An Expert Guide To Treating Halitosis

Do you suffer from bad breath? Dentists call this condition halitosis, and it’s a prevalent problem today. Learn how to reverse and prevent this dental concern.

Dental Hygiene Can Harm or Help Your Breath

Most cases of halitosis are caused by odorous bacteria that collects on your teeth, between your gums, and on your tongue. It’s often found in people who suffer from gum disease, because the condition causes deep spaces between your teeth and gums, which tends to trap food particles. Over time, this food attracts bacteria and leads to very bad breath. The way to avoid both bacteria build-up and gum disease is by practicing good oral hygiene habits that remove the oral bacteria and keep your mouth clean.

How Lifestyle Leads To Bad Breath

While poor oral hygiene is to blame for many cases of bad breath, your lifestyle also plays a part in the quality of your breath. Certain lifestyle factors can leave your breath very bad, such as:

  • Dry mouth due to low saliva production
  • Snoring
  • Strong foods such as garlic and onions
  • Some medications
  • Certain medical conditions
  • Smoking

If any of these factor into your lifestyle, talk to an affordable dentist about facing them to reverse or prevent halitosis.

Treatment Tips for Halitosis

No matter whether halitosis is caused by poor oral hygiene habits or lifestyle factors, maintaining a regular dental hygiene routine will help you fight or prevent the problem. Follow these simple tips to beat bad breath:

  • Brush teeth at least two times a day, but preferably after every meal.
  • Floss daily.
  • Rinse with an anti-bacterial mouth rinse every day.
  • Get regular check-ups and cleanings from an affordable dentist.
  • Drink plenty of water to wash away oral bacteria and reduce dry mouth.
  • Curb your intake of foods that cause bad breath.
  • Stop smoking.
  • Discuss your medical conditions and medications with a family dentistry expert.
