Halitosis in Detroit, MI

Food and plaque can build up between teeth and if not cleaned properly can cause severe breath problems. Some people have chronic illnesses that can cause bad breath such as chronic sinus infections, acid reflux, and diabetes.

Some factors that might contribute to bad breath include:

  • Gum disease
  • Dry mouth
  • Medications
  • Tobacco products
  • A build-up of bacteria on your tongue
  • Food
  • Poor oral hygiene

However, halitosis can also be a symptom of a more severe problem like periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a build-up of disease-causing bacteria that can eat away your healthy tissue possibly resulting in tooth and bone loss. If you think you might have periodontal disease you should see Dr. Nemeth immediately.
