Why do I have bad breath even though I brush frequently?
Bad breath, known as halitosis can be a distressing problem to live with. Bad breath can affect not only your dental health but your confidence and social life too. Mints, mouthwash, and gum can help to mask the problem, but will not cure it. You need to consult with your dentist to get to the root of the problem.
In most cases, careful management through professional cleaning appointments to remove plaque and tartar build up and, instituting a new oral health regime can help tremendously. We encourage patients to come in and talk to us. There is no need to be embarrassed. This is what we are here for; to help restore healthy happy smiles.
