Bad Breath Getting in Your Way?

One of the most frustrating, but also preventable, dental concerns is chronic bad breath. Also known as halitosis, bad breath can affect patients of any age, experience or background. Contrary to what you may think, those onions and garlic are not the primary cause of your chronic bad breath.

If bad breath is constant and never seems to go away, it is very likely that the cause has nothing to do with your diet. More commonly, chronic bad breath results from negligent dental care. Did you know that skipping your dental appointments or not flossing at home could give you halitosis?

The fastest way to reverse your chronic bad breath is to take better care of your teeth and gums. Even if you brush daily, this simply isn’t enough to keep your teeth healthy and fight away bad breath germs. You must brush your teeth twice daily, or preferably after every meal. Be sure to brush your tongue as well and even lightly on the roof of your mouth to get bad breath germs where they hide.

Flossing is also important. The germs that cause bad breath, but also gum disease, like to hide between your teeth and the in pockets along your gum line. By sweeping these away with floss you not only keep your gums strong but your breath will be fresher.

Finally, be sure to keep those dental appointments. No matter how often you brush your teeth there is likely plaque on your teeth that cannot be removed at home. By having your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year, you will remove built-up plaque that harbors bad breath germs.
