Bad breath can be embarrassing but is usually easily treated. What about a bad taste in the mouth? More likely than not, maintaining a good dental regime will usually clear the problem. But when the problem persists, it could be time to consult a dentist or even a doctor.
If the bad taste cannot be removed by brushing, flossing, and rinsing the teeth, there could be a more serious underlying cause such as:
– A dental cavity that’s gone untreated
– Eating too much sugary food
– Drinking too little water
However, these are extremely rare situations and “regular dental cleanings and screenings” will generally avoid any problems. A detailed article on the causes of bad tastes in the mouth can be read at http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/321438.php.
