Whether it be from your cherished morning coffee or those onions you had in your lunch salad, bad breath happens to all of us. However, when a mint or mouthwash doesn't seem to help, and we begin noticing persistent, recurring bad breath, this can have a severe impact on our relationships, career, and confidence.

So, what causes bad breath? 

Also known as halitosis, bad breath may be a chronic or temporary problem caused by poor dental hygiene, pungent foods and beverages, smoking, dry mouth and more.

Bad breath may also occur from underlying health conditions like

  • Periodontal disease
  • A sinus infection
  • Postnasal drainage
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Diabetes
  • Sleep apnea
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disorder

Thankfully, in most cases, with a few simple fixes, you can rid yourself of bad breath and get back to laughing, talking and smiling with confidence.

  • Using an antimicrobial mouthwash to kill bacteria
