The causes of bad breath and how to keep it at bay
Ever leaned in for an intimate moment, sighing in anticipation, only to have the recipient back away in absolute disgust? If you’ve experienced such a tragedy, it’s a sure fire sign that you, my friend, are suffering from a severe case of bad breath. (let's hope.. because if it isn't your breath, it's going to take much more than an article to save your romance)
Sure you can pop breath mints till your tongue falls off and risk diabetes in an attempt to mask (not cure) bad breath, but allow us to let you in on a little secret. So little in fact, that you could keep one on you at all times. Do I have your attention?
Now, before we get to the good part, let’s take a look at some of the factors that cause bad breath in the first place. Ranging from the food you eat (duh) to poor dental hygiene (double duh) here's a list of factors that may be contributing to your bad breath.
Food particles breaking down in and around your teeth can increase bacteria and lead to a bad odour. Bad breath can also be caused by foods such as onions, garlic, and spices.
Not only does smoking cause an unpleasant odour of its own, tobacco use can lead to gum disease, another source of bad breath.
Poor dental hygiene
Food particles remain in your mouth if you don't brush and floss on a daily basis, causing bad breath. Plaque is a white, sticky film that builds on your teeth, and can irritate your gums and eventually form plaque-filled pockets between your teeth and gums if not cleaned away (periodontitis). Bacteria that produces odours can also be trapped on your tongue.
Saliva aids in the cleansing of the mouth by removing particles that cause odors. Because saliva production is reduced, a condition known as dry mouth, or xerostomia, can contribute to bad breath. Dry mouth occurs naturally while sleeping, resulting in "morning breath," which is exacerbated if you sleep with your mouth open. A problem with your salivary glands, as well as some diseases, can cause chronic dry mouth.
Chemicals produced by diseases, such as some cancers, and conditions, such as metabolic disorders, can cause a distinct breath odor. Bad breath is linked to chronic stomach acid reflux (gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD). A foreign body lodged in a nostril, such as a piece of food, can also cause bad breath in young children.
