Not only can bad breath make you self conscious, but it can also drive you crazy smelling it. However, there are things that you can do to combat bad breath once and for all. Here are the potential causes and remedies you can try to beat the issue once and for all.
Bad breath, a condition known as halitosis, is not only irritating, but it can also be embarrassing and affect your self confidence. Certain foods, health conditions, medications, and poor oral hygiene can all be causes of bad breath. Here is a list of common bad breath causes:
If you have this issue, you’re not alone. 1 in 4 people have bad breath they suffer with each day. The first step in getting rid of bad odor is seeing Dr. Robert Berry and our team at Mountain Aire Dentistry to determine the cause of your issue. During this appointment, we will examine your mouth for signs of cavities and gum disease, which are common culprits. If your mouth is free of those issues, we will then begin to dive into your medical history. We will learn about any and all medications you are currently taking that could potentially be the cause of your mouth odor.
At home, there are things that you can do to try and stop your bad breath. First and foremost, stick to a strict oral hygiene routine. You should be brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes at a time. Further, you should be flossing once a day to remove any food or other particles that could be lodged between the teeth where a toothbrush can’t reach. Using a mouthwash can also help kill bad-breath causing bacteria in the mouth and freshen your breath for longer periods of time.
