Reasons and Remedies for Bad Breath

Bad Breath

If you’re reeling from dealing with bad breath, the good news is that this common condition is easy to catch and cure. Once you know what’s causing the problem and how to treat it, you’ll be able to breathe easy with good breath.

According to family dentistry experts, the main origins of bad breath are:

Smoking – Tobacco is a top cause of bad breath. Once you’re ready to quit, ask your doctor or a family dentistry expert for advice and tools that can ease the experience.

Strong Foods – We all know that certain foods like garlic and onions can leave your breath less than its best. Unfortunately, these offensive odors linger long after your meal since the smell is still expelled by your breath and your body while the food gets digested.

Dry Mouth – This is a common condition that occurs when there’s not enough saliva to keep your mouth moist and wash away excess germs and food. Once those particles build up on your teeth, they produce an unpleasant odor.

lllness – Bad breath can be a sign of other bad things occurring in your body. It can indicate infections, diseases, and other major health concerns. If you have chronic bad breath and your family dentistry practitioner has said that you don’t have dental problems, see your doctor immediately to catch any concerns at the earliest stage.

The best way to treat bad breath is by practicing good dental care. Brush twice a day and floss at least once a day to remove the food, plaque, and germs that can breed bad breath. While mouthwash can improve bad breath for a brief amount of time, choose an antibacterial mouth rinse if your condition is chronic. You can also keep sugarless mints or gum within reach to freshen your breath on the go.
