What are some home remedies for bad breath during pregnancy

Good oral hygiene is the best advice I have. Brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day will greatly reduce your bad breath. Brushing and flossing will also help you to avoid gum problems that are more common during pregnancy. Oral hygiene is very important during pregnancy because you are at higher risk for gum disease.

Chewing gum and breath mints can also help your breath but they do not replace brushing or flossing. Gargling salt water can also help with bad breath.

If you have tried everything and you are still having problems make an appointment to see your dentist.

    If I had bad breath, I don't think I noticed it or anyone drew my attention to it. Did anyone else suffer from it during pregnancy?

      If I had of had Thieves or peppermint oil with my first seven pregnancies, I would have used those for bad breath. We've used mouth wash for the most part.
