Persistent halitosis is not just embarrassing, it could be an indicator of a more serious health issue. The primary causes of bad breath are poor oral hygiene and gum disease. Approximately 90% of halitosis originates from oral bacteria and 10% from systemic diseases.
When plaque collects under the gums, the bacteria in it release foul-smelling sulfur compounds. These bacteria irritate and eventually destroy the gum tissue and supporting structures.
