Fresh breath is a prerequisite for a perfect smile and kiss. Not only that, almost all human interactions are more pleasant when everyone involved has a pleasant breath. In contrast, bad breath or bad breath is a huge hindrance in life and social interaction in general. However, yogurt to treat bad breath will be an effective improvement measure.

1. What causes bad breath?

It is not uncommon for bad breath to be the result of eating certain foods with a strong, pungent odor. Garlic, onions, alcohol, fish, and coffee can all cause bad breath, but poor oral hygiene habits can also be to blame.
If you don't brush your teeth, don't floss, or don't use mouthwash, millions of bacteria can form and live in the crevices of your teeth and gums. As a result, the person can suffer from tooth decay, gingivitis and eventually halitosis. However, those are not all the only causes that can lead to bad breath, but there are other causes of bad breath including:
Smoking Mouth infections due to sores, gum disease Wounds surgery in the mouth Sinusitis or sore throat Dry mouth Taking certain medications Having certain medical conditions such as cancer, gastrointestinal disease

2. Yogurt can treat bad breath?

Today, yogurt is sold very popularly in the market because of its many health benefits, especially good for digestive health. Sometimes, yogurt is also recognized as one of the weight loss solutions. In addition, yogurt is also high in calcium, which can help strengthen tooth enamel.
Besides the above uses, yogurt is also a part of the diet to help treat bad breath. According to a study done in Japan, eating one serving (about 90ml) of unsweetened yogurt daily reduces the amount of volatile sulfur compounds in the mouth. It is the volatile sulfur compounds that are produced by bacteria and cause bad breath. Interestingly, yogurt also helps reduce plaque and gingivitis; At the same time, the active bacteria in yogurt, especially Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus, can inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria in the mouth.
Pure yogurt has very useful ingredients. Meanwhile, sweetened yogurt, although it tastes better, often contains large amounts of refined sugars and unhealthy added sugars that are not good for oral health.

3. Other foods can improve bad breath

3.1 Green Tea Green tea is more than just a pleasant and relaxing drink for an afternoon of rest. Green tea has also been shown to reduce the number of volatile sulfur compounds in the mouth, thereby reducing bad breath. The polyphenols in green tea are said to act as antibacterial and cleansers, cleaning the mouth and improving bad breath.
Similar to yogurt, it's important to remember that adding sugar to tea will negate any oral health benefits. So, if you are drinking green tea to cure bad breath, enjoy the natural sweetness of the tea without the added sugar. It is best to drink green tea at the end of a meal, both to freshen the mouth and stabilize the pH in the mouth.
3.2 Apples People often hear the saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away". What's more, "an apple a day helps prevent bad breath."
Like tea, apples also contain polyphenols that act as detergents and anti-bacterial agents. Therefore, apples are effective in alleviating bad breath when eating raw garlic. In addition, apples have active enzymes that can give an extra boost against bad breath.
In addition, thanks to the high amount of fiber, people who eat apples need to chew a lot, there will be a reflex to stimulate saliva secretion. At this point, a well-hydrated oral environment will be better able to maintain a healthy balance, with less risk of oral health problems, including the possibility of bad breath.
As with other foods, eating apples outside of meals increases the risk of developing tooth decay.
3.3 Water Water cannot be considered a food, but water is the safest choice that can fight bad breath. Everyone can drink plain water all day without increasing the risk of developing tooth decay. Because dry mouth is a major risk factor for a number of oral health problems, including bad breath. So, keeping your mouth hydrated can protect against tooth decay and prevent bad breath.

If you find yourself experiencing dry mouth even after drinking water all day, consider treating your dry mouth by adding a mouthwash that hydrates or chewing xylitol gum to hydrate and stimulate natural saliva production.
In summary, yogurt, in addition to being an excellent source of calcium, is also a great remedy to help reduce bad breath. The reason yogurt treats bad breath is that it can reduce the concentration of Hydrogen Sulfide stored in different parts of the mouth. Best of all, yogurt is also recommended by dentists because these foods are rich in Vitamin D, which reduces the growth of bacteria in the body. Besides, everyone should also have good oral health care habits, both fresh breath and strong teeth.
