There Are a Lot of Foods That Can Freshen Your Breath
Parsley is more than a pretty piece of greenery on the side of your plate. It is something that when eaten, can help to remove other odors from your mouth. The same goes for eating fresh pieces of mint. Chew up the leaves slowly and let them linger in your mouth for a little bit before swallowing. Even a minute or two can help.
You can also eat celery. It cleans your teeth when you eat it, floods your mouth with extra water, and helps to freshen your breath. It is a great snack and it does wonders for keeping teeth clean. Another option is eating a little piece of ginger. It is great for you, especially if you are prone to upset stomachs, plus it helps to remove the little bits of odor causing debris that are left in your mouth after eating.
Each of these foods can give you fresh breath between when you finished eating and your next available brushing time. They cannot keep your teeth clean or fresh in lieu of brushing, but can tide your breath over for a few hours when necessary. To find out other ways of freshening your breath, go in and talk with your dentist. They have lots of tricks up their sleeves that can give you fresh, pleasing breath.
