Halitosis, or bad breath, is a condition that causes your breath to smell. When it comes to treating halitosis, the first step to take is to always talk to your dentist Dr. Jon Molinare about your cause and treatment options. There are several different causes that can trigger halitosis. For example, poor dental hygiene is usually the main reason bad breath happens. That is another reason why brushing and flossing each day is pivotal to your oral health. Other triggers can also include a warning sign of gum disease, dry mouth, smoking or any tobacco use, foods, and some drinks can also cause bad breath.
