Bad Breath

If you have bad breath, you are probably wondering what exactly is causing it and why you are experiencing it. One of the most common reasons for bad breath is poor oral hygiene. When you fail to brush or floss your teeth, old food particles remain trapped between your teeth and bacteria begins to feed on it, which results in the foul smell. Poor dental hygiene leads to tooth decay, which also causes bad breath.

Another common reason for bad breath is eating strong odor food such as onions and garlic. What happens is when the food is absorbed into your body, it enters your bloodstream, and is eventually exhaled on your breath.

In addition to the above reasons, bad breath may also be caused by some medical conditions including dry mouth, yeast infections in the mouth, sinus infections, diabetes, acid reflux, and more.

Sources of bad breath
  • The mouth: This includes the teeth, the gums, and the top surface (dorsum) of the tongue, especially the very back of the tongue.
  • The upper respiratory tract: This includes the nasal cavities, sinuses, throat, tonsils and the larynx (voice box).
  • The lungs: Bad breath originating from the lungs is either a temporary phenomenon caused by consuming certain foods or drugs, or it is a chronic problem caused by disease processes.
  • The stomach: Technically, this type of bad breath is a subcategory of halitosis, but one that does not originate from the lungs. Bad breath originating from the stomach is caused by disease processes which produce chronic vomiting.

If you are suffering from bad breath, we recommend that you come in for a consultation today. While you are here, we will take x-rays of your mouth and teeth and you will have an exam performed to identify the cause.
If it is determined that the cause of bad breath is due to either tooth decay or gum disease, you will undergo the necessary treatment needed.

At Dovers Dental Clinic, we offer a comprehensive dental treatment called fresh breath therapy designed to get rid of your bad breath. The first treatment step is to provide treatment for any underlying conditions. The next step includes a thorough cleaning of your teeth and, when needed, a deep cleaning to remove plaque and tartar. The last step includes a consultation on how to maintain your oral hygiene.

Preventative Steps
  • After you have had our fresh breath therapy performed, we recommend that you take the necessary steps to prevent halitosis from coming back, as it can. You should stop smoking and drink enough water to keep your mouth hydrated throughout the day.
  • Also, we recommend that you continue to follow up with us to ensure no more problems develop along the way. Lastly, you should always brush and floss your teeth after meals to ensure that food does not remain lodged between your teeth.
