Bad breath is one of those things that no one enjoys having, but that everyone has had at one time or another. If you often suffer from bad breath, you may want to determine what’s causing it so that you can prevent bad breath in the future.

There is an assortment of things that can cause bad breath. Luckily, Dr. Aram Cazazian is trained in a wide variety of techniques, including determining and treating the underlying cause of bad breath.

Germs in the Mouth
Bad breath can be caused poor oral hygiene. Plaque, food particles and bacteria that is allowed to linger in the mouth can put off an unpleasant odor. If this is the cause of your bad breath, take care to brush and floss your teeth regularly. If you have any dental restorations like a dental bridge or dentures, take extra care to clean them thoroughly.

Some foods, such as garlic, onions, coffee and spicy food, can result in bad breath. As these foods enter the digestive system, they can affect the individual’s breath. If this happens, bad breath can continue until the food particles leave the digestive system.

Gum Disease
The inflamed gums and decay that is caused by gum disease can cause persistent bad breath. As gum disease progresses, the severity of the bad breath may also progress. Having gum disease treated can eliminate gum disease.
