Are you embarrassed by what comes out of your mouth? Or maybe, you do not even perceive it, but your friends, family or colleagues have mentioned it to you. Or even, it may be that people stare at you strangely when you open your mouth, strangers especially and never tell you why. Read on to understand what bad breath is all about, why it may be happening and how you can kick it out of your mouth!
BAD BREATH (also know as HALITOSIS)
Halitosis simply means bad breath. Bad breath can be caused by numerous factors, but most commonly caused by a dirty mouth. The two major causes of a dirty mouth are: lack of frequent and adequate brushing and less commonly, a more serious condition like: diabetes mellitis.
Other causes of Halitosis are:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Tooth decay
- Gum diseases
- Mouth and nose infection
- Gastric reflux
If you have bad breath, maybe you were told by a friend or relative, you can start by brushing your teeth properly twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and medium bristled toothbrush. If it still persists then visit your dentist.
It is important that you visit your dentist, to be sure which of one these listed causes may be the reason for your bad breath. It is best to visit your dentist routinely to identify any issues you may have with your teeth.
