Don't dine with the garlic family: spices tend to stay and recirculate through essential oils they leave in your mouth. Depending on how much you eat, the odor can stay in your mouth up to 24 hours. No matter how often you fresh your teeth. Such foods to avoid include onions, hot peppers and garlic.
Stick with water: Coffee, beer, wine and whiskey are at the top of the list of liquid offenders. Each leave a residue that can attach to the plaque in your mouth and infiltrate your digestive system.
Carry a tooth brush:Some odors can be eliminated-permanently or temporarily- if you brush immediately after a meal.
Rinse your mouth out: when you cant brush,you can rinse. Go to the rest room after meals and get a mouthful of water, swish it around and wash the smell of food from your mouth.
Gargle a minty mouthwash:Gargling with a mouthwash is a great idea. Or a breathe mint or minty gum is just a cover up.
