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.
