BAD BREATH? SOME REASONS WHY


1. You haven't eaten the whole day

Skipping meals is a surefire way to have bad breath. That's because when we don't eat, we don't produce as much saliva.

2. Breathing through your mouth
Mouth breathing may make your saliva evaporate, which can dry out your mouth and reduce your mouth's ability to rinse away food particles.

3. You ate some smelly foods
Garlic and onions are two famous offenders, but other culprits include spices, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and radishes.

4. You just think you have bad breath
Up to 1% of people may have a disorder called halitophobia-a false belief that they have bad breath. It's a serious condition, and one that be extremely debilitating.

There's multiple reason why anyone of us can have bad breath. Seeing a Dentist can be a breath of fresh air, both for you, and people around you.
