Finding out you have bad breath can be embarrassing, especially in social or professional situations. While everyone may have an occasional bout of bad breath, chronic halitosis can be a sign of more serious health issues. When breath odor does not go away after brushing your teeth or using mouthwash, you may have halitosis and need to seek general dental treatment. Rolling Hills Dentistry offers halitosis treatment to find the source and treat the cause of chronic bad breath.
Halitosis is often caused by an oral health condition. There are many infections and decay issues in the mouth that can lead to foul odor; this odor does not go away, even after brushing your teeth or using mouthwash. A badly decayed tooth, infected gums or an abscessed tooth can all create foul breath that cannot be masked by mouthwash, gum and other minty options.
