Why most toothpastes can make your bad breath worse

Most toothpastes will make your mouth dry because they contain sodium lauryl sulfate or a harsh detergent and foaming agent. Check your toothpaste you currently use for yourself and see. When your mouth is dryer, you have less saliva. Saliva naturally contains Oxygen, which keeps your mouth healthy and fresh. The bacteria are anaerobic, which simply means that they will thrive and make more sulfur in the presence of little or no oxygen. Thus if you have less saliva, you have less oxygen, thereby creating an anaerobic environment, perfect for the bacteria to produce more of the odorous and sour/bitter compounds.
