Treatment of bad odor

Bad breath, also called halitosis, can be an embarrassing problem. It can be caused by the foods you eat, dry mouth, tobacco products, or a medical disorder or conditions such as diabetes, GERD, lactose intolerance, gum disease. Dentures or dental appliances, such as braces, can contribute to bad breath. Most often it is due to food particles that are not properly cleansed from the appliances. Common symptoms of bad breath include bad breath smell, bad taste or taste changes, dry mouth, and coating on the tongue. The dentist can determine if your problem is due to lack of oral hygiene and provide a treatment plan. Maintaining proper oral health can help reduce or eliminate bad breath. “
