Bad breath can often be ruled out pretty easily.

But when it can’t be explained away by something you ate or forgetting to brush your teeth once in a while, it could be a sign that something more serious is going on with your dental health.

Today’s American Dental Association video highlights the most common causes, and if you need a more lasting solution, it’s time to visit your friends at Summit Dental to find out if oral infection may be the source.

Advancing gum disease can leave a bad taste in your mouth, and in the spirit of National Fresh Breath Day on August 6, we invite you to come see us for a dental checkup so we can act fast to stop gum infection in its tracks.
