Unpleasant breath, commonly referred to as bad breath, is a widely encountered issue with a multitude of underlying triggers.
The persistence of bad breath is typically attributed to the emission of odorous gases by bacteria enveloping the surfaces of your teeth and gums.
Notably, the consumption of potent foods like garlic and onions can further exacerbate this concern. The act of smoking stands as a primary catalyst for bad breath, alongside specific health ailments such as nasal and gastric conditions.
Residues of food that become ensnared between teeth and linger on the tongue have the potential to decay, occasionally culminating in an unfavorable aroma. Hence, it is imperative to adopt a routine of proper and consistent brushing to uphold a revitalizing breath.
Furthermore, the presence of bacteria (plaque) on teeth and gums not only contributes to bad breath but also acts as a catalyst for gum disease and dental decay. Regular visits to your dentist serve a dual purpose – not only in averting bad breath but also in granting the dentist the opportunity to detect and address potential issues of this nature.Back to General Dentistry
