Bad breath can ruin an otherwise great day. It can leave you self conscious every time you open your mouth. You could consider using mouthwash, but this may only be hiding a deeper issues. Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to beat bad breath at the source.
Bad breath could be caused by a number of issues you have direct control over. For example, did you know that bad breath could be caused by smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, or even an imbalanced diet? However, at times you may not be able to prevent the issues that cause bad breath on your own. For instance, did you know that certain medications and acid reflux can cause bad breath as well? However, the most common reason for bad breath is poor dental hygiene—which can be reversed quickly.
Brushing and flossing properly can be an important part of preventing bad breath. Similarly, if bad bacteria are the cause of your bad breath, you could consider using a tongue scraper to keep your breath fresh. Mouthwash can be used to help you keep your mouth clean and kill bacteria. If you have recurring bad breath, we recommend scheduling an appointment with us.
