Bad Breath

If you suffer from bad breath, you are not alone.

Bad breath, also called halitosis, can be embarrassing. According to dental studies, about 85% of people with persistent bad breath have a dental condition that is to blame.

Gum disease, cavities, oral cancer, dry mouth, and bacteria on the tongue are some of the dental problems that can cause bad breath.

Using mouthwash to cover up bad breath when a dental problem is present will only mask the odor and not cure it.

If you suffer from chronic bad breath, visit our office to rule out any of these problems and get on the right track to good oral health.
