What's Causing My Bad Breath?

Have you noticed that your breath smells less than rosy? If so, then you’re probably wondering what’s behind this smelly problem. Watch this video to learn what your dentist in Belmont would want you to know about bad breath.

Occasional bad breath, or halitosis, is not uncommon. This condition is caused by oral microflora, which is made up of hundreds of types of bacteria that are found naturally in your mouth. Each time you eat, these bacteria feed on food particles and then secrete waste in the form of volatile sulfur compounds. It’s usually these compounds that cause halitosis. To help address bad breath, dentists recommend that you brush your teeth and the back of your tongue twice per day.
