Our dentists, Dr. Sefcik, Andrews and Andrews with Lighthouse Dental in Westminster, Colorado, are professionals and happy to talk to you about the familiar sources of bad breath.

Oral hygiene plays a significant role in your oral health. If you have bad breath constantly, remember your oral hygiene health habits. Many foods cause bad breath, also known as halitosis. As a result, remember the basics of brushing and flossing every day. However, if you still have bad breath, there are other likely reasons such as gum disease hiding in your smile. Other dental concerns can cause bad breath too, such as an abscessed tooth or severe cavities. That is why keeping up with your oral health is indispensable in your everyday life.

Other reasons of bad breath include tobacco in any form because it can leave a foul-smelling odor in your mouth from bacteria. Tobacco can leave smells the user may not even realize because they are adapted to it for so long. Digestive problems such as acid reflux disease can activate lousy breath because of the acids and bacteria in your tummy. Finding relief for any digestive problems may help overcome this condition.
