Bad Breath

Bad breath is a common problem and has several possible causes. Persistent bad breath is usually caused by the bacteria that coat your teeth. Smoking is also another main cause of bad breath, along with certain medical issues relating to the nasal and stomach areas.

Also an effective oral hygiene regimen at home will mean that less food and plaque will collect around the teeth and gums, which keep your breath smelling fresh and also reduce the risk of gum disease and dental decay.
