A Few Causes of Bad Breath

Posted .

Bad breath can be unpleasant for everyone involved—but do you know what you might do to prevent the issue? While reaching for your mouthwash might seem like the simplest solution, it may not always be the best one. In fact, if you find yourself using mouthwash regularly, your mouthwash could actually be concealing a deeper issue.

There are many different issues that can lead to bad breath. For instance, an imbalanced diet, acid reflux, diabetes, gum disease, smoking, drinking alcohol, and even some prescription medications can all lead to bad breath. Fortunately, our team can help you avoid these problems. The most common reason for bad breath is poor dental hygiene—which we can help you reverse quickly.

Brushing and flossing properly can be an important part of preventing bad breath. Similarly, if bad bacteria are the cause of your bad breath, you could consider using a tongue scraper to keep your breath fresh. Mouthwash can be used to help you keep your mouth clean and kill bacteria. If you have recurring bad breath, we recommend scheduling an appointment with us.
