Although there are many causes for bad breath, good oral homecare and regular dental checkups can help to allow your breath to stay fresh.  However, if it doesn’t, it could be a stomach problem, or on rare occasions, a possible sign of diabetes, kidney, or liver disease.  When bad breath is caused by a digestive problem, it can actually compromise tooth health.  Gastric reflux can cause stomach acids to move into the mouth, which can cause various problems for teeth, such as tooth decay and weakened enamel.  Tooth decay is another cause of bad breath.  If you have any concerns regarding bad breath, Dr. Danielak is certainly here to help!
