Did you know that there may be many reasons why you have bad breath? Well, it’s true! Our team here at Next Level Dental in Smyrna, Tennessee, wants to help you with your bad breath, which is why we are happy to talk to you about the causes.

There are various causes of bad breath, which is also known as halitosis. Foods, drinks, and delicious spices all can create a smelly aroma in your mouth that can cause bad breath. Other causes of bad breath include a lack of brushing and flossing each day. This is because plaque and food particles can settle on the teeth causing bacteria to leak into your gums leading to gum disease.

Gum disease can cause persistent bad breath. This condition is serious and needs to be treated as soon as possible. Gum disease can cause many things such as tooth loss, gums to pull away from teeth, and even bone loss. That is why it is always best to visit your dentist, Dr. Coley Ramsey, so you can discover the true cause of your bad breath.
