Bad Breath – Halitosis

Bad breath (halitosis) affects approximately 65% of the population. Temporary halitosis is caused by a decrease in saliva production during sleep, combined with reduced tongue and cheek movements. Eating a healthy, balanced breakfast and brushing your teeth and tongue should get your breath smelling fresh again.

Causes

  • Gum inflammation and disease.
  • Inadequate oral hygiene.
  • The presence of cavities and defective restorations.
  • Food particles caught between the teeth.
  • Sources of infection.
  • Breathing through the mouth.
  • Smoking.
  • Reduced saliva flow.
  • An accumulation of bacteria and food debris on the tongue.

Mouthwash masks bad breath temporarily. If it is used excessively, it can irritate the mouth’s mucous membranes and aggravate the problem. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene and visit the dentist regularly. If your bad breath persists, consult us. Our team will give you the right advice to solve the problem.
