How To Prevent Dry Tongue&Bad Breath

      A dry tongue and mouth are a leading cause of bad breath, or halitosis. A dry mouth due to a lack of sufficient saliva is referred to by medical professionals as xerostomia. When you suffer from this condition, an anaerobic environment is created in your mouth. This provides the perfect atmosphere for sulfur-producing bacteria to flourish. The release of these gases results in foul smelling breath. You can combat the problem of xerostomia with some effective home remedies.


Step 1

Consume eight glasses of water every day to stay hydrated and to help keep your mouth moist. This is, perhaps, the most effective measure you can take to help banish dry mouth and, therefore, most cases of bad breath.


Step 2
Keep sugar-free hard candies on hand. Sucking on these can stimulate your mouth to produce saliva. You can chew sugar-free gum if you like it better.

Step 3
Maintain good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth and your tongue well with a bacteria fighting paste after every meal, floss at least once a day and rinse with an alcohol-free mouthwash in the morning. See your dentist every six months. These measures will banish bad breath in most persons.

Step 4
Buy gum or mints containing magnolia bark extract to fight bad breath. Dr. Ray Sahelian states that magnolia bark will kill a high number of bad breath causing bacteria in a matter of minutes. You can also buy magnolia bark extract from many health food stores.

Step 5
Chew on fennel seeds to fight dry mouth and halitosis. Fennel seed is a spice and can be used to make a tea for those wishing to hydrate and freshen their mouths.

Step 6
Avoid eating strong smelling foods when can often cause bad breath. These include onions, garlic, strong spices and spiced meats such as pastrami and other sausages.

Step 7
Eat crisp vegetables and fruits to naturally clean your teeth of plaque and food particles. Apples, celery, carrots and cucumber are recommended by the Bad Breath Guide website as natural floss. These foods also aid in increasing the flow of saliva.
Step 8
See your physician or dentist is you suspect a medical problem may be contributing to your dry tongue and bad breath. There may be an underlying condition that needs treatment.
