Bad Breath/Halitosis

EVERYONE is scared that their breath smells bad! Almost nothing is as embarrassing in social situations, in fact, it’s the 3rd most common reason people visit the dentist! (1st is decay, 2nd is gum disease.) The good news is that Kansas City Smiles &Co can help you control bad breath FOR GOOD! Do you commonly find yourself asking, “I wonder if my breath is bad?” or “Why does my mouth taste so bad in the morning?” This is very common, and the answer is pretty simple.

Of course, this can be caused by something you ate, like garlic or onions. This is usually temporary due to your last meal. We are discussing more of a chronic problem, where it seems like no matter what you do you still have bad breath.

Did you know, in almost all cases, bacteria is the cause? 90% of chronic bad breath cases originate from the mouth, but there are other syndromes and illnesses that can contribute to bad breath, like those involving the digestive tract.
