Do you ever wonder if someone offering you a piece of gum is really a hint that your breath could stop a mac truck? Are you looking for a way to make sure that you are not offending others by breathing? There are several common causes of bad breath and the best way to know how to prevent it or how to stop it, is to know what is causing it.
One of the first reasons for bad breath includes foods that cause odor. For the majority of the time, this smell is created by a protein breakdown in the mouth. Foods such as onions, garlic, coffee, tea and some spices can significantly contribute to bad breath. Gum disease and tooth decay can also be another major supplier when it comes to halitosis.
Medical problems and conditions can be leaders in the cause of bad breath. Certain disorders such as chronic tonsil infections, oesophageal-gastro reflux, sinus and respiratory infections are consistent providers of constant halitosis. Be sure to check on the medications that you are taking and know that some medications have the ability to turn your breath into an odor-producing factory.
