bad breath treatment High Point

Anyone with chronic bad breath understands the embarrassment and frustration associated with this ailment. At Crystal Dental Group in High Point, we explain there are several possible causes, some that are often overlooked:

  1. Poor oral hygiene
  2. Digestive problems
  3. Systemic infection
  4. Bacteria on dentures
  5. Gum disease
  6. Food particles on tonsils
  7. Dry mouth

The good news? We can help with this unpleasant trouble. If your bad breath is the result of poor oral hygiene, you’re in luck—this is one of the easiest 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.

People who have no idea how long they brush can set a timer (there is probably one on your smartphone). In addition to cleaning tooth surfaces, scrub your tongue! Then take the time to carefully floss around each tooth to wash away the plaque between your teeth and keep your gums healthy.

Some dedicated oral hygiene pros brush after each meal to prevent food particles from sitting on their teeth during the day. In addition to freshening your breath, practicing proper oral hygiene will improve your health.

Possible dental causes are: a cavity, a broken crown, or gum disease. If we suspect that your bad breath is related to a non-dental condition, such as a respiratory infection, you will be referred to an appropriate medical professional.
