What is halitosis?


Halitosis is chronic bad breath. Things like "morning breath" are only for a short time, while halitosis is longer lasting and could indicate underlying symptoms of something worse. Some causes for halitosis are:

• Cavities and deep pockets (both can harbor bacteria)

• Dry mouth

• Mouth, nose, throat infections

• Smoking and tobacco

• Chronic conditions, such as gastric reflux, diabetes, kidney disease, etc. Remember to brush twice a day and floss at least once a day, as well as rinse with mouthwash once a day! Talk to your dentist if bad breath still persists.
