Bad Breath Causes, Treatments, and Prevention

Bad Breath Treatment Albury

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, can be very embarrassing, especially when other people comment on it, making you feel self-conscious about talking and even smiling.

Most cases of bad breath occur after having a meal with ingredients with strong odours or after going a long time without brushing.

These cases are resolved by brushing or gargling with mouthwash.

On the other hand, chronic halitosis occurs frequently and can only be temporarily relieved with proper hygiene.

This is because chronic bad breath does not exist on its own; it’s often a symptom of a more serious problem and can’t be resolved without the proper treatment.

Causes of Bad Breath

The common causes of bad breath are:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Food stuck in between teeth and around the tongue
  • Strong-smelling foods and drinks
