Are you suffering from bad breath? Does bad breath routinely return even after using products such as mouthwash to help freshen your breath and eliminate the bacteria responsible for it? If so, then it could be the cause of food choices, poor oral hygiene, oral health ailments, and even underlying problems and issues within your body.

In order to protect your oral health from the dangers of bad breath, it is important to understand what is causing it. Most commonly, it is linked to minor issues including the foods and drinks you are consuming. Furthermore, it can be a side effect of medications you may be taking. Also, bad breath is often linked to poor oral hygiene due to a failure to brush and floss on a daily basis.

If you have not already done so, be aware that smoking and chewing tobacco are linked to numerous oral health ailments including producing bad breath and stained teeth. In addition, it can cause tooth loss and cancer. Furthermore, bad breath can even be caused by underlying ailments within your mouth such as gum disease.

If you are not already made aware, it is important to understand that bad breath can arise at any time and be caused by issues deep within your body, not only your mouth. Thus, oral health care treatments are not always the keys to solving your bad breath. This occurs if you have any kidney or liver issues, as well as with respiratory tract infections.
