Bad breath problems


Bad breath is the common name for the medical condition known as halitosis. There are many different things that can cause halitosis like it can be caused from not brushing your teeth to certain medical conditions. Sometimes, a person's bad breath can blow you away - and he or she may not realize there's a problem. There are tactful ways of letting a person know that he or she has bad breath. You could offer mints or sugarless gum without having to say anything.

Causes of bad breath

Here are three common causes of bad breath:

1. Foods and drinks, such as garlic, onions, cheese, orange juice, and soda
2. Poor dental hygiene, meaning you don't brush and floss as you should
3. Smoking and other tobacco use

Poor oral hygiene leads to bad breath because when you leave food particles in you mouth, these pieces of food can rot and start to smell. The food particles may begin to collect bacteria, which can be smelly, too. Plus, by not brushing your teeth regularly, plaque (a sticky, colorless film) builds up on your teeth. Plaque is a great place for bacteria to live and yet another reason why breath can turn foul.

Prevention of bad breathe

One should not smoke or use tobacco products, of course. And take care of your mouth by brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing once a day. One should brush the tongue, too, because bacteria can grow there. One should always do flossing once a day helps get rid of particles wedged between your teeth. Also, one should visit the dentist twice a year for regular checkups and cleanings. The way a person's breath smells can be a clue to what's wrong. For instance, if someone has uncontrolled diabetes, his or her breath might smell like acetone. If one has bad breath all the time and the reason can't be determined by your dentist, he or she may refer you to a doctor to make sure there is no other medical condition that could be causing it. Sometimes sinus problems, and rarely liver or kidney problems, can cause bad breath. Usually, there is a less complicated reason for a kid's bad breath like what one had for the lunch.
