Reasons for Bad Breath

edited March 28 in General Topics

Bad breath is primarily caused by poor oral hygiene – that is, not flossing daily and brushing at least twice per day. It can also be caused by underlying conditions, such as gum disease and even diabetes can also be caused, malnutrition, or cancer to name a few. Many people are shocked that they have bad breath the reason is they brush after every meal. One can get rid of that after getting good dental cleaning services from the dentist.
