Smoking and bad breath
There are several reasons for so called ‘Smoker’s breath’.
- Tar and nicotine build up on the surface of the mouth, teeth, tongue, cheeks
- Smoking dries the mouth, as it reduces the release of saliva, which makes the growth of bacteria that cause bad breath easier.
- Smoking may worsen the inflammation of the gums and aggravate the condition of the sinus (nasal obstruction) which also leads to bad breath.
