Effects of Diet on Halitosis

A patient’s diet is a prime contributor to the effects of halitosis. Certain foods can disrupt the flow of saliva leading to bad breath. Something as simple as eating a healthy breakfast each morning can aid tremendously to prevent bad breath, as bacteria and odor tend to build up as we sleep. Drinking water is crucial. Water is not only necessary to maintain your general health; it also prevents dehydration, a major cause of bad breath. Beverages such as cola and juices are highly concentrated with sugars and acid and will have the exact opposite effect, by encouraging the growth and colonization of odor causing bacteria.
