What Is Causing My Bad Breath?

Bad Breath

Bad breath stinks, literally and figuratively. However, it isn’t always caused by eating stinky foods like garlic or cheese it’s. It can actually be caused by a multitude of things.

Cigarettes & Alcohol

Smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol are 2 huge causes. Since both dry out your mouth, you are at higher risk for having unhealthy gums, which can lead to infections and multiple stinky oral problems.

Poor Dental Hygiene

Poor dental hygiene is another factor in stinky breath. If you aren’t brushing and flossing regularly, you are leaving behind food particles on your teeth that will decay and smell overtime.

Braces

Braces can also lead to bad breath. Without properly clean braces, food and other bacteria have more room to hide in, creating more of a space for it to wreak havoc.

What You Can Do

Making sure that you are practicing adequate oral hygiene, and staying away from alcohol and tobacco are two huge ways to prevent bad breath.
