Recurring bad breath could be a sign of oral health failure. Bad breath, also known as halitosis, is the product of a nasty or foul odor emanating from your mouth. It is often caused by deficient oral hygiene but it may also be a symptom of a far more serious ailment within your mouth or body. Everything from the foods you eat to bad habits such as smoking can all play a crucial role in the causes of bad breath, so consider following these important guidelines:

– If you have an undisclosed disease such as periodontal disease, also called gum disease, it may be causing bad breath.
– One of the easiest and quickest ways to eliminate most standard forms of bad breath is by using mouthwash.
– Plaque buildup that lingers in your mouth can cause bad breath.
– Bad breath can be accredited to poor oral hygiene habits such as the forgetting to floss and brush daily.
– Medications that produce dry mouth symptoms can lead to bad breath.
– Countless diseases and illnesses cause bad breath, including respiratory tract infections and liver and kidney problems.
