25 . What causes bad breath and what can be done about it?
Bad breath, or halitosis, is primarily caused by poor oral hygiene, but can also can be caused by retained food particles, gum disease, drainage from sinus dripping or systemic, respiratory or gastrointestinal problems. Proper brushing including brushing the tongue, cheeks, and the roof of the mouth will remove bacteria and food particles. Flossing removes accumulated bacteria, plaque and food that may be trapped between teeth. Mouth rinses are effective in temporary relief of bad breath. Consult your dentist and/or physician if the condition persists.

"“We love our dentist! My family started coming to Wall Family Dentistry recently when our previous dentist retired. We are thrilled to have found such a great place. No long waits, easy to schedule appointments, friendly and well-educated staff, clean office, aware of insurance coverage issues, but most importantly excellent up-to-date dental care. We couldn’t be happier (that includes a 4 and 7 year old). Thank you Dr. Wall."-- Audrey
