Nevertheless, there are still other factors that contribute to bad breath. For instance, dry mouth is a prime offender. Saliva has enzymes that allow it to act as a natural mouthwash. Dry mouth creates an environment in your mouth that can allow bad breath causing bacteria to grow. Therefore, individuals who tends to have dry mouth condition may often found themselves a victim of halitosis, or bad breath. One of the most simple yet effective prevention for dry mouth is to avoid frequent consumption of alcohol, or breathing through your mouth as both habits can cause and exacerbate dry mouth, which then increase the likelihood of halitosis.
