Do co-workers recoil when you talk to them? Before you blame your morning cup of coffee, your bad breath may be caused by an oral condition.
If you don't brush and floss regularly, particles of food remain in the mouth collecting bacteria, which cause bad breath. A professional cleaning will help.
You may suffer from chronic dry mouth. If increasing your fluid intake and chewing gum haven't helped, your dentist can prescribe artificial saliva.
Bad breath may also be pointing the way to more serious medical disorders. Your dentist can steer you in the right direction for a proper diagnosis.
Schedule an appointment with Dr. Wright at Pueblo West Dental Care.
Proper dental care is an important part of proper health care.
