What Causes Bad Breath?

Diet is one potential cause of bad breath. Odiferous garlic and onions can lead to unpleasant breath. Lack of good oral hygiene may allow bacteria to increase, contributing to gum disease and foul mouth odor. Sometimes bad breath results from another medical condition like dry mouth, diabetes, a lung infection, or others.

How to Get Rid of Bad Breath?

Good oral hygiene, including brushing, flossing, and regular professional teeth cleaning, can help keep gum disease and bad breath at bay. Using a tongue scraper can help as well. In addition, treating an underlying condition such as dry mouth or diabetes, for example, may also help get rid of bad breath.

Periodontal treatment and more frequent visits to the dentist may help if it is from oral cavity.
