Halitosis is bad breath, and it is considered a serious threat to your oral health. When you have a bad mouth odor, it could be a pointer for an underlying dental health condition such as cavities developing. You need to get your teeth checked by our dentist to determine why you have bad breath. This will be an important first step to improving your dental health.
Tooth Decay and Cavity
Tooth decay and cavities are mainly caused by adopting poor dental hygiene practices and eating sugary and acidic foods. The acid in your mouth erodes the enamel reaching the dentine, and this usually becomes the start of a challenging time because if left unchecked, you can lose your tooth. You should brush more often to prevent cavities from developing.
Missing teeth are another major oral health challenge. Missing teeth can be due to facial trauma, tooth extraction, or poor dental practices. With missing teeth, you will be unable to achieve a bright smile, and also, you're eating, chewing, and speaking will be affected.
Get Urgent Dental Care
If you have any of the above challenges, you can visit for immediate treatment. The faster you seek medical attention will be important in preventing further progression of the oral health challenge. Call to book an appointment and talk to a professional.
