Breathing into your hand and trying to sniff it is not a great test. You can’t feel it. The only way you can confirm it is by involving a 3rd party.
The causes of bad breath are many, from diet, to viral infections and diabetes, to kidney and liver diseases. But the single biggest cause of bad breath, is the colony of bacteria that reside in the mouth.
Here is where it can get complicated. If every mouth has a bacterial colony why do some mouths smell bad while others are fine?
If you think you have bad breath, or you know a loved one does, book in for a fresh breath consultation. The solution to your problem might be much easier than you think!
