Bad Breath

How to spot if you have bad breath.

Bad breath affects many people, but many times they don’t know they have bad breath. There are many causes that can give you bad breath, and if you can recognize the  symptoms you can keep yourself smelling fresh.

  • Bad dental hygiene
  • Bad diet
  • Smoking
  • Certain medications
  • Overall bad health
  • Oral disease
  • Another illness

  • Bad odor from the mouth
  • Dry Mouth
  • Unpleasant taste in the mouth
  • White coating on the tongue

There are several ways to prevent bad breath from occurring. To avoid bad breath, you should consider flossing after every meal (especially when eating foods with strong odors), brushing your teeth regularly, eating foods that don’t smell unpleasant, and chewing sugar-free gum regularly.

During your visit, we will conduct a comprehensive exam to make sure we know exactly what is going on with your teeth. After reviewing the results of your exam, you will be seen by our dental hygienist. We will then identify any bad habits you have that are contributing to bad breath, and give you tips to keep your breath smelling good.
