Is Your Bad Breath Trying To Tell You Something?

Bad-Breath

Whether professionally, personally or selfishly, bad breath isn’t a good look. For most of us, the stench usually stems from bacteria growing on our tongues, gums and in between teeth due to particles of food left behind. Not a lovely picture, we know. Of course, there are other factors that can cause a stinky mouth, like smoking and the types of food you eat.

But there are also very serious causes of bad breath, such as diabetes, sinus infections and even some cancers.

If you brush and floss daily and have a good mouthwash on hand and the odor doesn’t improve, it’s time to call in the professionals to make sure something more serious isn’t going on. Oral health is overall health, and your mouth may be telling you more about your body than you realize!
