Q: How do I get rid of bad breath?

The good news is a stick of gum, some parsley or lemon juice can cure your temporary bad breath. The bad news is, there are several causes for bad breath. Luckily, we can help you find the source.

Bad breath can be caused by the foods you eat, your oral health habits, or by a deeper issue such as gum disease. Other diseases and illnesses which can cause bad breath include pneumonia, chronic sinus infections, postnasal drip, diabetes, chronic acid reflux, and liver or kidney problems.

Regular visits to our Winnipeg dentist office can often manage bad breath so our dentists can clean your teeth, monitor any contributing factors, and show you proper techniques for brushing and flossing. Visit us today at our St. Vital Centre or Garden City Shopping Centre locations to help you determine the cause, and we’ll be able to offer you the appropriate solution.
