A: Bad breath is often due to lack of oral hygiene. In some cases, it may be an indication of some underlying health issue. Consulting a dentist for bad breath is the most logical step.

Q: How many sittings does a dentist take for Root canal treatment?
A: Root canal treatment is a dental procedure followed for advanced decay of tooth that cannot be repaired by filling.
