Curious About Bad Breath? Ted-Ed Talks Bad Breath!
Have you ever been curious as how bad breath forms? Well, recently a Ted-Ed talk reviewed the phenomena of bad breath, scientifically referred to as Halitosis. On April 2nd, The Huffington Post reported that a TED-Ed video narrated by professor Mel Rosenberg explains the causes and origins of Halitosis, which, the Huffington Post reported, “all comes down to the activity of bacteria in the mouth.” The video points out that habits, such as smoking or drinking alcohol heavily can also cause distinct odors on the oral cavity, but that bacteria build-up in the gums between the teeth and on the back of the tongue are the primary cause of halitosis.
Proper oral hygiene and a healthy diet can help keep halitosis at bay, and “the American Dental Association recommends brushing twice per day, flossing and making regular trips to your dentist.” Richards Frankel Dentistry is happy to answer any questions you may have about bad breath, and can review possible reasons it may be affecting you, and how to help keep it at bay.
