We all know how embarrassing it can be to have bad breath. Generally, good dental hygiene habits are enough to combat the effects of strong smelling foods or tobacco use but sometimes your bad breath is caused by something more serious. Dr. Kim can help you determine if your bad breath is caused by an oral health issue – like improper or infrequent brushing, dry mouth, or gum disease–or if it is an indication of a larger health issue that might need to be addressed by a medical doctor.
If you are concerned about your breath, talk to us at your next appointment so we can discuss your treatment options. Don’t forget to check for sugar-free gum approved by the American Dental Association. It can help ease your fears about your breath after lunch!
