Natural remedies can also be successfully used in case of problems with various inflammations in the oral cavity and throat, which are also accompanied by unpleasant bad breath.
Of course, thorough oral hygiene is essential to ensure clean teeth and oral cavity. In addition to brushing your teeth, overall care includes cleaning your tongue, rinsing your mouth and regular visits to the dentist.
Since everything is related to everything, we will start from general procedures. The basics are a regular supply of fluids to allow sufficient saliva production. Saliva helps maintain a healthy oral cavity because it allows the removal of dirt and microorganisms.
A balanced diet is equally important. It is ideal to eat enough food that requires chewing, as chewing increases the saliva content in the mouth.
There is no need to be reminded of regular hygiene with the use of a toothbrush and dental floss to remove plaque on a regular basis. If you are not comfortable with commercially available toothpastes, you can make a natural toothpaste and natural mouthwash for regular mouth rinses.
In the case of poor hygiene, there is a risk of tooth decay, bad breath and various inflammations in the mouth and on the tongue. One way to get rid of bad breath is to use some natural remedies.
Use of natural remedies in oral hygiene
Cloves have excellent disinfectant and antiseptic properties. Just have a look into your kitchen supplies to find some cloves and chew a few cloves thoroughly on a regular basis (but do not swallow). Cloves help to soothe any inflammation and relieve pain. But it is also good for prevention as part of dental hygiene.
You can also get clove oil, which can be used to relieve the pain of inflammation in the mouth. The main ingredient in clove essential oil is eugenol. You can use clove oil as an ingredient in making mouthwash or toothpaste. Just put a drop of the oil on a cotton swab and rub it on the problem area.
Cloves help remove bad breath very well.
But careful – with high concentrations and regular use, there are side effects associated with eugenol, which is contained in it and has a negative effect on blood clotting.
Ginger is also a good analgesic that helps with toothache and inflammation. Just grate ginger root, squeeze and rub the juice on the painful area. Thanks to its antibacterial and antiseptic properties, ginger also helps against bad breath. You can also use decoctions of ginger, which are also good for colds.
Another oral hygiene helper is mint, which also helps fight bad breath very well. You can grow peppermint in your garden or at home in a pot. Then just pluck a few leaves periodically, chew them and spit them out. Peppermint contains menthol, which has excellent antiseptic and antibacterial properties. In addition to oral hygiene, it is also useful for inhalation.
Keep in mind that the disease must be consulted with a doctor who will suggest the correct course of treatment. Treatment using natural methods is based on long-term experience, but is not based on scientific knowledge and clinical studies.
