What causes bad breath and how can I cure it?

Additional Details
Watch me in a video about this question on Answers on the Street: http://answersonthestreet.yahoo.com/question/13/What-causes-bad-breath-and-how-can-I-cure-it/

buy something called Liquid Chlorophyll. It will cure foot odor, body odor & bad breath. It cleanses the blood of impurities.

Bad breath is caused by what you eat and bad dental hygiene. When you eat burgers, fries, and onions, the smell doesn't stop there, it continues with the digestive acids in your stomach, where the smell comes through your pores and back up through your esophagous and mouth and sinuses (nose)

I am all for eating onions. Onions are good for you, but most things that people eat are gross for your health and promote bad breath.

Eat stuff that contains Chlorophyll and you won't have this problem. Anything that is green and leafy (lettuce, spinach, Celery) will take care of your breath problems in a jiffy. Also chewing on fresh herbs like mint, not candy does the trick too. I mix plain fresh cranberries with mint or lettuce and chew on it and make sure I eat lots of fruits and vegetables throughout the day. This gets rid of my bad breath for sure.

Don't eat mint candy or chew on minty gum. This just gives you STINKY, MINTY breath. It doesn't clean your breath

You should brush your teeth after you eat, whatever you eat. Also look for toothpastes that have anti-bacterial perilla seed or other similar substances in them. These toothpastes work long after you are done brushing. They are sold at health food stores.

I don't know but there's a doctor in OC by the name of Helen Pensanti, MD who has dealt with this disorder in depth. You
might want to contact her. I;ve seen her on TBN many times.
But not lately.

My cousin is a dental hygienist and she says that the most common cause of bad breath is food particles that are caught in your teeth. It's just like leaving left overs in your fridge for too long...yikes...it begins to stink!!! That is why flossing your teeth is so important. It gets those tiny particles out of the crevices in your teeth and also helps to remove the plaque that forms on your teeth. Brushing at least twice a day and using a good Mouthwash will help, but flossing is a must to keep your teeth free of food particles.

There are a number of possible causes of halitosis. Below we have listed some possible causes of a bad breath condition and have separated them into medical and dental causes.


Sinus infections & abnormal sinus anatomies, post nasal drainage (drips)
Tonsilar infections or tonsiloliths
Lung diseases
Kidney diseases
Liver diseases
Blood disorders
Gallbladder dysfunction
Certain foods

Extensive dental decay
Periodontal (gum) disease
Oral infections or abscesses
Oral cancers
Xerostomia (dry mouth condition). Many medications can contribute to a condition of xerostomia.
Oral conditions resulting from post-nasal drips or discharges
Allergy conditions
A proliferation of specific types of gram (-) anaerobic bacteria

I was told, many times, that halitosis (bad breath) could be caused by stomach conditions and not due to proper dental hygiene, only. I would say an M.D. and Dentist would be equally able to answer the question and cure.

I am 45 years old and I cannot believe the spelling and grammatical errors--especially from people with university degrees. Yahoo has had the foresight to employ spell-check. A nurse who talks about "bad breathe?" and "freshners?" Please, people... I thought this was a knowledge base.

disorders of stomach.bacterial decomposition of acquired food in the mouth.
proper brushing.occational use of spices like meristica; black &long pepper;cloves .kacholam;dried Ginger....

Brush your tough every morning and night.

Gingivitis can be a leading cause of bad breath even if you brush your teeth, gums and tongue. I have found that using a toothpaste or Mouthwash that combats this gum disease really works and has lasting benefits. Also using Hydrogen Peroxide as a Mouthwash (careful not to swallow) works wonders.

stress, nerves, anxiety, indigestion. drink loads of water.

The use of Yogurt will end bad breath in people and pets...this is if bad breath is caused from souring in the stomach....

I have a parrot and learned if his breath was stinky, it was time for yogurt, found it is true for people and dogs too!

One cause is food lodging in a cavity and simply rotting.

Bacteria and left over food bits cause bad breaths. 80% of the bacteria is on the back of your tongue (gag zone). You can cure this problem by brushing your teeth every now and then, try to brush the back of your tongue as much as you can.

Bad breathe can have several causes. Some being bad oral hygiene or cavities, stomach or digestion problems. Ask you physician or dentist

♥rockn suthrn grl♥
brush your freakin teeth or put a mint in your mouth omg its not that hard!!!!

Bacteria, Brush your teeth like you are to, three times a day, and maybe get a tongue scraper, make sure you brush your gums and buy some Listerine also.

That is not nesserily true. Brushing the back of your tougne will cure bad breathe. My husband has really bad breath and he brushes the gag zone every time and still his breath is nasty. He even uses mouth wash and it doesn't help. So that dr. was wrong on the video.

First what causes bad breath is bacteria. Bacteria that you miss when you brushing your teeth in the morning or at night. How you cure is very simple. Just make sure every morning that you brush everywhere (in your mouth). Also go for a dentist appointment regularly. And last but not least use any kind of Listerine when needed. If you remember all that stuff, your mouth should be clean and minty fresh.

For years, I've been taking a supplement in the morning (along with all the other ones I take) called Zinc gluconate. This helps with bad breath, along with other health issues...

Bad breath can be caused by different reasons. First and foremost is the lack of proper dental hygiene. Gingivitis, improper brushing of teeth and gums as well as the tongue. Stomach ulcers could also be a factor. Then there is also the kinds of food that one eats, for instance, Garlic, unions etc. This sometimes can be alleviated by simply brushing right after eating and then with a mouth wash followed by mint/breath freshener.

