At times we may have a bad taste in our mouth that can smell bad and we worry about bad breath. Studies show that the smell of our breath may say something about our health. Here are some causes of bad breath:
Medications: Taking medications, vitamins, even herbs, can create a smell in our breath. Because many medications cause dry mouth, they can contribute to bad breath because saliva is a good cleaner. Saliva keeps the mouth healthy.
The elimination of bacteria in the mouth, while sounding like a good goal, is not a realistic one. There are good bacteria in the mouth that aid in the digestion process, and bacteria that are destructive when present in too great of numbers in the mouth.

How much water do you need to drink to stay hydrated? How much you need depends on your activites and the daily temperature.
Generally, the more you drink on hot days, the better. But WHAT you drink should be a smart choice too.
Fluoride is a negatively charged naturally occurring element that has been found to bind with the positively charged calcium matrix in enamel and strengthen it. Fluoride restores demineralized tooth structure and is a cost effective way to decrease decay. Also, fluoride inhibits the growth of bacterial activity in dental plaque.
