Does Bad Breath Mean You have Gum Disease?

Halitosis is chronic bad breath, usually caused by poor oral hygiene. If you don’t brush your teeth regularly, never floss and don’t use mouthwash, you may need to change your habits. Bad breath can be embarrassing, but it can also be managed. Don’t let bad halitosis get in the way of your social interactions.gum disease

Bad breath can be caused by something you ate such as onions or garlic. It can also be a sign of serious diseases such as tuberculosis, liver disease, stomach problems, cancer, lung infections, kidney failures and more. If you use good oral hygiene and still find you struggle with bad breath, it may be time to talk to your doctor.

You may just need to brush your teeth more often, after every meal. Floss at least once a day and carry flossing picks around with you to clean out your teeth after meals on the go. Mouthwash is a really good idea if you are experiencing bad breath. Choose a wintergreen or peppermint flavor for best results.
