar or swiss (not American) to cover up the smell
- You can try to use a smaller amount of onion or garlic while cooking
- Use a spoon to clean off your tongue if you don’t have access to a tongue scraper
- Don’t forget to brush your teeth and rinse out your mouth, of course.
Bad breath plagues everyone from time to time. In order to cure bad breath, one must know what is causing it. The cause determines the cure for halitosis. Sometimes food can cause bad breath (i.e. foods with spices like cumin and curry) for days on end, after they’re eaten and digested. Food that becomes stuck in the oral cavity and lodged between teeth can definitely cause foul smells. Poor dental health like tooth decay, a lack of oral cleanliness and periodontal diseases can all contribute to the bacteria that causes bad breath. These bacteria build up between the teeth and omit foul odors. It is important to practice good oral hygiene by brushing teeth regularly and using floss and oral rinse after eating. Also, one should take trips to the dentist at least twice a year.
Morning breath is extremely common among humans because some people have their mouths open while sleeping, which dries the tongue, gum, and cheek tissues. Saliva, which normally flows through the mouth during waking hours, cleans up dead cells. When one is sleeping, this does not happen, thus creating halitosis.
Underlying illnesses can frequently cause bad breath, like some cancers, diabetes, liver issues, lung sicknesses, kidney failure, lingering acid backwash, and metabolism problems. If you have any abnormal symptoms, you should get checked out by a doctor.
