Fresh Ways To Handle Halitosis

What dentists call halitosis is simply bad breath. Do you suffer from this embarrassment and don’t know how to handle it? Use these helpful tips to treat and beat bad breath.

What To Blame for Bad Breath

Family dentistry experts warn that improper oral hygiene is often the root of halitosis. Maybe you’ve slacked on regular oral hygiene, have developed dental decay, or just have unhealthy habits. The result of all these actions is ongoing bad breath. To help you uncover the reason for your problem, read the main causes of halitosis:

  • Poor brushing and flossing, which leaves food particles in the mouth that breed bacteria
  • Not visiting an affordable dentist for check-ups and cleanings on a regular basis
  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Oral yeast infections
  • Smoking

Best Ways To Beat Bad Breath

For many people, halitosis can be completely reversed with better oral hygiene. That’s because oral bacteria is often to blame, which results from poor dental habits. If you don’t deal with the cause of your halitosis, it can lead to larger problems that require great cost and many visits to your family dentistry clinic. To say goodbye to bad breath for good, follow these proven tips:

  • Brush at least twice a day, or more as recommended.
  • Floss every day.
  • Brush your tongue to remove built-up bacteria.
  • See an affordable dentist twice a year for check-ups and cleanings.
  • Rinse with an anti-bacterial mouthwash after eating odor-inducing foods including garlic and onions.
  • Stop smoking.
  • Discuss your medical conditions and medications with a family dentistry expert to determine if they’re causing bad breath.
  • Have tooth decay and gum disease immediately treated at your family dentistry clinic.
