Most individuals at some point in time in their life have experienced halitosis. Halitosis, also known as bad breath, is an oral health condition in which foul odors emanate from your mouth. Bad breath can be caused by bacteria and plaque buildup in your mouth, lingering food residue, oral health ailments, and deep underlying issues within your body. In order to treat your bad breath, it is important to first understand what is causing it.
If you have bad breath that is being caused by your mouth, mouthwash may be able to treat it. This includes bad breath that is caused by foods you eat and the habits you partake in. If you have poor oral hygiene, it is important to first rinse away all bacteria and plaque buildup. However, if bad breath continues to return despite effective oral health care cleanings, the use of mouthwash, and the avoidance of bad habits, it may be caused by an underlying illness.
Gum disease, which is an infection of your gum tissue, can contribute to bad breath. In order to ensure that bad breath does not continue to return, it is important to first treat your gum disease. In addition, bad breath can be caused by underlying ailments deep within your body. This includes any liver or kidney problems and ailments that you may be suffering from. In addition, respiratory tract infections have been known to cause bad breath.
