When the teeth and gums are in good condition it is unlikely that bad breath will be a problem. However, certain foods can cause this embarrassing condition. Prime culprits in causing bad breath to be avoided before any social gathering include:
– Strongly flavoured snacks
The enzymes and compounds in these, and similar, foods are absorbed into the bloodstream and travel to the lungs “where you breathe them out” with the accompanying odours.
Persistent bad breath should be investigated by a dentist as it may be due to gum disease. Other possible causes of bad breath are outlined in the article at https://www.modernghana.com/news/895255/bad-breath-and-what-to-do.html
