Since it’s National Fresh Breath Day, how about a quick breath check?

If you smell the lingering odor of last night’s garlic bread, it’s nothing that a little brushing, rinsing, or gum chewing can’t mask.

But if there’s a foul smell coming from your mouth that you can’t explain away with eating, brushing, or flossing habits over the last couple of days, the cause could be something more serious.

Gum disease infection leaves a nasty taste and smell in your mouth, so you shouldn’t ignore bad breath that persists despite your best efforts to freshen it up. So visit us soon to get to the underlying issue so we can act fast to freshen your breath and protect your health.
