CAUSES OF BAD BREATH

YOUR MOUTH ISN'T WATERING
DRY MOUTH IS CAUSED WHEN SALIVA PRODUCTION IS LOW

Saliva washes away food and bacteria.
Without it, food particles begin rotting
in the mouth and can also lead to cavities.
The perfect recipe for bad breath!

Causes of dry mouth:

  • Dehydration
  • Mouth breathing
  • Certain medication
  • Anxiety
  • Drugs
  • Salivary gland disorders
  • Bulimia and anorexia
  • Pregnancy

YUM ON THE PLATE
YUCK ON THE BREATH

The smelling sulfur compounds in onion and garlic get absorbed in the blood stream and reappear as bad breath.

FIZZ AND FOOD ARE UP
TO NO GOOD

Sugar in soda and leftover bits of food when combined with bacteria produce acid which can lead to cavities. If left untreated, bad breath follows.

SMOKING IS INJURIOUS
TO BREATH!

We're pretty sure you don't need to be told about smoker's breath.
