It’s National Fresh Breath Day!

That means your Aberdeen dentist wants to make sure you understand the difference between temporary bad breath and potentially harmful halitosis.

Everyone knows that eating certain pungent foods like garlic and onions can leave a foul odor in your mouth for a short time. But if you can rule your diet out and still can’t get rid of the smell, it could be a sign of gum disease, the most serious dental problem you could face.

Take a look at today’s video from the American Dental Association to learn about the most common causes and solutions for bad breath.

And if you think your halitosis is more serious than what you had for dinner last night, be sure to visit us routinely for dental cleanings and exams. We’ll look for gum disease and other issues that might be causing it.
