Answer: It depends on what the source of the bad breath is. This
question is like asking, my car won't drive, what do I do to fix it?
Obviously it needs to be examined to see what it could and could
not be. The most frequent causes of bad breath are:
1. Halitosis of the tongue
2. Periodontal(Gum) Disease
3. Tooth Decay
4. Dry Mouth
5. Chronic Usage of Alcohol Based Rinses/Mouthwashes
7. Oral Hygiene
8. Medical history (e.g. Diabetics)
9. Chronic Sinusitis (Heavy Congestion from Sinuses)
While this list is not all inclusive, this represents some of the major
causes of bad breath. While all can contribute to unpleasant odor in
the oral cavity, treatment will vary on this based on the source of the
problem. Talk to Dr.Glasmeier about the cause of your bad breath
and how it may be corrected!
