Having bad breath can be embarrassing. However, did you know there are a number of solutions you can try? For instance, you probably know that brushing and flossing will help you keep your breath fresh. Similarly, if you don’t have your toothbrush with you, there are actually certain foods that can help keep your teeth strong.

Similarly, you may know that eating certain types of food can cause bad breath. In fact, when you eat, food particles are left on your teeth—which could cause bad breath. Fortunately, saliva carries these food particles and bad bacteria away. Crunchy foods, like apples and celery, also promote saliva production. Sugarless gum will also help your saliva flow and help you cover bad breath.

There are other foods that can freshen your breath, including, parsley, lemons, and cranberries. Dairy products can also help your teeth as well as your breath. You see, most dairy products contain high amounts of calcium which help to remineralize your teeth. Milk also negates acids that can cause bad breath.
