Halitosis, also called Bad Breath, can be embarrassing and, in some cases, may even cause anxiety. Simply put, it may affect your personal, social, or business relationships.

It’s not surprising that all store shelves are filled with chewing gum, mints, mouthwashes, and other products to fight this bad breath. Unfortunately, these products are only temporary cover-ups because they don’t address the root cause of the problem.

What Causes Halitosis?

Certain foods, health conditions (like a dry mouth), and habits (such as smoking tobacco) are among the leading causes of bad breath. In some instances, dental problems can also produce an odor, including decayed or abscessed teeth, gum diseases, etc.

How does Halitosis occur?

Typically, bad breath occurs when bacteria collect on the surface and back of the tongue where bacteria thrive in such an environment. In many cases, you can overcome bad breath with consistent proper dental hygiene by making many lifestyle changes, such as daily brushing your teeth and tongue after eating, using dental floss, and drinking plenty of water.
