Crime scene oral cavity
In 90 percent of all cases, the causes of bad breath lie in the oral cavity, where bacteria multiply well in a warm, humid climate. You feel good in gum pockets, between teeth and in the back of the tongue. There they feed on the remains of protein-rich and sugary foods such as meat, fish, eggs, dairy products or chocolate and release foul-smelling sulfur compounds in the process. Poor oral hygiene, inflammation of the gums, periodontal disease or tooth damage can also cause foul breath.
