Bad Breath Might be a Symptom of Periodontal Disease

Everyone experiences halitosis (bad breath) at some point in their life. It can be from smelly foods, dry mouth or morning breath. However, if you are experiencing chronic halitosis, there may be a more serious condition at fault—periodontal disease. This is a caused by gum disease and tooth decay where bacteria thrives in spaces between the gums and in cavities. These bacteria cause recurring bad breath even after brushing or using mouthwash. Dr. Howard Abrahams understands that this can be embarrassing situation and offers halitosis treatment.

What is Causing Your Bad Breath?

Food particles

Viruses, illness and infection when they involve the sinuses, nasal passageway and throat can all cause bad breath. This should clear up once the sickness has run its course.

Periodontal disease
