One of the most unsettling and unpleasant conditions a person can have is bad breath, or halitosis as it is known medically. There are numerous causes for this issue, and it may occasionally be a sign of something far more serious.
1. Consuming foods with excessive spices and odors
It is common knowledge that foods with strong flavors, such as garlic and chili peppers, can cause bad breath. This is because they enter our bloodstream and may affect our ability to breathe until they totally depart our body. You may have observed that even after brushing your teeth, the taste and smell of these meals still remain in your tongue.
2. Not regularly flossing and brushing your teeth
Since they get rid of the tiny food particles that become stuck in our mouths, these two activities are far more significant than we may imagine. In our mouths, these particles will accumulate and begin to decompose, which will produce an unpleasant stench. Additionally, if you don't frequently brush your teeth, plaque will build up and create gum inflammation.
3. Health issues, including conditions like dry mouth,
When someone's mouth doesn't generate enough saliva, they have dry mouth, or Xerostomia as it is known in the medical profession. Because of this, the food particles left inside their mouth are unable to be completely sucked out, and as a result, they become trapped and begin to decompose. To avoid this, drink a lot of water during the day to keep your mouth hydrated.
4. Quick-fix diets
In addition to being unhealthy and risky in general, crash dieting can also cause halitosis. This is possible because these diets, which are low in carbs, produce energy at varying rates. A lot of ketones, which can be very offensive-smelling, are produced when our body starts consuming all the protein to make energy.
