While there are internal medical conditions that can lead to chronic bad breath, more commonly, it is an oral health issue. An infection in the mouth can have a foul odor. An abscessed tooth or gum infection from periodontal disease are common ailments that can cause bad breath. Tooth decay is another source of bad breath that will not subside after you brush or gargle with mouthwash.
