We were asked "why do I have bad breath?"
There are many causes of bad breath. One of the most common causes is gum disease. Gum disease creates pockets around the teeth.
These pockets are hard to clean. As food and bacteria collect there, they cause odor. Gary comments that in a closed space such as an airplane he can smell gum disease.
Another common cause of bad breath is dry mouth. If you have dry mouth, exercise can make it worse. Do exercise. Just keep your mouth moist.
Do not ignore chronic bad breath. You should know that many diseases can be diagnosed from the gases in your breath. A physician or an ear, nose and throat specialist is the doctor to see.
Mouth rinses are helpful in controlling bad breath. Mouth rinses containing alcohol can contribute to dry mouth. Many mouth rinses do not contain alcohol.
