Is Bad Breath Putting a Damper on Things?

Bad Breath

Everyone experiences bad breath at some point. Whether it’s the early-morning stench of settled bacteria after a long’s night sleep or you ate a double cheeseburger with extra onions, bad breath happens. In these cases, it’s easy to identify the cause, but for some individuals, bad breath may be due to a more significant problem. If you are experiencing bad breath, see an affordable dentist in Englewood. Dental care professionals are great resources for helping you discover the cause of bad breath and can give you dental care tips and treatment options.

Use the following recommendations from family dentistry experts to make changes in your dental care that will help reduce bad breath.

1. Check Your Diet.

Everybody knows that certain foods guarantee the onslaught of bad breath. While they bring a delicious flavor to a meal, the after-effects are often unpleasant for those around you. Garlic and onions are some of the most common offenders, but red wine and coffee can cause foul odors to be expelled from your mouth, as well. Coffee and wine tend to stain the teeth, creating an attractive environment for malodorous bacteria to linger.

2. Consider Lifestyle Preferences.

Tobacco can leave your mouth smelling like an ashtray. And, it’s no wonder—since smoking is known to do horrible things to your health, why wouldn’t it leave its mark on your mouth? Much like wine and coffee, tobacco can stick to the teeth and gums, causing odors to hang around even before you have had your first smoke of the day.

3. Know Your Medical History.

Underlying medical conditions are common causes of bad breath. Conditions such as acid reflux, uncontrolled diabetes, or an untreated infection can leave your mouth smelling foul. Your dentist can help you identify the problem, but he or she may also consult with a primary care physician and recommend you consider screening for these conditions if no other source of bad breath can be found. Bad breath is often an early warning sign of more serious conditions.

4. Practice Good Dental Care.

You may know the routine, but sometimes life gets in the way and you don’t tend to your oral hygiene or overall health like you should. Brushing your teeth is one of those things that often gets skipped. However, it can affect the smell of your breath (and you don’t want to be that person, do you?) Be sure to brush at least twice daily, but after each meal is even more effective for guarding against foul odors of the mouth. Make sure you are using a high-quality, soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste that carries the ADA seal of acceptance. And don’t forget to brush your tongue while you’re at it—lots of bacteria tend to stick to the tongue and exacerbate odors. Floss daily and visit your dentist for routine check-ups and cleanings to remove plaque and tartar.
