Halitosis, or bad breath, can be caused by a number of factors. It may indicate a local exposure to malodorous foods, an infection or a deeper more systemic concern. The odour itself relates to volatile compounds that have a high sulfur content and are produced by gram negative bacteria on the tongue, or between and around teeth. Halitosis can be transient (such as from sulfuric foods, tobacco products, or dry mouth) or it can persist. Persistent halitosis can indicate a systemic or local infection, post nasal drip, GERD, kidney disease, or even liver failure, though systemic diseases only account for 10% of these cases.
Cleaning the tongue, by brushing or with mouthwashes, can remove some of the offensive compounds (food remnants, dead cells etc.) that the bacteria feed on, clear away bacteria themselves, or mask the odour for a period of time. But treatment of the underlying cause is ultimately best practice. One of the most effective treatments is to ensure that the oral microbiota is healthy. Fresh Biotics is a source of probiotics that helps to promote a health oral microbiome and supports gastrointestinal health.
