Struggling with bad breath can feel embarrassing and isolating. It's not always an easy topic to talk about, let alone ask for solutions. However, bad breath is often preventable with the right information and a few handy tricks up your sleeve.
Let's get to the bottom of common causes of bad breath, as well as how you can avoid it with one easy tool in the future.
Common Causes of Bad Breath
Bad breath — formally known as halitosis — can be caused by a wide variety of factors. Some of the most common reasons include:
Poor oral hygiene: If you're not flossing and brushing regularly, bacteria and trapped food particles can build up and cause some unpleasant scents. Brush twice a day and use floss and mouthwash at least once a day to improve your oral health habits.
Diet: It's no surprise that loading up on garlic, coffee and onions will result in some smelly repercussions. Brush right away after eating or drinking strong flavors to cut down on any lingering after-effects.
Mouth illness: Issues like gum disease can cause gaps to form between your gum and teeth, giving bacteria room to grow. Regular visits to your dentist will help identify and treat these kinds of problems.
Dry mouth: If there's not an ample supply of saliva flowing, it can be hard to keep your breath smelling fresh and clean. Keep your mouth moist by staying hydrated and avoiding tobacco, coffee and alcohol.
