3 Surprising Causes of Bad Breath

...and what you can do about it

Let's be honest, you've probably had embarrassing bad breath at some point in your life.

Bad breath, also known as Halitosis, is very common. According to the American Dental Association, at least 50% of people have had halitosis in their lifetime.

Most people reach for gum, mints and mouthwashes to fight bad breath and, but many of these products are only temporary solutions and don't treat the cause of the problem.

Here are 3 surprising causes of bad breath and what you can do about them...


The main cause of bad breath is bacteria that lives in your mouth that produces smelly volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) as a byproduct of breaking down the food particles and skin cells in your mouth.

And the back of the tongue, with its many grooves and crevices, is the perfect place for this odor-producing bacteria to grow.

What to do about it: Use a tongue scraper to remove the foot particles that accumulate at the back of your tongue.


Saliva helps keep your mouth clean and reduces odor by washing away bacteria.

Dry mouth naturally occurs during sleep, leading to "morning breath" and can worsen if you
sleep with your mouth open. Taking certain medications can also inhibit saliva production and can lead to bad breath.

What to do about it: Avoid dehydrating foods or drinks (like alcohol, coffee, soda) and frequently sip on water to keep your mouth moist. Chewing stimulates your salivary glands, so chewing on sugar-free gum and sugar-free candy can also make a difference.

If you continue to experience chronic dry mouth, it may be caused by a problem with your salivary glands or some other health issue, in which case you should speak with your doctor.


If you don't brush and floss on a regular basis, a colorless, sticky film of bacteria (known as plaque).

If you don’t remove plaque promptly from teeth, it eventually hardens into tartar. You can’t remove tartar by brushing, and it can cause small openings between your teeth and gums that trap food, bacteria and plaque, causing a strong odor.

What to do about it: Visiting your dentist regularly is important, but a professional cleaning only removes plaque for a short time.

As soon as you eat or drink, the odor-causing bacteria in your mouth repopulate, which is why a good at-home oral care routine is essential.

Visiting the dentist to get your plague and tartar removed can be expensive, but there is an easy way for you to get clean, healthy, and beautiful looking teeth (that brushing can never achieve) without getting expensive procedures at your dentist.
