Managing Bad Breath
Bad breath is one of the most self-conscious dental problems. It can be caused by a variety of factors like the food you eat, your dental routine, medications and underlying health conditions. If you’re suffering from bad breath or medically termed as ‘Halitosis’, don’t worry because there are ways to treat this problem.
Here at Browns Line Dental, we make sure that our patients have a confident and healthy smile. Our dental team are advocates of routine proper oral care, which is one of the most effective treatments for bad breath.
Brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing once a day, cleaning your tongue and rinsing with mouthwash and water are all the key to treating bad breath. When you ensure routine dental care, you just don’t treat bad breath, but you also prevent other oral problems like dental cavities and plaque, which can also cause bad breath if left unmanaged.
Furthermore, if you want to get rid of bad breath, make sure you also quit smoking and minimize consuming alcohol. Eating healthy meals and drinking plenty of water can also help you manage bad breath too. Lastly avoid sugary food, which is the primary food of acid and odour forming bacteria that contribute to foul odours.
A dentist can prescribe you mouthwash and toothpaste that contain oxygenating agents that will neutralize the sulfur compounds in your mouth that causes bad breath. Dentists are also able to prescribe saliva substitute to moisten mouth if the cause of halitosis is dryness in the mouth.
