Bad breath can weaken your relationship with people however good you are by behaviour or nature. Most of the times the person having bad breath may not even notice why the other person is neglecting him or her. It is a very severe problem for the people who are always in verbal contact with other people, who have to convince people for something like buying or are related to public relations. Even your girlfriend/boyfriend/husband/wife may neglect you if you are having this problem, however, love she may be having for you, and it may even affect your personal relationships to some extent. It is common in children, adult, men and women of all ages.
While we brush our teeth in the morning and at night, bad breath still remains because of the fact that it does not arise from the mouth but from the stomach.
Brushing just removes the food particles from teeth and cleans the mouth.
Mouthwash also just flushes our mouth with fresheners and the problem is solved just for few hours.
While the gases generated in the stomach is the main reason for bad breath. Sometimes habits like chewing tobacco, smoking, having alcohol, beetle leaves may also result in bad breath.
If you are under any medication for a long duration then this may also result in giving bad breath.
Neglecting to go for the toilet may also result in bad breath as gases tend to accumulate into the body.
