Symptoms of Gum Disease
Causes of bad breath
Halitosis is the medical term for bad breath and there are many reasons why people might experience it. These can range from what we eat and drink, to how well we look after our teeth and gums.
If you notice you have halitosis, it could also be a sign you are suffering from something more troublesome, like gum disease.
Bleeding gums and halitosis
There are a number of causes of bad breath. The build-up of plaque bacteria around, on and in between your teeth is one of them. This is because when the bacteria breaks down pieces of food in your mouth, it may release an unpleasant smelling gas.
Halitosis can therefore be an embarrassing and unpleasant condition to suffer from, especially when it comes to interacting in social situations or when you want to get close to someone.
