Eliminate Underlying Causes of Your Bad Breath Problem
There are many possible causes of bad breath. Bacteria in your mouth is one of the most common, especially if it has already caused:
- Gum disease
- Dry mouth
In these cases, we will treat the underlying causes. Removing bacteria-filled plaque from your teeth with a thorough dental cleaning usually helps. If we find cavities in any of your teeth, we’ll remove all the odor-causing decay and seal your tooth with a filling to protect it from further decay. For larger cavities, we may use a dental crown. If decay has gotten into the center of your tooth, you will likely need a root canal.
A good dental cleaning can also treat minor cases of gum disease. For more advanced cases, we’ll suggest a deep cleaning gum disease treatment called scaling and root planing. In addition, we advise using an antibacterial mouth rinse called Tooth & Gums Tonic. The tonic is also a good treatment for dry mouth.
Fight Bad Breath With Good Oral Hygiene
Good oral care goes a long way toward fighting bad breath. So you’ll want to create a regular tooth brushing and flossing routine. Brushing your tongue or using a tongue scraper can also really help. Other tips include:
- Drink lots of water
- Chew sugar-free gum or suck on sugar-free mints
- Don’t smoke or use other tobacco products
