Halitosis is a health condition that stores bacteria in your mouth that could be causing your bad breath. There are a variety of triggers for halitosis, however the best way to fight it is to talk to Dr. Michaelsen and Dr. Bulleigh. Your doctors will be able to give you more information and determine if gum disease is the culprit of your bad breath. If not, there are other steps you can take to fight it.
Brushing each and every day for twice a day, while flossing every night are key factors in fighting bad breath. Using a healthy mouthwash to fight the rest of the bacteria can also be effective at clearing your mouth of bad breath.
