I Brush My Teeth Regularly – Why do I Still Have Bad Breath?
Date: May 31, 2012 Richard Jones

It is terribly frustrating to do everything in your power to ensure that your breath stays as fresh as it can be – and still come up with a not-so-nice smell when you open your mouth! The disappointment of discovering that bad breath is still present – even if you have diligently and regularly brushed your teeth – can be a huge blow to your self confidence, and can have a huge impact on how you interact with other people.

So, what seems to be the matter? Can bad breath still exist even if you regularly and thoroughly brush your teeth? The answer, unfortunately, is YES. Tooth brushing alone may not be enough to completely eradicate bad breath problems, especially in cases when the bad breath symptoms are not coming just from the entire mouth area.

The problem of bad breath may not be eliminated simply by brushing the teeth, or by using an antibacterial mouthwash; this is because the bad smell may be caused by other factors that need to be addressed, before the bad odours can be dealt with. Infections inside the mouth that cause bad breath will need to be treated first, so that the underlying cause of the bad smell can be completely eliminated. Other medical conditions, such as those affecting the respiratory tract or the digestive system, will also need to be properly diagnosed and treated to successfully provide the solution to a bad breath problem that seems to be too troublesome to deal with.

While tooth brushing alone may not have the power to eliminate a persistent bad breath problem (especially if the cause lies somewhere else besides the mouth area), good dental hygiene practices can still go a long way in ensuring that your breath stays as nice-smelling as it can be. Learning what the cause of a bad breath problem will lead to the solution, eventually turning your breath into something that you will not be ashamed of anymore!
