Bad breathe causes

What Causes Bad Breath?

Don't worry. We've all winced at the scent of our own bad breath at one time or another. But where does bad breath come from? Many things in our day-to-day lives can cause it. Eating, drinking, oral hygiene, medical issues, and sleep habits can all lead to odor-causing bacteria in your mouth.

Getting Rid of Bad Breath

Most typical remedies - mints, gum, and even many toothpastes - simply mask bad breath by covering it up with a strong, minty odor. Instead, use Aquafresh® Extreme Clean® Pure Breath Action with a special mineral formula that helps to neutralize bad odors for 80% cleaner, purer breath.*

Better Breath Tips

Bye bye, bacteria. The most effective way to get rid of bad breath is to reduce the number of odor-causing bacteria in your mouth. Here are some tips that will help:

  • Brush regularly (even more than twice a day if necessary) for at least 2 minutes each time with a germ-killing toothpaste like Aquafresh® Extreme Clean® Pure Breath Action.
  • Floss carefully every day to remove food debris caught between teeth.
  • Use a mouthwash.

*vs. non-zinc toothpaste immediately after brushing.
