Bad breath is an issue that can severely damage your confidence. Fortunately, there are several ways to address this issue. Watch this video for a few tips for tackling your bad breath.
Bad breath occurs when bacteria is allowed to exist in your mouth, specifically on the back of your tongue. This problem may be worsened by eating the wrong types of foods, like garlic and onions. The best way to combat bad breath is by practicing proper oral hygiene; this entails brushing your teeth twice per day and flossing each day in addition. You can also use sugarless gum or mints to improve your breath and stimulate the flow of saliva.

When gingivitis is left untreated for a long period of time it progresses into periodontitis; this can progress even further and cause a host of complications. Here are the different types of periodontitis.
Periodontitis involves the deterioration of bone and tissues that support your teeth as well as the separation of teeth from the gums, which can lead to tooth loss. However, there are several different types of this condition. Aggressive periodontitis describes this process occurring in a healthy individual. Chronic periodontitis is when the condition occurs over a long period of time with bursts of progression. Periodontitis may also occur as a byproduct of other severe diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory disease. This frequently occurs at younger ages. Necrotizing periodontal disease occurs when cells die in the alveolar bone, periodontal ligament, and gingival tissues.
