The worst dental problems are those that affect us without us realizing. Nighttime teeth grinding, hidden cavities, painless gingivitis, and bad breath are all concerns that you might not be aware are taking hold in your mouth. But with a little reflection, you can figure out at least one of these issues on your own. Bad breath might not seem like a serious problem, but it can have a significant impact on your life. From the way others work with you, to the time they choose to spend around you, your own confidence level, you’re stronger when your breath is smelling fresh.

The first step? Checking out our infographic below. This will help you decide whether your breath is smelling the way it should, and what to do next. If you’d like to talk to a professional, just get in touch with our office to learn more about your options. If the measures below start helping your breath, it’s likely that the cause wasn’t something serious. But if you’re not seeing improvements within a few weeks, make sure to set up an appointment.
