Bad Breath May Indicate It Is Time to Visit the Periodontist
Every person experiences bad breath (also called halitosis) at some point in his or her life. Often, the bad breath is caused by eating or drinking a certain food or beverage. After brushing and oral rinses, the odor goes away.
However, for people who have bad breath even after brushing and flossing, there is usually something amiss. Dr. Alejandro Kovacs and Dr. Tom M. Smith treat patients with halitosis in Longview, TX because we understand that bad breath can be a sign that problems are occurring within the oral environment.Contact Us Today
