|You know, it’s very common to be told that you have bad breath, but it can be a real blow to your self-esteem. Now maybe it’s just because you had garlic bread for lunch, but there could be more serious causes to your bad breath. I’m dentist Dr. James Smith, and believe it or not, questions about bad breath are very common for dentists to hear. What people don’t know is that bad breath doesn’t always indicate that someone does not brush their teeth or that they have a penchant for garlicky foods.|
|In fact, there are many potentially serious causes behind bad breath.
Bad Breath is Embarrassing
Besides the possibility of serious problems, bad breath is just plain embarrassing. It is so awkward to have bad breath and to have to go into social situations. Many people don’t know this, but even a small amount of tooth decay can cause some serious breath issues. This is just another reason why visiting me, Dr. Smith for a checkup and cleaning is so very important.
Bad breath can actually be a blessing to some, in that the social stigma can force many people to finally make a dentist appointment. Don’t let it get bad before you visit a dentist; it is something that everyone should do to avoid potential problems.
One of the most common causes for bad breath is gingivitis. Commonly known as gum disease, gingivitis can be a very serious indicator of underlying health problems, so if you have bad breath it’s a good decision to visit my Trenton office.
