As embarrassing as bad breath is, there is good news for sufferers. Bad breath can be controlled and prevented by proper dental care and a few good home remedies.
Bad breath, also called halitosis, can be caused by a number of factors such as smoking, dry mouth, gum disease, gastrointestinal issues, and sinus infections. But probably the most common cause of bad breath is ordinary, everyday bacteria. It’s normal to have bacteria in our mouths, but problems arise when they escape regular cleaning by hiding in between our teeth and on our tongue.
