Bad breath and its causes

About 25% of the population suffer from bad breath, also called halitosis. In 90% of these cases, oral cavity is the source. Carious teeth, gums, gum infections or a covered tongue back serve as a basis for the bacteria. Volatile sulfur compounds as a degradation product of the bacteria are the cause for the pricking smell. In addition, bad breath can be increased by smoking, alcohol or food such as garlic or onions. In addition, wounds or blood in the mouth can also be the source of bad vapors. In the next article we are going to tell you how to prevent it.
