Halitosis, or bad breath, can be an embarrassing problem that affects a large number of people each day. Often, bad breath can be easily corrected with proper oral hygiene habits such as effectively brushing and flossing your teeth. Sometimes, bad breath may not go away, and this can be a sign of a more serious dental or health problem. Bad breath can be a symptom of tobacco use, poor diet, dry mouth, or infections in your mouth.
If you have chronic bad breath in Sacramento, California, we recommend that you visit our experienced dentist for a diagnosis today. It is important that you consult the dentist if you have bad breath that persists, as it could be a sign of a serious health issue such as reflux or cancer.
