Causes and treatment

Principal agents of bad breath are volatile sulfur compounds, which are produced by bacteria breaking down protein. Dispensed protein is usually washed away with saliva, but some conditions described below increase the amount of protein and result in bad breath.

Gingivitis and other periodontal diseases

When tartar and plaque that cause gingivitis accumulate, gum inflammation occurs, which releases bacteria, and blood or pus containing protein. A common treatment involves first removing the tartar and plaque to reduce the gum inflammation. Perfect Perio electrolyzed hypochlorite water kills bacteria and maximizes the treatment results.
