Mouth Odor: What Causes It, and How To Prevent It

Smell Better ... Live Happier

 

Mouth odor.

 

No one wants it, but at some point, we've all had it. Serious cases of mouth odor, though, affect more than just your oral health.

Today, one in four people all around the world experience life-changing symptoms of mouth odor, and that number is growing. (1)

Yet, for many years, this oral care problem has been thought of as taboo. But now is the time to take it out of the shadows, and into the limelight.

 

WHY?

 

Because it’s preventable. And new studies are revealing that REMEDYING this debilitating health problem is now safer and easier than ever!

In this blog we talk about what mouth odor is, what causes it, and how to prevent it today!

 

WHAT IS MOUTH ODOR

 

Mouth odor is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, there’s a whole field of medical study for it.

Also called halitosis, fetor ex ore, oral malodor, fetor oris, and fetero oris, mouth odor is the reason for a whole host of mouthwashes, chewing gums, mints, and dangerous over-the-counter oral care products meant to cover up the problem, not fix it. (2)

Though it’s common, that doesn’t make its symptoms any less palatable for those who have it. Mouth odor is actually the third most common reason people go to the dentist, right after gum problems and tooth decay. (1)

This has caused mouth odor to just become a way of life for many people, which often leads to health problems extending beyond just the mouth. (3)

 

FUN FACT: Halitosis in Latin and Greek literally means a "diseased state of breath." (4)

 

Mouth odor is nothing new. In fact, medical records documenting cases of mouth odor date back over 3500 years to ancient Egypt! (5)

Though ALL-NATURAL REMEDIES have improved, that doesn't make life any easier for some suffering with mouth odor.

That's because one form of mouth odor - called psychogenic halitosis - causes sufferers to not know they actually have mouth odor. This kind of mouth odor can lead to social problems and mental health disorders down the line. (6)

 

WHAT CAUSES MOUTH ODOR

 

 

Usually, mouth odor is caused by bacteria on your teeth or tongue. Therefore, mouth odor is normally contributed to poor oral hygiene. (7)

Mouth odor has also been linked to other oral health problems, such as gum disease (periodontitis), a buildup of plaque, and tooth decay. (8)

Another common reason for mouth odor is dry mouth. When you lack enough saliva, your mouth can't flush away the bacteria and food particles it needs to, leading to the release of toxins and, thus, mouth odor.  (9)

 

FUN FACT: Morning breath is not mouth odor. If you struggle with mouth odor even after your morning routine, then it's time to make an ALL-NATURAL SWITCH today! (10)

 

There are also some common foods that cause mouth odor. The most notable ones are spices, garlic, and onions, but all food and drinks can cause mouth odor without EFFECTIVE NATURAL ORAL CARE. (7)

 

How does food cause mouth odor?

 

Food creates mouth odor through the release of sulfuric compounds created by the leftover bacteria in your mouth.

 

 

The chemicals released during these reactions are then absorbed into your bloodstream, taken to your lungs, and then exhaled – leading to mouth odor. (11)

In rare cases, tonsil problems, bacterial infections, cancer, liver and kidney disease, and diabetes can cause mouth odor, so it’s best to see a medical professional if you have any questions about your health. (12)

 

MOUTH ODOR AND YOU

 

 

As mentioned before, mouth odor is not just a problem in your mouth. Mouth odor affects sufferers' quality of life, which can lead to deeper emotional and psychological problems.

One study found that sufferers of mouth odor considered their quality of life to be twice as negative as those without mouth odor.

In addition, 56% of people with mouth odor mentioned having a limitation, disability, or discomfort as a result of their mouth odor, nearly three times more than those without it. (13)

 

FUN FACT: Alcohol and tobacco can contribute to mouth odor, so be sure to stay clean with only ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE PRODUCTS! (14) (15)

 

A new study has revealed mouth odor links to anxiety, depression, and stress, which may require psychological assistance for sufferers of mouth odor. (16)

But this is all fixable. In fact, good oral care has also been linked to a positive outlook on life and an overall healthier lifestyle.

With ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE, your oral health will improve. And with better oral health, you will find healthier personal relationships, a better professional life, and overall greater happiness and freedom. (17)

 

So now that we know what mouth odor is and its many negative consequences, let's take a look at how to prevent it.

 

HOW TO PREVENT MOUTH ODOR

 

 

The best way to prevent mouth odor is by taking the necessary steps to improve your oral health:

 

1. Food particles can get caught in your teeth. So, first thing's first, brush your teeth at least twice a day. (1)

Artificial toothpastes contain dangerous chemicals that can make your oral care worse.
