Culver City Dentist "How can I fix my bad breath?"
Q: How can I fix my bad breath?
A: Bad breath or halitosis can be due to a variety of causes. The most common causes are tooth decay (cavities), gum disease (periodontal disease), plaque and calculus accumulation due to inadequate oral hygiene, smoking or use of other tobacco products, and eating odor-causing foods like garlic or onions. Long-term mouth dryness and respiratory infections are other possible sources of bad breath. Some medical disorders and medications can also cause halitosis. It is important to visit a dentist to determine the cause of this upsetting condition and treat it accordingly.
