  Question :
  What causes bad breath?
 Answer :
 There are many possible causes for a person to have bad breath.  Some of these include dry mouth (xerostomia), tobacco use, acid reflux, and food particles left from infrequent brushing and flossing.  Bad breath may be a sign of certain medical disorders.  Mouthwashes are generally cosmetic and do not have a long lasting effect.  Maintaining good oral health is essential to reducing bad breath.  Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque.  It is important to brush your tongue, too.  Once a day, use floss or an interdental cleaner to clean between teeth.
