Causes of bad breath

Halitosis, also known as bad breath, is an unpleasant smell from the mouth. Finding the root cause of the problem will help you to overcome it. Here are some of the most common causes of bad breath. 

  • Poor oral hygiene

Without daily brushing and flossing, food particles will remain in your mouth. Thus, plaque will form, causing bad breath. Also, a neglected tongue will breed bacteria that emit an unpleasant odour.

  • Smoking

Smokers and tobacco users are more likely to have bad breath since tobacco products cause unpleasant odours in the mouth. Aside from acquiring bad breath, smokers can also develop potential gum diseases. 

  • Dry Mouth

Without saliva to clean your mouth, you’ll have a dry mouth. A dry mouth naturally occurs while you sleep, causing morning breath. Hence, having a dry mouth can contribute to bad breath. 

  • Eating certain foods

It is possible to develop bad breath from frequently consuming foods like onions, spices, and garlic. As these foods enter the bloodstream and move to the lungs, they can affect your breath. 

Treatment options for Halitosis

Depending on the cause, treating halitosis can vary. Generally, your dentist will recommend the following dental measures when your bad breath is due to oral health.

1. Mouth wash and toothpaste

 To kill the bacteria that cause plaque build-up. These products also help in lowering gum diseases and cavities. 

2. Dental disease treatment

Potential gum disease can cause deep pockets in the gums, which allow the bacteria to settle. If tha patient has gum disease, the dentist will refer them to a periodontist. Additionally, they may recommend the periodontist replace faulty restorations that may serve as breeding grounds for bacteria.
