Sniff out the Most Common Causes of Halitosis

According to family dentistry experts, a wide range of factors can cause halitosis, which is simply another name for bad breath. Discover the reasons and remedies for this embarrassing dental condition.

Good Reasons for Bad Breath

Are you suffering from bad breath, but unsure of why you have it? Review all of these reasons to learn what’s causing your condition:

  • Poor oral hygiene habits, which can leave bacteria and plaque that emit a foul odor in your mouth
  • Failure to get regular check-ups and cleanings, along with dental procedures, from an affordable dentist
  • Pungent foods and drinks, such as garlic, onions, and coffee
  • Dry mouth due to a decreased flow of saliva, which cleanses away built-up bacteria and food
  • Smoking and other tobacco use
  • Oral infections
  • Some medications
  • Certain medical disorders and conditions

How To Help Halitosis

The way to treat most cases of bad breath is with good oral hygiene. Follow these simple tips to keep your breath at its best:

  • Brush twice a day to remove plaque and food that remains on your teeth.
  • Floss at least once a day.
  • Brush your tongue to remove built-up bacteria that leads to halitosis.
  • Drink plenty of water to avoid dry mouth.
  • Go to an affordable dentist at least two times a year for dental check-ups and cleanings.
  • Stop smoking.
  • Have any dental problems treated immediately.
  • Get any post-surgical wounds examined by an affordable dentist.
  • Discuss any medical conditions and medications with a family dentistry expert to see if these may be causing bad breath.
