Bad Breath Basics Everyone Should Know

Bad Breath

No matter whether you know it as halitosis or merely bad breath, you know how frustrating and embarrassing this particular condition can be. If ongoing issues with foul breath have been interfering with your ability to enjoy daily life, it may be time to pay a visit to an affordable dentist at your local family dentistry office. Because there are numerous potential causes of bad breath, it is important to seek the assistance of a dental care professional who can get to the root of the problem and determine the proper course of treatment.

The food you eat is one of the most common causes of unpleasant breath. Eating onions, garlic, and other especially aromatic food items can cause you to emit foul odors as you breathe and speak. Failure to stick with a solid dental care program can cause food particles to be left behind in the mouth, thus facilitating the bacterial growth that produces bad breath. Extreme dieters may also suffer from bad breath simply because they do not eat often enough.

Another commonly known cause of bad breath is gum disease and its characteristic buildup of plaque inside the mouth. Dry mouth resulting from poor saliva production is yet another bad breath culprit. Prescription medications and regular breathing via the mouth are often responsible for this condition and subsequent bad breath. If you have a particularly dry mouth, your family dentistry practitioner may prescribe artificial saliva products or recommend that you indulge in sugarless candies to boost production.

Tobacco use is an extremely common cause of bad breath that is also detrimental to your general health. Tobacco products irritate gum tissues, and oral cancer is another dangerous potential side effect. Conquering your tobacco habit will likely improve your breath and improve your chances of living a long, healthy life.

Numerous medical conditions are known for their ability to cause bad breath, including diabetes, lung infections, bronchitis, and liver disease. If you suspect that your halitosis is due to such an illness, you should consult with your physician as well as your dental care professional to find solutions.

If your bad breath is causing you real concern, do not delay when it comes to making an appointment at your local family dentistry office. While you may have an underlying dental situation that can be easily resolved, you may also be facing a more serious medical issue. No matter what, following a rigorous dental care regimen each day can help to drastically reduce your bad breath problem.
