Just because we are wearing face masks in public spaces these days does not mean we should neglect bad breath.
Did you know that bad breath can point to deeper rooted health issues? Bad breath is one of the several symptoms for the following health conditions:
#1 Gum Disease
Caused by plaque build-up on teeth, gum disease can lead to damage of the gums and jawbone if left untreated.
#2 Yeast Infections
Candida is a type of yeast infection that typically nests within the mouth and belly.
#4 Dry Mouth
#5 Respiratory Tract Infections
Pneumonia and bronchitis are two examples of these respiratory tract infections.
#6 Chronic Sinus Infections
#7 Postnasal Drip
This condition occurs with an overproduction of mucus.
#8 Acid Reflux
In addition to regurgitation (i.e. the occurrence of acid rising back up into the throat or mouth), heartburn is also a symptom of acid reflux.
#9 Liver and Kidney Issues
Note that the conditions listed arise with a variety of symptoms; bad breath is just one of these symptoms. Contact your dentist and doctor if you experience persistent bad breath.
