Having bad breath is considered a social sickness. It makes people avoid you. The degree of intimacy between us and our spouse is diminished as a result. It is even possible for it to prevent a well-earned promotion from happening.
We automatically steer clear of items that have a putrid odor, much in the same way that a bitter taste can warn us away from ingesting something that could be hazardous or poisonous.
To our great relief, foul breath can be treated. The following is a list of some of the most common reasons of foul breath.
Poor Oral Hygiene. There are probably undigested food particles stuck in and around your teeth, which is one of the primary reasons why your breath could be a little funky. Brushing and flossing your teeth on a consistent basis can bring the number of bacteria that cause bad breath down in your mouth.
Dehydration. It is possible for your body to become unable to make saliva if you do not consume enough water. When your mouth is dry, not only is saliva necessary for the digestion of food, but it also makes it easier for plaque and tartar to build.
Keto Diet. Ketosis is a metabolic condition that results from following a diet that is low in carbohydrates. Keto breath is a distinct form of bad breath from the more prevalent varieties of halitosis that can occur when your body consumes stored fat for fuel. A lot of people say that it has a metallic taste, a fruity scent, or a smell that’s kind of like nail paint remover.
Medications. It is well known that certain classes of drugs can result in an unpleasant breath. Some over-the-counter and prescription medications might cause their users to have dry mouth as a side effect. Because of this, bacteria are able to attach to the surfaces of teeth and feast on the starches and carbs that are stuck there.
Digestive Issues. When stomach fluids run back up into the esophagus and into the mouth, a condition known as acid reflux, or more correctly gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), occurs. This is extremely acidic and can cause your mouth to feel dry and give you poor breath.
Coffee Consumption. Coffee is not just acidic but also dehydrating. When it comes to having foul breath, this is like getting hit with two punches at once. Not to mention the consequences of the cream and sugar that a lot of people put in their coffee.
Smoking. You admit to being a smoker. Cigarette smoking has a drying effect on the mouth and creates favorable conditions for the growth of bacteria.
Alcohol Consumption. Consuming an excessive amount of alcohol or rinsing your mouth with an alcohol-based mouth rinse might cause dehydration of the oral tissues. You should limit yourself to one or two drinks, and ensure that you drink enough water to stay hydrated.
Glue-like Candies. Caramels and other sweets that are very sticky have a tendency to embed themselves in the groves and pits that make up the biting surfaces of your teeth. This gives the bacteria that are responsible for a wide variety of bad breath problems food.
Snoring. Snoring is one of the most significant factors that might lead to poor breath. Drying out your mouth can result from breathing via your mouth rather than your nose. You should know by now that having a dry mouth is directly correlated to having foul breath.
Mints can provide a short-term solution to bad breath concerns; however, the underlying source of the problem will still continue to worsen. Schedule a checkup for yourself if you have any reason to believe that other people find the smell of your breath offensive. We can evaluate your oral hygiene in a matter of minutes and not only find out what’s causing your foul breath but also devise a treatment strategy to get rid of it for good.
