I brush my teeth everyday. Why do I still have bad breath?

Bad breath can often be attributed to incorrect brushing, as well as the lack of a good flossing habit. Brushing without flossing only cleans about half of your teeth's surface, leaving bacteria and food debris that can turn into a source of bad breath. Gum disease and gingivitis are also known to be causes, and special treatment is often needed to eliminate their impact.

Dr. McCann can evaluate your dental health and determine any source of dental infection that may be causing your bad breath. If dental issues are ruled out, you may be in need of a medical evaluation, as certain problems can lead to halitosis (i.e. diabetes). Certain medications may also cause bad breath.
