Occasional bad breath affects everyone from time to time. There are many causes of bad breath and some of them can indicate serious health issues that should be addressed. There are also some very easy to do at home protocols that can eliminate it in most cases.
One of the leading causes of bad breath is smoking and coffee drinking. Simply eliminating these practices or doing oral hygine frequently can assist with the problem.
Another cause is oral disease. If you have cavities and gum disease these can cause significant bad breath. A visit to the dentist will be required to get rid of the cavities. Even old mercury fillings can harbor lots of bacteria to create a bad odor and they need to be removed not just to prevent bad breath but to safe guard your total health from mercury poisoning and further oral decay.
There are protocols that you can do at home to address the gum disease and one of them is certainly flossing daily. But flossing in and of itself will not be enough. You will have to assist with herbal or other oral antiseptics. Links below will help you to find a protocol that is best suited to you. You do need to brush everyday to prevent oral disease also, best two to three times a day. Drinking plenty of water will also assist in keeping the environment healthy and keeping microbial flora in balance.
Although other diseases can cause bad breath always suspect your mouth hygene first as it is the most common cause. If you find that good hygiene is not helping you may want to consult a doctor for issues related to diet, stomach disorders, and possibly even cancer.
Specific disease conditions such as acid reflux, oral or throat infections like tonsillitis, diabetes, thrush, hepatitis, stomach cancer, malnutrition and dehydration all can lead to bad breath.
MMS mouth wash will do much to eliminate oral infections and gum diseases. Aciivate 3 drops of MMS with citric acid and add 2 to 3 ounces of water and rinse your mouth with it. Do this for one two two weeks then once a week. Extended use may cause dental sensitivity.
