It could be a warning signal for disease
Persistent bad breath can have many causes, including tobacco, food, medication, poor oral hygiene, and disease…including gum disease. Left untreated, gum disease can cause bone and tooth loss, and put your overall health at risk for cancer, heart disease, stroke, and more.
The good news is that gum disease and bad breath are most often preventable, treatable, and sometimes even reversible. A simple regimen of brushing after meals, flossing daily, and having regular professional cleanings can fight odor and disease. Call our office for a checkup and a cleaning!
