Bad Breath Treatment

Bad Breath

Many different types of bacteria live, work, and play in your mouth.  They hide in the spaces between your teeth and gums, and in the deep crevices of your tongue. They eat food left on your teeth after meals. Feasting on these “leftovers “, bacteria pour out volatile sulfur compounds.  These volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) give breath its foul smell.

These are the same compounds associated with rotten eggs and the reason our breath offends. Trying to cover up this smell with mouthwashes or breath mints does nothing but temporarily mask the odor.
Once you realize that bacteria and the volatile sulfur compounds they create cause bad breath, you can take real steps to eliminate bad breath once and for all by: Removing bacteria from gum and teeth and kill VSC’s.

 In some instances bad breath may be caused by medical conditions (liver, lung, and stomach  problems). In a few instances, it is cause by certain foods. But bad breath from food quickly goes away. Over 95% of bad breath is caused by bacteria (germs).
