What causes bad breath?

Unpleasant breath odor can indicate the presence of dental caries or tooth decay. Tooth decay is caused by the presence of acid eating into the enamel that serves as the protective outer covering of the teeth. The human mouth is home to bacteria that accumulate with the saliva, food debris and other substances.

These microorganisms and other matter now form a film on the surface of the teeth that is called plaque. Plaque easily forms in the cracks or fissures in the back of the teeth as well as between teeth or around dental fillings, attacking and weakening the enamel until tooth decay sets in.
