What Causes Bad Breath or Halitosis?

Halitosis or chronic bad breath can't be resolved by using that mints, mouthwash or a good brushing can’t help resolving. It remains for an extended amount of time and may be a sign of something more serious. 

What are the causes for Halitosis? 

Dental Issues: Cavities and deeper pockets from gum disease give bad breath bacteria extra places to hide in your mouth that are difficult to clear out when you’re brushing or cleaning between your teeth. Either can contribute to halitosis.

Mouth, Nose and Throat Infections can lead to postnasal drip that may also contribute to bad breath. Bacteria feeds on mucus your body produces when it’s battling something like a sinus infection, leaving you sniffy and stinky.

Diabetis and Oral Health


You might be wondering what the connection between oral health and diabetes is. This disease not only affects the eyes, nerves,  kidneys and  heart  but also your mouth. Uncontrolled diabetes significantly increases the risk of periodontal disease and affects the hard tissues. People suffering from diabetes have much fragile oral health than people who are not suffering from this disease which is why they should take a special care and pay higher attention. Most common issues diabetics face are:
-candidiasis (fungal infection in the mouth cavity)
- periodontitis (degenerative disease of the supporting tissue of teeth)
- tooth loss due to late treatment of periodontitis
- dry mouth
- caries
