BAD BREATH

I have very bad breath. Always.... I brush my teeth regularly and eat mints, but it doesn't seem to help. This is starting to become a problem for me

Bad breath is often related to a build up of plaque and calculus on teeth. This is often associated with sore and bleeding gums.A professional cleaning may be required to remove all these deposits. Also, ask your dentist to show you how to brush correctly and have regular cleanings to prevent the problem in the future.
