Halitosis, is caused by bacteria present in the mouth. About 65 % of the population is thereby affected. Temporary halitosis occurs due to a reduction in saliva production during sleep; the classic bad breath scenario. A healthy breakfast and proper teeth and tongue brushing can eliminate bad breath.
In order to increase your chances of having a fresh breath, it is recommended to brush one’s teeth and tongue two to three times a day, to floss daily and use a mouthwash.
Please note that the effectiveness of the mouthwash is only temporary. If used in excess, the mucous membranes of the mouth may peel away causing halitosis.
If bad breath persists despite following these recommendations, please contact your dentist at API dental group, who can answer all your questions related to your condition .
