A hint as to where bad breath comes from. Stinky dead bacteria hiding in your mouth, or maybe not your mouth but someone you know and maybe try to avoid. People ask me why should they brush. The answer is to remove the grungy film that attaches to the teeth. The sticky film is a home for millions of bacteria. Bacteria have a short life span and then the dead bacteria decompose in your mouth and stink to high heaven. Brush your teeth!
This blog is called bad breath and your tongue so what gives? Here is the answer, the tongue is a great hiding place for bacteria, especially towards the back of the tongue where the nasal passages meet the throat. As you breath the air from your lungs passes over your tongue and millions of smelly dead bacteria trapped in the tiny hairs on your tongue pollute the air as you talk to others and they think to themselves, ‘get me out of here’.
