Did you know most of the bacteria responsible for bad breath are found on your tongue?
Here are the main causes for bad breath, known as Halitosis.
- Poor dental hygiene: irregular brushing leads to bacterial accumulation on teeth and tongue. - Dry mouth: encourages the growth of bacteria. Certain beverages like alcohol and caffeine could induce bad breath.
- Some medical conditions: diabetes, bronchitis, acid reflux and stomach conditions.
- Food: like garlic, spices, or fish. Also, a low-carb diet promotes the production of ketones due to increased fat burning.
- Smoking: it also stains the teeth and increases the risk of gum disease.
