Bad breath or Halitosis is a very common dental problem that affects millions of people everyday.

It is one of the common reasons people seek dental care.

The primary cause of bad breath is poor oral hygiene. Bacteria from food debris that remain on or in between the teeth can become rotten and sulfur compounds are produced that cause a foul smell or odor.

Smoking can also contribute to bad breath. Tar and nicotine residues from cigarettes bind to the teeth, gums and sides of the cheeks.

In addition, braces can contribute to bad breath due to the increase in plaque accumulation.

  • Regular checkups to the dentist and cleanings to promote good oral hygiene
  • Daily flossing and use of pixsters
  • Brush your teeth and tongue 2-3 times per day for 2 minutes
  • Healthy Diet
  • Do not use tobacco products

Usually bad breathe is a symptom of a bigger underlying issue of tooth decay or gum disease.

If left untreated, a toothache or abscess can occur.
