Why do I have bad breath?

Bad breath can have several causes. By far, the most common causes relate to dental problems, primarily gum disease and tooth decay.

Occasionally, a medical consultation is necessary to rule out sinus or digestive disorder. We do see some few people who have bad breath for none of these reasons. In those cases, it's the type of bacteria that normally reside in their mouth that is producing the odor. For those patients, there are special mouth rinses that are made to neutralize the compounds that you smell.

For normal prevention of bad breath, we recommend regular dental checkups and effective cleaning of teeth, dentures or bridgework.
