At 6 Day Dental & Orthodontics, we understand that no one likes dealing with bad breath. Millions of people have persistent bad breath, otherwise known as halitosis.
Causes of halitosis may include dry mouth, dental issues or leftover food particles and bacteria in the mouth. Tobacco products, chronic sinusitis, chronic bronchitis, diabetes, liver or kidney problems or certain medications could also be to blame.
Practicing good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing regularly is usually an effective way to combat bad breath. By properly brushing your teeth and cleaning your tongue, you'll remove bacteria and food particles. Flossing between your teeth removes accumulated bacteria, plaque and food that may be trapped there as well.
If good oral hygiene is still leaving you with bad breath, talk with your 6 Day Dental & Orthodontics experts. A professional cleaning may be necessary in order to remove bacteria you are not able to reach. We will also check carefully for gum disease which could be the root of your problem.
