Having bad breath always makes for awkward social encounters, which is why so many of us regularly bring mints and gum with us wherever we go.
Bad breath can be caused by a variety of factors. The most common causes are often poor dental practice or other health problems, or even the food you’ve eaten that day.
When halitosis is caused by these factors, however, there are easy solutions: floss, brush, and use mouthwash after every meal; talk to your doctor about your dietary habits; chew gum, pop a mint, or use mouth wash for a quick (albeit temporary) fix.
If your bad breath persists, however, this could be a sign of a larger problem at hand.
Tonsil stones are another culprit of bad breath. Because our tonsils contain so many nooks and crannies, bacteria, mucus, and dead cells are more likely to get caught in these areas. If the symptom persists, white “stones” can form.
These stones contain sulfur compounds, which then cause your breath to smell. Sometimes, these stones can resolve on their own. Others need surgery, but if you’re daring, you can try a third solution: remove it yourself.
