How To Treat the Trouble of Halitosis

Halitosis is simply the dental name for persistent bad breath. Research shows it afflicts 20 percent of people. If you suffer from bad breath, discover some good ideas to treat and prevent the problem.

Common Causes of Halitosis

Before you can get rid of bad breath, you need to know why your breath is so bad. See why most people suffer from this prevalent problem:

  • Insufficient brushing
  • Forgetting to floss every day
  • Failure to see an affordable dentist for twice-a-year check-ups and cleanings
  • Plaque build-up on teeth, gums, and tongue that breeds sour-smelling bacteria
  • Odor-causing foods and drinks, such as garlic, onions, and coffee
  • Smoking
  • Dry mouth, which means that there isn’t enough saliva to wash away lingering oral bacteria
  • Oral infections
  • Medical conditions and medications

Stop Bad Breath from Starting

Once you understand the roots of halitosis, you can completely prevent the problem. Family dentistry experts advise improving your oral hygiene to keep breath from going bad. Follow these proven pointers to prevent the bane of bad breath:

  • Brush well at least twice a day, yet preferably after each time you eat.
  • Use a toothpaste specially formulated for halitosis. Ask your family dentistry clinic for brand recommendations.
  • Floss at least once a day, but preferably after every meal and snack.
  • Rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash to kill any hidden bacteria in your mouth.
  • Use a tongue scraper to remove bacteria build-up on your tongue that results in bad breath.
  • See an affordable dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.
