Several factors can cause bad breath, which is more formally known as halitosis. Based on the cause of your bad breath, our prosthodontists can help you find a solution.

Because several types of illnesses and medical conditions may result in bad breath, it is important to check with your physician and our team to find out whether an illness or medication is causing bad breath. If you are healthy and suffer from bad breath, it may be caused by microbial deposits on the tongue. Simply brushing your tongue can reduce bad breath by as much as 70%. Another important way to prevent bad breath is to practice good oral hygiene. Be sure to brush at least twice a day and floss at least once a day. Be certain to visit us on a regular basis to make sure any conditions like tooth decay and periodontal disease are treated. Avoiding odorous foods like garlic and onions can help to keep your breath fresh, and quitting smoking or chewing tobacco can improve your breath as well.
