You can dismiss bad breath when it can easily be traced back to the garlic bread you ate with last night’s dinner.

But if the foul odor in your mouth persists and can’t be masked by mouthwash, breath mints, or good daily hygiene, your halitosis could be a sign of something more harmful going on with your dental health

Check out this ADA video to understand more about the various causes of bad breath and what to do about it. If you’re struggling with less-than-fresh breath lately and think it might be a symptom of advancing gum disease, then be sure to visit Dr. Ross for a dental exam and effective treatment.
