25 . What causes bad breath and what can be done about it?
Bad breath, or halitosis, is primarily caused by poor oral hygiene, but can also can be caused by retained food particles, gum disease, drainage from sinus dripping or systemic, respiratory or gastrointestinal problems. Proper brushing including brushing the tongue, cheeks, and the roof of the mouth will remove bacteria and food particles. Flossing removes accumulated bacteria, plaque and food that may be trapped between teeth. Mouth rinses are effective in temporary relief of bad breath. Consult your dentist and/or physician if the condition persists.

Testimonials
"You definitely go above and beyond in the customer service dept.  I have never been treated this good in a dentist office."

- Cathy W.

"From childhood and the ugly experiences  I suffered, it was nearly impossible to get me to a dentist by free will.  Circumstances brought me to Dr. Lee Long and the experience has brought me around.  His compassion and expertise along with lack of judgmental posturing has made me not only a patient, but a fan also.  No pain, no problem."
