Help for Halitosis

Halitosis is simply another way of saying bad breath. If you suffer from this problem, you’re not alone, and you’re able to treat it with ease. Discover some simple tips to bid bad breath farewell.

Common Causes of Halitosis

Did you know that dental issues are often the cause of halitosis? Perhaps you’ve lagged on proper oral hygiene, have excessive decay, or simply suffer from unhealthy habits. The result of all these dental dangers is persistent 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
  • Lack of regular visits to an affordable dentist for check-ups and cleanings
  • Oral yeast infections
  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Smoking

Good Advice for Bad Breath

According to family dentistry experts, most cases of halitosis can be reversed with proper dental hygiene. That’s because the root of numerous dental problems is oral bacteria, which results from unhealthy 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 twice a day or more.
  • Floss daily.
  • Scrape your tongue to remove lingering bacteria.
  • Quit smoking.
  • Rinse with mouthwash after consuming odor-inducing foods such as onions and garlic.
  • See an affordable dentist twice a year for check-ups and cleanings.
  • Schedule treatment for tooth decay and gum disease as soon as possible.
  • Ask your family dentistry practice whether your medical conditions or medications could be the cause of your bad breath.
