The Truth About Bad Breath
The truth is that chronic bad breath isn't going to be cured by a roll of mints or a swig of mouthwash. To cure bad breath, you'll need to find out what's causing the problem. Poor dental hygiene or a related dental problem is the root of many cases of bad breath. Often, brushing throughly at least twice a day and flossing regularly can remove the responsible bacteria.
Sometimes, however, the problem is more complicated. Bad breath and a bad taste in your mouth can be signs of gum disease or tooth decay. If you feel you're doing a good job brushing and flossing but bad breath persists, a professional dental diagnosis should be sought.
Some illnesses can manifest themselves in bad breath. Chronic problems like postnasal drip and sinusitis, or serious ailments such as diabetes or liver or kidney dysfunction, can turn your breath sour despite good oral hygiene. Persistent bad breath shouldn't be ignored. Make an appointment with us so we can find the cause fo the problem.More Information
