We have helped thousands of patients battling with bad breath. We work very closely with our patients and we provide a series of exams to determine what’s causing the symptoms. The most common factors that contribute to halitosis include the following:
- Dry mouth or xerostomia
- Other dental illnesses
- Poor dental hygiene habits
- Periodontal disease
- Severe decay
- Certain diet plans
- Eating foods with strong odors like garlic and onion
- Bacterial growth
Regular brushing and flossing can eliminate bad breath. It’s also important that you brush your tongue to remove traces of bacteria that’s causing halitosis. However, if your mouth still smells despite brushing and flossing your teeth daily you may need to see a dentist to identify the source of your halitosis.
