Did you know what causes bad breath?
Also called halitosis, bad breath can be caused by a number of issues.
Some of the foods we eat can give us temporary bad breath.
Garlic, onions, coffee, spicy or fragrant foods can leave your mouth less than fresh. Brush your teeth, chew sugar-free gum, or use mouthwash for a burst of freshness.
Like smoking and tobacco use not only cause bad breath, they can create oral cancers, stain teeth and irritate your gums. Consider a tobacco-free lifestyle to reduce the negative effects.
Bad breath can be caused by dental issues such as gum disease or cavities. Crowded teeth or ill-fitting dental appliances can also cause bad breath. See your dentist rule out any oral care issues as a culprit.
