Gum disease can also be a cause of halitosis. Lack of brushing and flossing creates and environment for bacteria to breed in the mouth. Not only can this bacteria break down gum tissue, but the waste product emits an odor that any dentist can recognize as gum disease.
Gum disease occurs over a period of time, but there are also short-term halitosis facilitators. It goes without saying that smoking causes halitosis. A single cigarette can contain thousands of chemicals so the chances of some of them emitting a foul odor are very good. Most smokers are not inclined to brush after every cigarette either, compounding the problem.
Smoking can also facilitate dry mouth and gum disease which in and of themselves cause halitosis. Dry mouth can also cause halitosis. Saliva can kill bacteria that spawn bad breath. Many people wake up in the morning with bad breath because the body’s saliva producing processes are mitigated during sleep.
Sinus conditions are another cause of halitosis. The post nasal drip of someone with a sinus condition drips onto the back of the tongue. Many times this discharge has a bad odor, and it ultimately presents itself as halitosis. There are ways of naturally curing halitosis. If these simple remedies are not effective, it may be a sign of more serious medical problems.
Brushing your teeth at least twice a day, three times being preferable, will help remove offending food particles that can promote halitosis. Flossing goes hand in hand with brushing. It will get between the teeth where a toothbrush cannot reach.
Avoid foods that cause bad breath. Over consumption of meats, coffee, garlic, and vinegar are a few things that can be avoided or at least consumed in moderation.
