This post from Wildflower Dental in Sun Ciy AZ concerns a sensitive subject: bad breath.
People who have chronic bad breath understand the embarrassment and frustration associated with this malady. There are several possible causes, some that are often overlooked:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Digestive problems
- Systemic infection
- Bacteria on dentures
- Gum disease
- Food particles on tonsils
- Dry mouth
At Wildflower Dental, we can help you with this distressing issue. If your bad breath is the result of inadequate oral hygiene, you’re in luck—this is one of the least complicated types to treat. If you have visited our dental blog before, you know step one: make sure you brush for a full three minutes and floss before you climb into bed.
If you who have no idea how long you brush for, you can set a timer (there is probably one on your smartphone). In addition to cleaning tooth surfaces, remember to scrub your tongue! Then take the time to carefully floss around each tooth to clean away the plaque between them, and keep your gums healthy.
Some extra-careful people brush after each meal to prevent particles of food from sitting on their teeth during the day. In addition to freshening your breath, practicing appropriate oral hygiene will improve your health.
