It is usually caused by bacteria growth or breakdown in the mouth. The foods we eat, the beverages we drink, and the amount of saliva can also affect bad breath.
Bad breath can arise from many causes, such as oral and respiratory diseases like gum disease, tooth decay, dry mouth, sinus infections, and tonsillitis, digestive disorders, or systemic diseases, when oral hygiene is not maintained.
Bad breath can be eliminated by using liquids, gargle solutions, or mouth sprays that have a unique scent and taste. However, providing temporary solutions can be challenging without treating the underlying cause of bad breath. Therefore, a dentist or medical specialist should be consulted to make an accurate diagnosis and prescribe appropriate treatment for bad breath.
