Anyone with chronic bad breath understands the embarrassment and frustration associated with this condition. As unpleasant as it is, rest assured we can help at Future of Dentistry.

There are several possible causes for bad breath, some that you may overlook:

  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

If your bad breath is the result of poor oral hygiene, you’re in luck — this is one of the easiest types to treat. Make sure you brush for a full three minutes before you climb into bed. (Don’t forget to floss!)

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 floss around each tooth to wash away the plaque between your teeth and keep your gums healthy.

You can also brush after each meal to prevent food debris from sitting on their teeth. In addition to freshening your breath, brushing after each meal will improve your dental health.

Treating bad breath starts with a visit to Future of Dentistry. Be sure to mention it! Patients come to us from throughout Greater Boston and Merrimack Valley come to us for general and family dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and much more. Call to schedule an appointment today!
