[Dr. Yoo] We combined our most practical and effective tips for fresher breath, and we did some research tosee what else people are doing. And at the end… if you still can't get fresh breath, there might be something else going on. – This is a popular topicfor obvious reasons. Fresh breath is somethingthat we all want to have. – Sexy.- It's sexy.

Oral hygiene's sexy. So not only that, a lot of these tips improveyour oral health in general. – Yeah.- And we'll talk about conditions in your mouth that can contribute tohalitosis or bad breath, but also decay, gum disease, and other systemic issues. Routine or tip number seven.

– Is going to be drinkingless alcohol or coffee. Why is that? – Man, do you think you can do that? (Jack clearing throat)- We just finished our coffee before we start filming, man. – What is in our beloved coffee that is promoting bad breath? – So what caffeine can dois give you the dry mouth. You don't have as much salivamoving around your mouth.

And washing away all of the debris, food, and bacteria. And then also, coffee can make you have bad breath because it actually contains sulfur, during the roasting of the beans. What about alcohol, does it do the same thing? – Alcohol does something similar.

In that it dries out your mouth. The alcohol is alsoconverted into acetic acid, which has a smell itself. (Dr. John chuckling)We're not saying that you can't enjoyit on your date night, but, if you're experiencingbad breath after drinking, you'll know why. So Jack, less alcohol, do you think you can do that.

For your next date night? – Honestly, if you drink enough drinks, then you won't care. (Jack laughing)(Dr. John chuckling) – Not a pro tip. Don't listen to him.- Just kidding. Just kidding. Just kidding.- Drink in moderation or drink less. Okay, so the next tip,.

Number six, what are salivary stimulants? This sounds crazy. – Okay.(Jack laughing) So it's in the definition, but something that will induce you to create more saliva.(water splashing) – Okay. – I'm trying to say it in a different way than stimulating saliva, essentially.

– Got it, so we got some stuff here. I use some of these things, actually. I always have a pack of sugar-free gum. – Yeah.- That I chew after meals, even after my coffee. – Jack, are there any things that you like to use on a daily basis? – I like to use xylitol, xylitol mints, xylitol gum.- Right.

What is xylitol? Can you explain? – Yeah, so xylitol is a sugar alcohol that is non-cariogenic, which means that itdoesn't create cavities. (Dr. John: mmm)- So there is such a thing? – There is, a lot of timeswhen patients have a dry mouth, it's really beneficial for them to pop in a xylitol gumright after they eat to wash away the debris,.

Or before they fall asleepand they have dry mouth, to pop in a xylitol mintthat slowly releases during the first half an hour, an hour that they're sleeping. – Dry mouth can promote many problems, including bad breath. Let's go to the next. – Oh, oh, oh.- Number five. – Number five.- Number five.

– Oh, we're back on John's favorite. – My favorite?- Tongue scraping. – I think you're known for this. (TV beeping)So this step, most people don't do it.- You should do it. – Yeah, you should do it. It is really important thatyou stick it as far back as you can into yourthroat without gagging. And oftentimes I will gag.

(dramatic horn blowing)(Jack laughing) Because it means I'mdoing a really good job. – You don't have to gag.- You don't have to but (TV beeping)- For your knowledge and entertainment, I'mgoing to demonstrate on Jack how to properly tongue scrape. (Jack chuckling)Stick this as far back into your throat and scrape forward. (Jack groaning).

Oh, that's disgusting. (Jack gagging)(Dr. John laughing) – We're done with thatand now we can show, so. (laughing)- That's disgusting. (laughing) – Yeah, it's disgusting. Oral hygiene is not alwaysthe most sexy thing. No actually cut that. Oral hygiene is sexy.

Oral hygiene is totally sexy.- Is sexy, okay. When do you like to tongue scrape? – Every hour. Every day.(Jack chuckling) – You're like Jungkook. (Jack laughing)Seven days a week. All jokes aside, it's really important to tongue scrape. It's often forgotten in people's routine. There's a lot of crapthat sits on your tongue.

If you think it's grossthat you just saw that, imagine that back in your mouth. – Imagine that in other people's mouths. Imagine you kissing someonethat doesn't tongue scrape and now you have their that in your mouth. (Dr. John laughing)- Their that? (Jack laughing)- Yeah. – Perfect. Perfect. You nailed it, man.

