Common Causes and Cures for Bad Breath

Bad Breath

Bad breath is a condition that nobody wants to face. It can inhibit interactions with others and cause a real sense of embarrassment for anyone it affects. It is important to realize that bad breath can actually be caused by a number of different things, some of which are more serious than others. For that reason, it is useful to consult with a dental care professional if you are battling persistent issues with bad breath.

One of the most common causes of bad breath is the food you eat. Onions, garlic, and other pungent food items can cause you to emit foul odors as you breathe and speak. Failure to stick with a solid dental care program can allow food particles to be left behind in the mouth, thus facilitating the bacterial growth that produces bad breath. Extreme dieters may also suffer from bad breath simply because they do not eat often enough.

Smoking and tobacco use is an extremely common cause of bad breath that is also detrimental to your general health. Tobacco products irritate gum tissues, and oral cancer is another dangerous potential side effect. Conquering your tobacco habit will likely improve your breath and improve your chances of living a long, healthy life.

Gum disease and its buildup of plaque is another common cause of bad breath. Dry mouth resulting from poor saliva production is yet another bad breath culprit. Prescription medications and regular breathing via the mouth are often responsible for this condition and subsequent bad breath. If you have a particularly dry mouth, your family dentistry practitioner may prescribe artificial saliva products or recommend that you indulge in sugarless candies to boost production.

Many illnesses are known to cause bad breath, including diabetes, lung infections, bronchitis, and liver disease. If you suspect that your halitosis is due to such a condition, you should consult with your physician as well as your dental care professional to find solutions.

Do not delay when it comes to making an appointment at your local family dentistry office if your bad breath is causing you real concern. While you may have a dental situation that can be easily resolved, you may also be facing a more serious medical issue. No matter what, following a rigorous dental care regimen each day can help to drastically reduce your bad breath problem.
