Have you considered the source of your bad breath? Our dentist, Dr. Stuart Drange with Carson Valley Dental Arts in Gardnerville, Nevada, understands that persistent bad breath can have a number of causes and is happy to help you find the source of yours.

Oral hygiene plays a pivotal role to improve your oral health. If you have stubborn bad breath, recall your oral hygiene routine. Most of us understand many foods cause bad breath, so remember the basics of brushing and flossing daily. However, if you still have bad breath after your brushing and flossing routine, there are other reasons such as gum disease to consider. Many dental issues can cause bad breath as well such as an abscessed tooth or cavities. As a result, keeping up with your oral health care is vital in your everyday life.

Bad breath has other causes that include tobacco use because of the foul-smelling odors in your mouth from bacteria and chemicals it has. Tobacco can leave smells the user may not even know about because they are accustomed to it for years. Digestive problems such as acid reflux disease can also cause bad breath because of the acids and bacteria in your stomach. That is why finding relief for digestive problems may help fight this condition.
