Bad breath can be caused by any number of factors. Certainly things such as smoking and alcohol consumption can lead to bad breath. So too can certain foods and beverages. But these causes of bad breath are easily treatable by brushing and flossing your teeth.
When your bad breath is an indication of an oral or systemic health issue, you will require professional treatment to eliminate it. Things such as gum disease, excess amounts of plaque, tooth infections, or tooth decay can all cause chronic bad breath. Burke dentist Dr. Pamela Marzban can identify these problems and provide you with the most effective solutions.
Treating Bad Breath

The exact treatment you require will be dependent on the cause of your bad breath. Dr. Marzban will work closely with you to determine what will best treat your bad breath and help ensure it does not come back.
