Bad breath or halitosis is one of the main reasons why people visit the dentist. It may lead to dental anxiety and social embarrassment.
Certain food items like garlic and onion can cause bad breath. This is only temporary. Chronic bad breath is different. It may feel like no matter how many times you brush your teeth, and use different mouthwashes, you still have a bad breath.
In majority of cases bad breath is cause by bacteria in your mouth that release products called Volatile Silver Compounds (VSCs)
You can manage these bacteria levels with appropriate dental hygiene. However, sometimes it can be an indication of an underlying medical problem.
If you think you have a bad breath, speak to a dental health professional about it
Please do not be embarrassed to seek help!
