Fed Up With Bad Breath?

May 7, 2018

Are you self-conscious about your breath? Maybe you’ve tried various mints and gums to help, but no matter what you chew you are still suffering from it. Instead of turning to these temporary solutions, it’s time to see the dentist!

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, can be a very distressing dental condition. It decreases self-esteem and can impact meaningful relationships especially when you have chronic halitosis. Products in the market are good, but they often offer temporary measures and do not really address the underlying cause of bad breath.

What you need to do about halitosis

The first important thing to learn is the underlying cause of your bad breath. There are several reasons why people suffer from bad breath. Medical conditions such as cancer and throat problems, certain foods and habits, prescribed medications, poor oral hygiene, dry mouth, infections and other oral problems such as cavities are some of the most common causes of halitosis. Treating the underlying cause can have a direct effect on preventing bad breath.

Oral problems such as cavities or mouth infections must be addressed as early as possible to prevent the problem from further developing. To understand the underlying reason, visit your dentist for a dental check-up and cleaning. Furthermore, a proper daily oral hygiene routine is necessary to prevent and control bad breath.
