Do you have bad breath?

  • If you have bad breath, it can be embarrassing to be around other people, especially if you don’t realize people can smell your bad breath.
  • What’s worse is that you brush your teeth, floss, and chew gum, and you can’t seem to get rid of it.
  • That’s because bad breath is caused by more than just what you ate for lunch or dinner. If you really want to know what else causes bad breath, take a look below:

Causes of Bad Breath

Poor dental hygiene – Infrequent or improper brushing and flossing, which allows bits of food to decay inside the mouth.

Infections in the mouth – Periodontal (gum) disease.

Respiratory tract infections – Throat, sinus or lung infections

Other Reasons for Bad Breath

While brushing the tongue doesn’t have a long-lasting effect on bad breath, it is an important step in keeping your entire mouth healthy.

However, bad breath may be the sign of a disorder, such as a respiratory tract infection, chronic sinusitis, diabetes, gastrointestinal disturbance, liver or kidney ailment.

If your dentist determines that your mouth is healthy, you may be referred to your family doctor or a specialist to determine the cause of bad breath.
