Bad taste bad breath I have a bad taste and bad breath in my mouth all the time even after when i brush my teeth
There : There are many things that can cause bad breath, including the following: diet - when a person does not brush or floss their teeth thoroughly, food particles may remain in the mouth. These particles may rot and cause foul odors. In addition, food particles over time can promote the growth of bacteria, which can also cause foul odors. The bacteria can also lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Foods with strong odors also affect the air a person exhales. Foods commonly known to contribute to bad breath include onions and garlic, exotic spices (such as curry), some cheeses, fish, and acidic beverages such as coffee. Foods are absorbed into the bloodstream and then transferred to the lungs, causing noticeable odors when exhaled. These foods may also cause gastrointestinal upset and belching, which can contribute to bad breath. In addition, certain supplements such as fish oil capsules can contribute to bad breath. Low carbohydrate diets may also cause what is known as 'ketone breath.' so-called 'low carb' diets cause the body to burn fat as its energy source. The end-product of making this energy are ketones, which cause a fruity acetone-like odor on the breath when exhaled. Dry mouth bad breath can also be caused by decreased flow of saliva, which is a vital part of the digestive process and removes odor-causing particles in the mouth. Also called xerostomia, dry mouth may be caused by medications, breathing through the mouth, or salivary gland problems. Tobacco products - in addition to causing bad breath, smoking or chewing tobacco-based products can stain teeth, irritate gum tissue, and exacerbate tooth decay. Certain medical disorders may cause bad breath, for example: gum or periodontal infection, throat infection (pharyngitis or tonsillitis), local infection in the respiratory tract, chronic sinusitis and/or post-nasal drip, chronic bronchitis, diabetes, acid relux, certain liver or kidney disease, sjogren's syndrome (causes xerostomia), and lactose intolerance. Dentures or dental appliances, such as braces, can contribute to bad breath. Most often it is due to food particles that are not properly cleansed from the appliances. Loose-fitting dentures can contribute to sores and localized infections in the mouth, which can cause bad breath. Finally, morning breath is the appearance of bad breath in the morning that results from an overnight accumulation of bacteria in the mouth. Some people breathe through their mouth at night, which can cause dry mouth and worsen morning breath. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
