Treat and cure bad breath, starting today!
What is yours?
Garlic and onions - Their odor originates in the lungs, not mouth. Such foods, once digested, pass to the bloodstream, through the lungs, then out at every breath.
Poor oral hygiene - Oral bacteria thrive, rotting food debris in the mouth.
Consumption of tobacco - Tobacco stinks!
Reduced saliva - Whether temporary (during sleep, causing morning breath) or chronic (dry mouth, xerostomia), saliva ceases to wash food debris & combat bacteria.
Medical problems - Sinus infection, postnasal drip, bronchitis are culprits.
Gum disease - Bacteria under gums rot food.
Diabetics - Due to ketoacidosis, the body expels excess ketone (acetone specifically) through breathing.
Babies, toddlers - Objects inside nose, dirty pacifier or thumb, tonsillitis, regurgitated food (GERD).
Pregnant moms - Dehydration, poor digestion, vomiting, extra plaque due to extra snacks.
