Higher Oral Bacteria Population May Cause Bad Breath

Unhealthy patterns of bacteria established in the mouth (not poor oral hygiene) may be cause of bad breath.  Reasearchers found that one group had noticeably lower levels of sulfur compounds but higher levels of bacterial levels.  The results of this investigation clearly demonstrate that oral malodor is a symptom based on the characteristic occupation of indigenous oral bacterial populations, rather solely on bacterial overgrowth due to poor oral hygiene.
