Tips to Getting Rid of Bad Breath

Halitosis can be unpleasant and, in some situations, cause worry. It's no surprise that numerous businesses sell gum, mints, mouthwashes, and other products to assist people to get rid of bad breath. However, because they do not address the fundamental root of the problem, many of these products are effectively band-aid solutions. Dr. Robert Astles in Vero Beach goes above and beyond to provide patients with cutting-edge dental treatments and procedures that can improve their entire health.

What Is Halitosis (Bad Breath)?

Chronic bad breath, often known as halitosis, is frequently caused by poor dental hygiene or dry mouth. The problem could also be a symptom of a more serious oral condition or another illness in your body, such as stomach reflux, diabetes, kidney disease, or liver disease.

Causes of Bad Breath

  • Inadequate dental hygiene
  • Dry mouth
  • Food that stinks
  • Products containing tobacco
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Infections of the mouth
  • Tonsil stones
  • Gum disease 
  • Diabetes

How to Get Rid of Bad Breath?

Drink a Lot of Water

Bacteria in your mouth normally safeguard your teeth from decay. It does, however, contain a huge amount of harmful germs that cause stinky plaque and tartar. Drinking water is the most efficient way to get rid of those smelly microorganisms.

Brush and Floss Your Teeth More Frequently

Cleaning your teeth is the most efficient way to eliminate the germs that cause bad breath. Brushing and flossing your teeth can aid in the prevention of tooth decay.

Get Rid of Your Tobacco Habit

Cigarette smoking can cause gum disease, tooth discoloration, and bad breath, in addition to cancer. If you believe you require assistance, make an appointment with one of our dentists to discuss quit-smoking programs or prescription medicines that can help you quit smoking permanently.

Sugar and Alcoholic Beverages Should Be Avoided

Drinking alcohol dries out your mouth, promoting the growth of foul-smelling bacteria. Sugar feeds and multiplies smelly bacteria.

Consult with Your Dentist Regularly

If you see anything out of the ordinary in your mouth, contact our dentist. Regular dental visits not only help you maintain good oral hygiene, but they can also protect you from illness. Early signs of gum disease, oral cancer, and other diseases can be detected by your dentist.
