Everyone wakes up with a bad breath, but it easily goes away with a few morning oral hygiene habits for most people. However, that might not be the case for a few people, as they may struggle with bad breath throughout their day. This can be a topic that you might be embarrassed to bring up; however, this is a bad problem that must be addressed.

You, or someone you love, might be suffering from the problem of stinky breaths. You walk into your office, and as you talk to your colleagues, you distinctly notice their irritated facial expressions as they try moving away from your smelly mouth. This condition can only disinterest people near you, and they shall portray you as a highly unattractive being. Think about it yourself. Would you like to talk to someone whose mouth stinks?

Why Does the Breath Stink?

Wind moving around in our world is the carrier of smell throughout, whether it be the sweet smell of flowers or the rotten smell of the dump yard. Wind does not know how to segregate good smell from bad smell, hence bringing them all to the tip of our nose. Similarly, bad breath also travels to other people’s noses.

Diet plays a major role in contributing to odors in your mouth from compounds absorbed into your bloodstream. Just think about the garlic bread or the smell of onions that excretes through your pores. Sometimes bad breath is also the result of certain medical conditions like:

  • Diabetes,
  • Chronic bronchitis,
  • Liver diseases,
  • Infections in the respiratory tracts.

Various medications can also contribute to the problem by changing saliva production and causing mouth dryness. If you suspect yourself having bad breath, visit your doctor and consult with him.

The Real Culprit

Studies prove that bad breath is directly related to the bacteria thriving in your mouth. Improper brushing and flossing habits can accumulate food debris in your mouth, resulting in cavities and bad bacteria. In addition, millions of these bacteria produce sulfur gases and other compounds that smell utterly unpleasant.

It is sometimes hard to detect your stinking breath, so try sniffing your floss to know about your oral condition. Cavities, unclean dentures, gum diseases, or even tonsil problems can contribute to stinky breath. Visit your doctor regularly, clean your mouth, and ask for expert advice to get better results.
