Do you find that you are continuously worried about bad breath? Do you constantly take a step back when talking with others? Are you always reaching for a breath mint or just self-conscious in general? It is not uncommon to experience bad breath from time to time. This is especially common if you are a big coffee drinker or enjoy garlic in your food. When food or beverage is the cause of bad breath, the smell can be eliminated after a thorough teeth brushing. When you experience frequent bad breath, however, it can be worrisome because it is a warning sign something may be amiss with your oral health.
