7 Surprising Causes Of Bad Breath

Anyone with chronic bad breath understands the embarrassment and frustration associated with this condition. As unpleasant as it is, rest assured we can help at Jeff Gray DDS | Espire Dental in La Mesa CA.

Possible Causes for Bad Breath

  1. Poor oral hygiene
  2. Digestive problems
  3. Systemic infection
  4. Bacteria on dentures
  5. Gum disease
  6. Food particles on tonsils
  7. Dry mouth

If your bad breath is the result of poor oral hygiene, you’re in luck; this is one of the easiest types to treat. Make sure you brush for a full three minutes before you climb into bed, and don’t forget to floss.

People who have no idea how long they brush can set a timer. There is probably one on your smartphone. In addition to cleaning tooth surfaces, scrub your tongue! Then take the time to floss around each tooth to wash away the plaque between your teeth and keep your gums healthy.

You can also brush after each meal to prevent food debris from sitting on their teeth. In addition to freshening your breath, brushing after each meal will improve your dental health.
