Bad breath is one of those things that can really cause serious frustration. You think it’s caused by something in particular but then, after the appropriate efforts, you find that your problem still exists! What to do now, you wonder? Why on earth won’t your mouth just get back to smelling fresh again? We are happy to help you figure this out and offer a solution when you come in for a visit.
Fact: You Might Just Need To Brush Better
Your breath problem may be that you’re not getting your smile clean. If you notice bad breath and you also recognize that your dental hygiene could be better, get serious about your brushing. Thorough, two-minute sessions two times daily is where it’s at!
Fact: You May Need To Start Flossing
Not flossing but you’re brushing like you should be? This could be the issue. Flossing removes the decaying food particles and plaque (full of bacteria) from between your teeth. Leave them there and bad breath is almost a given. Floss every day.
Fact: It Could Be The Food
Bad breath that comes and goes might simply be the result of something you’re eating. Track your food intake and your breath to discover the culprit!
Fact: You May Suffer From Dry Mouth
Sometimes, you’re doing all that you should be doing but you just don’t have enough saliva present in your mouth to keep things moist. When the environment becomes dry, bacteria populate your smile more than usual, causing bad odors in the meantime. See our team about this, so we can help.
