Full Abstract: There are several types of halitosis, but the temporary and most common type is called, physiologic halitosis. Bacteria in the mouth cause foul breath when saliva secretion is low, as during sleep. Playing wind instruments naturally retards physiologic halitosis as playing itself stimulates salivary production. Common causes include: garlic, alcohol, tobacco and stomach medicine. Treatment includes rinsing the mouth with water, brushing, flossing and gargling. There are several types of halitosis, but the temporary and most common type is called, physiologic halitosis.