Let's go to the next one. – So, routine tip number four. And honestly, when we were doing research on creating this video, we didn't actually know this one, and that is eating foods thatcontain sulfur compounds. – There are very obviousfoods that contain sulfur, you know, your eggs. Some people know that the onions.

And garlic also contain that. Cauliflower contains sulfur, correct? – Yeah, even cabbage. – I'm not saying thatyou have to avoid these to have fresher breath but.(Dr. John sighing) (knife chopping through onion) I don't wanna eat that. – I let you put in metal down my throat. The least you can do is take a–.

– Oh my gosh. – Come on, take a big bite of that. (Dr. John crunching through onion) I'll do it too, man.- Oh, gosh. – Hey if you jump, I jump. (Jack crunching through onion) (Dr. John laughing) So why do sulfur-containingcompounds smell bad? – I think most people knowwhat sulfur smells like.

– Oh, okay.- It's the egg odor. – Okay, and we're not saying to remove these foods from your diet. We still are avid vegetable eaters. – Lovers.- Lovers. Second, after chicken breast. – We're fully dedicated to data. We're gonna test our breath now, blow. (Dr. John blowing deeply).

– Oh, it only gave me a two out of four.- Two out of four. – Dude, if this is two out of four, what's a four out of four, man? You gotta eat garbage? (Dr. John laughing)(Jack laughing) I'm not doing that, man. Routine tip number three. This might be one ofthe most important ones.

– Yep.- It's very simple. You can do it multiple times a day. – It's just drinking water, drinking more water after your meals, after a snack, just throughout the day. – Or rinsing your mouth withnon-alcoholic mouth rinse. – So this is TheraBreath. I think it freshens my breath,.

– Yeah.(Dr. John exhaling) and it's healthier foryour oral cavity as well. Because after a meal, oftentimes your mouth will be acidic, and will restore your pHback to normal levels. Routine tip number two. – This is honestly gettingmore and more important too. All these tips are important, but this one is really important.

Going to your dentist for a checkup, because a lot of timesthey will be the ones that are discoveringdecay or perio disease, which is like gum disease. If you have caries or gum disease, it's pretty much like decay in your mouth and it smells foul. – Even if you don't have decay, there are also things thatyour dentist can discover,.

Such as food traps. – That's right, yeah. – Can you explain what food traps are? – I'll give an example of food trap. Let's say you have a patient, two crowns. The crowns are over contoured, so it's pushing the gumbetween the two teeth, down. Now, that will leave a space, a gap between the gum and the two crowns.

(Dr. John laughing)- This is intense. – Now, when you eat, 'cause I've seen it. I've seen it. I saw it last week. Not only can it cause bad breath, it can hurt 'cause it'sputting pressure on your gums. And the moment you'veall been waiting for, our final number one tip is a combination.

Of different things, John? – Acid reflux, GERD, tonsil stones. There are a number of reasons why your bad breath may be persistent, even with impeccable hygiene and care. – So why are these conditionsaffecting your breath? – Think of this as one long tube.

And if you have problems arising here, acid reflux, indigestion, even from up here, the back of your throatwhere the tonsil stones are, you can produce odorsnot coming from here, but the rest of your digestive tract. – Oh, I also seen some crazy videos of tonsil stones being removed. It's like pimple popping on crack.

(Dr. John laughing) It's like next level pimple popping. These stones can get huge. – So these stones are made up of bacteria. These are clumps, clusters of debris, bacteria. They sit on the, what's called tonsillar crypts. So when you remove it,.

You can fix your bad breath immediately. – Right, imagine havinglike a week's worth of food. – More than a week, dude.- Yeah. – Some of these accumulate over months, years, man.- So bad. – Your dentist can findthese tonsil stones. – They're good at hide and seek. (Dr. John laughing) – Your dentist is a good seeker.

(Jack exclaiming)- Oh, okay. So yes, some of theseare medical conditions that you can't fix with your routine, but there are some things that you can do on a daily basis tohelp keep this healthy. – Yeah, such as not overeating, drinking less alcohol. – Eating the right foods.- Yeah, eating the right foods.

And finally.. – Oral hygiene is sexy.- Oral hygiene is sexy. (Jack laughing)(Dr. John laughing)
