Causes of Bad Breath(Halitosis) and how we treat it at our Worcester, MA dental clinic.

It is very embarrassing to walk around with bad smell, not only for yourself but, it is annoying for the people around you.
Poor oral hygiene is the most common cause for bad breath also known as Halitosis.
Watch what you eat. Certain foods like onion, garlic, some spicy food can give unpleasant smell from your mouth.
Watch what you drink. Alcohol is one of the main source of bad breath from the mouth. Drink lots of water.
Do not skip breakfast. When you eat, it produces saliva, which helps to keep mouth, esophagus and digestive system clean.
Avoid smoking and chewing tobacco products. 
Make sure to brush and floss your teeth every day.
Use tongue scrapper to clean your tongue.
Untreated gum disease and cavities will also give foul odor from your mouth. Visit your dentist every 4 to 6 months for professional cleaning and cancer screening.
