Some Common Causes Of Bad Breath

People get embarrassed in front of friends, colleagues, and strangers with the problem of bad breath. Sometimes bad breath also impacts your social identity as your fellow people hesitate to talk with you. But there is no need to worry as there are many options for treating bad breath. All you need to do is visit a private dentist in Basingstoke as the dentist will find the root cause of bad breath. There is nothing ashamed about telling a dentist about bad breath problems. Moreover, a number of factors can cause the problem of bad breath. We will discuss some common causes in detail.

These are the causes of bad breath problems:

Poor Dental Hygiene: This is the most common cause of bad breath. If someone does not brush and floss every day, then there are more chances of experiencing bad breath. In this case, you just need to brush your teeth twice a day and floss every day. This will remove the plaque stick on your teeth and will also dislodge the leftover food particles.

Food Items: There are some food items that cause bad breath when you eat them.  For instance garlic, onions, some spices, chocolates, etc. Such food items even cause bad breath after you eat and digest them. You should limit your consumption of such foods and you can brush your teeth after eating them. Or else you can also rinse your mouth with mouthwash to combat bad breath.

Smoking: Smoking not only puts you at risk of oral cancer, gum infection, and teeth staining, but it also causes bad breath. When you smoke, it leaves some chemical compounds in the mouth that are mixed with the saliva, thus resulting in bad breath. You can use mouth spray or chew mint or gum after you smoke to mask away bad breath for a shorter duration. But to eliminate bad breath you should quit smoking.

Certain Medications: Some medicines such as antihistamines, sedatives, amphetamines, and antidepressants can cause dry mouth which results in bad breath. In order to combat this, you should drink more water or you can talk to your doctor about this problem.
