Halitosis, known as bad breath, is an uncomfortable condition that disturbs a person and can adversely affect their daily life. The reason for the odor in the mouth is usually due to the person’s inability to maintain adequate oral hygiene. However, despite the provision of oral hygiene, halitosis may develop due to other diseases.
What causes halitosis?
Generally, it is physiologically normal to have an irritating odor in the morning. It is the result of food accumulation in the previous evening. This odor is not permanent and will dissipate after dental brushing and oral care.
What causes bad breath even after brushing?
Is bad breath a sign of illness?
