Did you know, food is not the only thing that can give you bad breath? If you have persistent bad breath, this could be a condition called halitosis. Persistent bad breath could also be a warning sign of a very serious problem, which is why it is important to talk to your doctor, Dr. Gerald Spoto, so you can get treatment.

There are numerous things that cause halitosis, such as cavities, dry mouth, foods, tobacco, alcohol, bacteria, and even gum disease. These conditions need to be addressed and treated, so you can have your healthy breath, fully restored. If you strive to brush your teeth twice a day and floss each day, this will help fight off bad breath, as well as an effective mouthwash can. Tongue scrapers can also be a successful tool when it comes to clearing bacteria from your mouth.
