Bad breath is usually caused by poor oral hygiene habits, infections that occur in the mouth, unhealthy habits, such as smoking and alcohol intake, and foods that you eat. Other reasons for halitosis include dry mouth, respiratory tract infections and diseases such as diabetes, kidney failure, liver malfunction, lung cancer and gastrointestinal issues, which may include acid reflux and other stomach digestion problems. This type of poor oral hygiene is caused by the dental plaque, food debris and development of gingivitis in your mouth.

Taste problems from dental or oral causes can be frustrating. Could gum disease cause taste and odor problems? Gum disease creates an active infection in the mouth and can alter the taste of your food and the odors produced by your mouth. If you have experienced a desensitized palate or have noticed a metallic taste in the mouth, periodontal disease may be one of the root cause. This is also true of noticeably bad breath. The solution for odor may be the treatment of periodontal disease. The bacteria that cause gum disease creates an active infection, produce a sulfur-like smell, and deepen the periodontal pockets, allowing food to become trapped between the teeth and gums.
If you are embarrassed by your taste problems and bad breath (halitosis) and would like to discuss bad breath treatment options, visit our Board Certified Periodontist. A simple evaluation of your mouth and medical history may determine the cause of your bad breath. The solution may be a small alteration of medicine, nutrition, or periodontal treatment. If dental treatment is necessary, an outlined plan with detailed cost will be provided for you during your FREE Consultation appointment.
