Bad Teeth and Halitosis
Nothing is more objectionable than bad breath. Unfortunately, most people are completely unaware that they are offending in this respect. One common cause of trouble is bad teeth. Dental decay at the roots of the teeth may result in abscesses in the gums with foul-smelling pus giving an objectional odor to the breath.
Even small holes in the teeth may provide a place where germs can multiply and release foul odors. These are very common in younger people. Badly fitting dentures that have not been properly cleansed are a common cause of trouble, especially in older folk.
