Easy ways to avoid bad breath when fasting

Saliva protects our teeth by inhibiting bacterial growth. We have less protection against oral bacteria that might produce bad breath when we fast since our saliva flow is diminished (or halitosis). When you break your fast, your salivary glands will reactivate and attack harmful microorganisms.
It’s critical to keep your dental hygiene practice going during non-fasting hours. After iftar and suhoor, brush your teeth for 2-3 minutes with fluoride toothpaste to prevent plaque buildup.
Use floss and interdental brushes to clean regions in between your teeth that your toothbrush can’t reach on a daily basis.
To keep your mouth healthy, use a tongue scraper to remove plaque and bacteria from your tongue.
