Do you know why you have bad breath problems? If not, that’s ok! Because we can help you find the cause and reasons for your halitosis, which is also known as bad breath. Here at Columbia Dental Excellence in Columbia, Maryland, we take your oral health seriously, which is why we have provided you some common causes of bad breath.

Halitosis, which is also known as persistent bad breath, is a condition that causes your breath to stink. When it comes to treating your bad breath, the first step is to always talk to your dentist Dr. Avi Mizrachi about your cause and treatment options. There are several diverse causes. For example, a lack of a dental hygiene routine is usually the main reason bad breath lingers. That is another reason why brushing and flossing each day is essential to your oral health. Other triggers of halitosis include a warning sign of gum disease, dry mouth, smoking or any tobacco use, foods, and some drinks can also cause bad breath.

Luckily, halitosis can be treated if you are dedicated to treating your smile right. If you keep a healthy oral hygiene routine, then you can help fight off this smelly condition. With your dental checkups every six months, you can also keep serious conditions like gum disease from advancing into more serious stages.
