Bad breath? Talk to your dentist
by: Dental Assistant Team

Bad breath. We all have bad breath once in a while, usually when we eat garlicky food, raw onions, cheese, and other "smelly foods". Medication can also give bad breath as certain medications list bad breath as a side effect.

However, sometimes a more serious digestive issue or yeast infection can be the cause of embarrassing bad breath.

Unhealthy habits such as high consumption of alcohol, smoking, chewing tobacco or poor oral hygiene can get you a really embarrassing bad breath.

One cause of bad breath that is usually overlooked is gingivitis. Gingivitis is a gum disease which is the result of unhealthy gums.

If you do not maintain a good home care routine including brushing & flossing daily (brushing your tongue too), food residue will remain in your mouth, between your teeth and form plaque. Plaque is a bacteria that continues to grow in your mouth if not removed on a daily basis.

Accumulation of the unhealthy plaque will not only cause damage to your teeth but will give you that unwanted bad breath.

A quick rinse with mouth wash will help your bad breath short term, but the underlying cause of your bad breath will remain in your mouth! To picture it, imagine bacteria growing as fast as 20 minutes after eating. If not taken care of, this bacteria will continue to grow and eventually start eating at your teeth, and progress into your gums.

If you brush, floss, brush your tongue on a regular basis (at least twice a day), persistent bad breath is a sign of gum disease.

Take a close look (smell) at your teeth cleaning habits and your breath and talk to your dentist if you notice that your breath is worse than it should be as it could be hiding a serious condition which can put your teeth and your gums in jeopardy.
