The Dreadful Myths About Halitosis

Posted by Cascade admin on Nov 29 2019, 09:47 PM

Halitosis (also known as bad breath) is a problem that affects everyone from time to time. Despite the common beliefs about it, halitosis is not always caused by poor oral hygiene. If you suffer from this problem, you should not feel discouraged about it since there is a solution. The cure for bad breath is simple; however, a lot of resources about halitosis overcomplicates the said condition.

Due to this reason, Cascade Family Dental has identified some of the myths about halitosis. Read on to know what these misconceptions are and save yourself from unnecessary frustration.

  • Treatment for bad breath requires expensive products

While it is true that some commercial products can cure bad breath, they are costly and are needed to be used repeatedly. These products, although effective, are not necessarily required. Generally, bad breath is caused by bacteria living underneath your tongue; thus, you must use products containing ingredients that can kill bacteria. These components are not only found in commercial products but home remedies, as well.

  • Bad breath has no cure and can only be masked

Masking your bad breath is a big no! Mints and sprays can worsen your problem since they may contain ingredients that create an ideal environment for bacteria to thrive in your mouth. The perfect thing to do to cure bad breath is to eliminate the nasty bacteria that emit foul odors. If you feel helpless and discouraged about bad breath, talk to us here at Cascade Family Dental, and we will provide a solution for you.

  • Bad breath originates from the stomach

Did you know that years ago, there was a hype about pills that claimed to cure bad breath in your stomach? Fortunately, this has been debunked, and the US Food and Drug Administration put an end to these pills. Bad breath does not originate from the stomach; it comes from the naturally existing bacteria within your mouth.
