What Causes Bad Breath?
Bad breath (halitosis) is caused by odor-producing bacteria that grow in the mouth. When you don't brush and floss regularly, bacteria accumulate on the bits of food left in your mouth and between your teeth. The sulfur compounds released by these bacteria make your breath smell. Certain foods, especially ones like garlic and onions that contain pungent oils, can contribute to bad breath because the oils are carried to your lungs and out through your mouth. Smoking is also a major cause of bad breath. If you brush and floss properly and visit your dentist for regular cleanings, but your bad breath persists, you may have a more serious dental or medical disease. Make an appointment with our office to evaluate the cause.

Why doesn't my insurance cover more?

The benefits you receive are based on the terms of the contract that were negotiated between your employer and the dental insurance company. The goal of most dental benefit plans is to provide only basic care for specific dental services. Some services you need or want may not be covered by your dental benefit plan. Companies will also use a downgrade rule, paying an alternate benefit of amalgam (silver filling) fees instead of composite (tooth colored) filling fees and sometimes on other treatment. Our office only offers tooth colored fillings. Our goal is to help you achieve and maintain optimal dental care. We do not compromise your care based on the limitations of your insurance company.
