Bad Breath (Halitosis): Causes, Diagnosis and Treatment


The most common cause of bad breath is poor oral hygiene.
Bacteria that build up on a person's teeth, tongue and gums can cause plaque (the soft, white deposit that forms on the teeth's surface), gum disease and tooth decay.

The bacteria combine with saliva to break down food particles and proteins -- this releases an unpleasant-smelling gas.
