What Causes Bad Breath?
While gum disease is usually associated with breath odor, even healthy mouths can have odor. The same types of bacteria cause both breath odor and gum disease. An increase in harmful oral bacteria, even in otherwise healthy mouths, is by far the most common cause of these persistent and chronic conditions.
Bad Breath Is Not Your Fault!
Bad breath bacteria are found under the gums, on the tongue, the back of the throat and on tonsils. These bacteria break down proteins, producing bad smelling chemicals called ‘volatile sulfur compounds’ (VSCs). The VSC chemicals dissolve in saliva and coat nasal passages, affecting your sense of taste and smell, and impacting your health. When VSCs mix with mouth air, breath has an unpleasant odor.
The following conditions can add to your bad breath symptoms:
- Periodontal disease
- Poor nutrition
- Dental cavities
- Sulfurous foods
- Hunger odor (ketosis)
- Hormonal changes
- Digestive disorders like acid reflux
If You Can’t Control Your Bad Breath Concerns — OraVital Can Help.
Research shows that 75% of the population suffers from some form of periodontal disease, and about 50% from halitosis. Both are evidence of an oral infection. Dental hygiene cleanings alone will not eliminate infectious oral bacteria. Over-the-counter rinses and breath products may briefly mask odors, but they don’t eliminate the underlying infection.
The OraVital System is a uniquely successful, individualized treatment program for bad breath and gum disease. OraVital treatment has helped thousands of patients start new lives after years—or even a lifetime—of living with chronic halitosis
