Got bad breath? Did you know persistent bad breath could be caused by more than just inconsistent oral hygiene care?
Often times, people believe that bad breath is solely caused by poor oral hygiene or neglecting regular dental visits. Although gum disease and poor oral hygiene is one of the leading causes, there are several other conditions that contribute to chronic bad breath.
If you suffer from chronic bad breath, it is important not to jump to any conclusions about your health. Improving your oral hygiene regime to include brushing and flossing after meals, as well as drinking more water throughout the day, may be the first steps to solving your bad breath blues. If after a few weeks your problem hasn’t cleared up, then seeking the help of your local dentist or general physician may be warranted.
