Is bad breath a problem for you?
Get to the root cause of your chronic halitosis by scheduling an appointment with the team at the Lake in the Hills-based Compassionate Dental Care.
During regular checkups, the dentist carefully reviews each tooth and the surrounding soft tissue looking for signs of the most common oral health issues including tooth decay and gum disease, which could be contributing to your bad breath. The hygienist then systematically removes plaque and tartar from even the hardest to access parts of teeth that may be missed by daily at-home care.
At home, make sure to follow a regular oral hygiene routine which includes brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing daily, and using mouthwash. And don’t forget about cleaning your tongue. Use a toothbrush or tongue scraper to help clear away the bacteria that collects there.
Do you wear dentures? Make sure to take them out at night and clean them thoroughly before putting them back in the next day.
Other causes for your bad breath can include the food you eat, such as garlic and onions, the use of smoking and tobacco products, or non-dental medical conditions.
