Have you ever wondered what causes bad breath? Even though you may brush your teeth twice a day, you can still be prone to having bad breath.
Bad breath is usually caused by the breakdown of food. However, other culprits can include poor dental hygiene, dry mouth, disease infection or use of tobacco and severe dieting. Most causes include:
- Food particles from stinky foods (garlic, onions etc.)
- Respiratory infections
- Acid Reflux
- Poor Oral Hygiene
Treat bad breath by:
- Brushing twice a day and flossing daily
- Using a tongue scraper to eliminate odour causing bacteria on your tongue
- Visit your dentist twice a year for cleanings and checkups
