Men and women who have chronic bad breath understand the embarrassment and frustration associated with this condition. There are several possible causes, some that are often overlooked:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Digestive problems
- Systemic infection
- Bacteria on dentures
- Gum disease
- Food particles on tonsils
- Dry mouth
At Pro Systems Dentistry, we can help you with this distressing problem. If your bad breath is the result of negligent oral hygiene, you’re in luck—this is one of the least complicated types to treat. If you have visited our dental blog before, you know step one: make sure you brush for a full three minutes and floss before you climb into bed.
People who have no idea how long they brush can set a timer (there is probably one on your smartphone). In addition to cleaning tooth surfaces, scrub your tongue! Then take the time to carefully floss around each tooth to wipe away the plaque between your teeth and keep your gums healthy.
Some dedicated oral hygiene pros brush after each meal to prevent particles of food from sitting on their teeth during the day. In addition to freshening your breath, practicing correct oral hygiene will improve your health.
Schedule an examination and deep dental cleaning at Pro Systems Dentistry in Taylorsville. Our dental hygienist will get all the plaque and calculus off your teeth. During your examination, Marketing Specialist Kirk Peery will determine whether you have a dental problem that is contributing to your breath.
Possible dental causes are: a cavity, a broken crown, or gum disease. If we suspect that your bad breath is caused by a non-dental condition, such as a respiratory infection, you will be referred to an appropriate medical professional.
Treating bad breath starts with a visit to Pro Systems Dentistry. In addition to general dental care, we provide a complete menu of dental services including dental implants, cleaning and prevention, and dental restorations. Call 801-870-0623 today!
