What causes bad breath?
Certain foods can cause temporary bad breath, which is generally not considered to be a problem. However, if your bad breath is persistent, it could be a signal that you’re suffering from tooth decay, gum disease or another dental infection.
Persistent bad breath can also be caused by dry mouth, a condition known as xerostomia, due to insufficient saliva production.
