Chronic bad breath can happen to anyone. Even people who practice impeccable oral hygiene can suffer from the condition.
Are you struggling with bad breath?
Schedule an examination and deep dental cleaning at Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS in Murray. Our dental hygienist will get all the plaque and calculus off your teeth. During your examination, Dr. Clint Blackwood will determine whether you have a dental problem that is contributing to your breathing.
In addition to inadequate dental hygiene, the following can cause chronic bad breath:
- Dry mouth
- Digestive issues
- Systemic infection
- Gum disease
- Food particles on tonsils
- Bacteria on dentures or a broken crown
At Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS, we can help you with this unpleasant condition. Even if you think you brush and floss adequately, here’s a refresher course:
Brush for at least 2 minutes
Individuals who have no idea how long they brush can set a timer (there is probably one on your smartphone). When you are finished with your teeth, don’t forget your tongue!
Then take the time to carefully floss around each tooth to clean away the plaque between your teeth and keep your gums healthy.
Some extra-careful oral hygiene pros brush after each meal to prevent particles of food from sitting on their teeth during the day.
Possible dental causes are: a cavity, a broken crown, or gum disease. If we suspect that your bad breath is linked to a non-dental ailment, such as a respiratory infection, you will be referred to an appropriate medical professional.
Treating bad breath starts with a visit to Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS. In addition to general dental care, we provide a complete menu of dental services including wisdom teeth removal, porcelain veneers, and Invisalign.
