Bad breath can detract from your self-esteem and make you self-conscious about social situations. If you suffer from this condition, our dentist may be able to help. There are many reasons why a person may suffer from bad breath, also known as halitosis. Our practice provides many ways for patients to address these issues.
Halitosis can be caused by poor dental hygiene habits or may indicate a separate health problem. The following are possible causes for bad breath:
- Periodontal (gum) disease
- Dry mouth (xerostomia)
- Poor dental hygiene habits
- Smoking or chewing tobacco-based products
- Certain foods
- Yeast infections of the mouth
