Bad Breath (Halitosis) Causes

When it comes to bad breath, there are typically three main causes we see at Encanto Family Dental Care which include:

  • Poor dental hygiene. When patients neglect to properly care for their oral health, bad breath is extremely common. We recommend brushing, flossing and scraping your tongue at least twice a day.
  • Gum disease. Patients that neglect their dental health are often affected by gum disease, a chronic infection and inflammation of the gums. Better dental hygiene and routine visits to your dentist can help manage gum disease and the associated symptoms such as halitosis (bad breath).
  • Dietary/lifestyle choices. There are many decisions that patients make on a daily basis that can contribute to bad breath, including tobacco use and even eating onions. Ditching bad habits and cleaning your smile after eating can help reduce these issues.

There are also a number of health conditions which can cause specific odors to emit from the mouth. In the event we think there may be a more serious cause of your bad breath, you will be referred to a medical specialist.
