Bad Breath Causes
Top Causes of Bad Breath
One of the main causes of bad breath is nicotine use. Smoking dries out your mouth and is one of the leading causes of gum disease, both of which can cause halitosis. Bad breath from smoking is extremely common, and though it can be alleviated, it will continue as long as the smoking persists.
Poor Oral Hygiene
The most common cause of bad breath is poor oral hygiene. A lack of brushing or flossing can lead to bacteria that form on the teeth, gums and mouth, to react with food stuck between the teeth and around the gum line. This causes the release of a gas, and that gas causes breath to smell unpleasant. If bad breath persists, it can be a sign of gum disease or tooth decay. By brushing, flossing, maintaining a good daily oral care routine and by visiting your dentist regularly for check-ups, you can combat bad breath.
Food & Drink
Strongly flavoured foods like garlic, onion and even alcohol can cause your breath to smell unpleasant. The good news is that this bad breath is temporary and can easily be alleviated, or you can simply avoid these foods to minimise bad breath.