Acidity of mouth environment (pH<7) causes germs to grow rapidly and producing bad breath. Brushing and flusing helps but is not the cure. People who maintain a (pH) of 7.2-7.5 and normal dental care will hardly experiance bad breath. By eating 80% Alkaline foods and 20% Acidic foods you should be able to achive an acceptable level of pH.

brush with baking soda it will eat the plaque but you have to brush 3 times a day and FLOSS use mouth wash but the baking soda will also whiten your teeth as help them stay healthy

Sometimes simple brushing and flossing will not cure the bath breath. Some people have DENTAL DISEASE that needs to Deep Cleaned by a dentist. Many people have this disease under their gums and do not know it. Some poeple can not prevent this disease with proper brushing and flossing because of teeth alignment, hormone changes etc. Some poeple need to clean their teeth every 3 months instead of every 6 to keep it at bay.

It is very important to for people to become aware of this disease in their mouth. You can have bone loss and loss of teeth, gum damage, or be made to get implants. Most people do not catch it untill very late.

If you have excessive bad breath even with brushing and flossing.... don't be embarrased to see a Dentist for a scalling checkup on your gums!!!!!!!!!

Tooth decay. Improper brushing of teeth. gastric (stomach) disease. Acid reflux.
gum disease
poor oral hygiene
oral cancer
Dry Mouth (xerostomia)
bacteria on the tongue

The bottom line is: Bacteria in the mouth.

Primary ways to fix it:
1. floss every day.
2. brush the back of your tongue when you brush your teeth
3. gargle with something
4. although it's inadvisable if avoidable, if your tonsils are badly encrypted, then you might need to get them taken out. Google "tonsil encryption" for more info.
5. Avoid smelly foods such as coffee, onions, and Garlic.
6 brush frequently

Ummm... everyone thinks the primary cause of bad breath is the mouth..... NO!!!

Its the stomach and colon. People who brush their teeth regularly can still have bad breathe because the odors come from a deeper source.

To rid bad breathe... high fiber diet to keep things moving, drink plenty of water, and a sure fire way... drink Parsley tea or eat Parsley. Parsley is a natural deodorizing herb. Parsley tea can eliminate odors from inside the colon / stomach.

Sinus issues and lungs can be a big source of bad breath as well. When you think about it, when you open your mouth and blow air out, the air is coming from the lungs and odors from internal organ, not the mouth itself. People who have post nasal drip issues tend to have very bad breath, just like smokers.

Of course, brushing your teeth or using Mouthwash is one way to put a masking scent in the mouth, but it does not stop the source of bad odors.

Brushing your tongue will destroy your taste buds (little by little), as well as brushing your teeth with bristles that are too stiff will rub the enamel off your teeth.

There are so many things we do in this society that are due to conditioning and brainwashing people into believing specific things are necassary for daily life, when in it fact it just helps professionals to keep steady income (medical, dentistry, therapy.. etc.).

Whether you call it bad breath or halitosis, it’s an unpleasant condition that’s cause for embarrassment. Some people with bad breath aren’t even aware there’s a problem. If you’re concerned about bad breath, see your dentist. He or she can help identify the cause and, if it’s due to an oral condition, develop a treatment plan to help eliminate it.

What you eat affects the air you exhale. Certain foods, such as Garlic and onions, contribute to objectionable breath odor. Once the food is absorbed into the bloodstream, it is transferred to the lungs, where it is expelled. Brushing, flossing and Mouthwash will only mask the odor temporarily. Odors continue until the body eliminates the food. Dieters may develop unpleasant breath from infrequent eating.

If you don't brush and floss daily, particles of food remain in the mouth, collecting bacteria, which can cause bad breath. Food that collects between the teeth, on the tongue and around the gums can rot, leaving an unpleasant odor.

Bad breath can also be caused by dry mouth (xerostomia), which occurs when the flow of saliva decreases. Saliva is necessary to cleanse the mouth and remove particles that may cause odor. Dry mouth may be caused by various medications, salivary gland problems or continuously breathing through the mouth. If you suffer from dry mouth, your dentist may prescribe anartificial saliva, or suggest using sugarless candy and increasing your fluid intake.

Tobacco products cause bad breath. If you use tobacco, ask your dentist for tips on kicking the habit.

Bad breath may be the sign of a medical disorder, such as a local infection in the respiratory tract, chronic sinusitis, postnasal drip, chronic bronchitis, diabetes, gastrointestinal disturbance, liver or kidney ailment. If your dentist determines that your mouth is healthy, you may be referred to your family doctor or a specialist to determine the cause of bad breath.

Maintaining good oral health is essential to reducing bad breath. Schedule regular dental visits for a professional cleaning and checkup. If you think you have constant bad breath, keep a log of the foods you eat and make a list of medications you take. Some medications may play a role in creating mouth odors. Let your dentist know if you've had any surgery or illness since your last appointment.

Brush twice a day with Fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. Brush your tongue, too. Once a day, use floss or an interdental cleaner to clean between teeth.

Mouthwashes are generally cosmetic and do not have a long-lasting effect on bad breath. If you must constantly use a breath freshener to hide unpleasant mouth odor, see your dentist. If you need extra help in controlling plaque, your dentist may recommend using a special antimicrobial mouth rinse. A Fluoride mouth rinse, used along with brushing and flossing, can help prevent tooth decay.
