Bad breath can be caused by a range of different problems, some of these include:
- Diet – certain types of food you eat can cause bad breath, this is usually temporary and disappears after brushing teeth.
- Poor oral hygiene – If you do not take care of your oral health by brushing and flossing often it can cause bad breath.
- Underlying dental conditions – Dental problems that have been left untreated can cause bad breath. Examples: tooth decay, gum disease or infection.
- Smoking – smoking results in residue that sticks onto teeth and gums
Although it may not appear to be a serious problem, like most dental conditions, if you leave bad breath untreated it can lead to further complications and cause more serious issues such as gingivitis or periodontitis (gum disease).
