As we often talk about, there are numerous causes of bad breath that may not be preventable, but are treatable with TheraBreath products. Just to list a few, these treatable causes include tonsil stones,
odorous foods, dry mouth, postnasal drip
and bad oral hygiene.
Of the preventable bad breath issues, which causes a great deal of bad breath and can be stopped? A group of dental researchers from Kuwait’s College of Health Sciences wanted to find out exactly that answer. This group surveyed more than 1,500 people and of that group, 23% admitted to having some form of bad breath. As this was self-disclosure, the actual number of those inflicted with halitosis might have been higher, don’t forget that some people that have halitosis don’t even know they do!
What causes these people to have halitosis? Some factors included smoking, use of a toothbrush less than once a day (this group was more than two and half times more likely to have bad breath), smoking, chronic sinusitis, gastric problems and not flossing.
While there are many factors that can cause foul breath, many of them are preventable. It’s always wise to brush, floss and rinse at least twice a day – using TheraBreath products will help to keep your breath fresh all day.
