Dr. Spalitto refers to bad breath as halitosis. As you will learn in this video, bad
breath can signify an underlying dental problem.
Chronic bad breath is a common problem in family dentistry. While occasional
bad breath is no cause for concern, you should tell your dentist if your
bad breath lasts longer than a few hours. Halitosis may be caused by gum
disease or could signify a tooth abscess or infection. Cavities and gum
disease require immediate treatment for the best possible prognosis.
If you suffer from bad breath, seek treatment from dentist Dr. Spalitto
by calling West County Dental at (314) 821-2712.
