Everyone tends to suffer from bad breath from time to time. Many people experience the occurrence of morning breath, which is caused by the accumulation of bacteria in the mouth while you sleep. But for those who have bad breath that they can’t get rid of, the following may be to blame:
Dry Mouth – Since production of saliva helps to cleanse the mouth and prevent bacteria from accumulating, having a dry mouth may be causing bacteria to break down dead cells on the tongue.
Poor Oral Hygiene – If you don’t keep up with your dental hygiene and clean your teeth appropriately, food that is stuck in between teeth start to build bacteria, not only emitting a foul smell but also causing the teeth to start rotting.
Illness – Certain illnesses such as stomach viruses, gum disease, chronic bronchitis, kidney or liver disease, chronic sinusitis, or infection of the respiratory tract, mouth, or throat can all produce a foul odor in the mouth.
Once the cause of halitosis has been determined by our experienced dentists, treatment for bad breath is typically simple.
