TIMESINDONESIA, JAKARTABad breath could make you less confident. Sometimes, it won't go away no matter how often you brushed your teeth. It's because the cause were not in your mouth but somewhere else. Let's take a look where are they came from.

1. Dry mouth

Saliva helps keep your mouth clean by removing food particles that lead to bad breath. When the production of saliva slackens or stops, a condition known as xerostomia, bad breath is likely to follow.

This happens naturally while you sleep, which is why most people find their breath to be a bit stinky upon waking up. But if the problem persists throughout the day, treatment may be worth considering.

2. Postnasal drip, respiratory and tonsil infections, sinus problems

Most bad breath is caused by odor-causing bacteria. When bacteria stuck your nasal organ there then the bad breath follow through.

3. Digestive Issues

Poor digestion, constipation, or bowel disorders can all cause unfortunate odor on the breath. If you frequently experience acid reflux, the odors from recently consumed foods may easily make their way back up the esophagus and out the mouth, causing bad breath.

4. Certain prescription medication

Usually, prescription medications eill give you dry mouth effect. When your mouth is dry, when saliva production decreases, the environment for odor-causing bacteria thrives. Any extended period of time with cotton mouth can cause discomfort and lead to bad breath.

5. Smoking

According to a study published on Hong Kong Medical Journal 2004, smoking is the most common cause of bad breath. Tobacco products—whether it’s cigarettes, chew, or pipe—all cause bad breath and lead to much more serious oral health issues. Apart from leaving your mouth smelling like an ashtray, they will make your mouth even drier than it should be. (*)
