Food Particles Left in Your Mouth

Bad breath can be caused by the food particles that remain in your mouth after eating. If you fail to brush your teeth, the food particles can be broken down by bacteria, with the resultant by-products being acids which can produce a foul odor.

Tooth Decay and Cavity
