Possible Causes of Bad Breath

Possible Causes of Bad Breath
Possible Causes of Bad BreathHaving bad breath is not only embarrassing, it is something that countless individuals must struggle with every single day. Luckily, there are a few steps that can be taken by a patient to avoid halitosis permanently. Here is a look at this condition with our Culver City dentist and a few of the basic tips that can be used to make bad breath a thing of the past.

Bad breath is often the results of the foods and drinks that one consumes. While brushing and mouth wash may be able to temporarily mask these smells, they are not going to go away until the consumables have completely passed from one’s system. Some of the worst offenders include coffees, onions, and garlic, and these items will be broken down into the blood stream and will linger for hours.

The condition of having chronic bad breath is called halitosis, and is going to require a slightly different approach. Halitosis may be the result of periodontal disease, a tooth abscess, or even basic gingivitis. In order to combat these conditions, it is important to seek out regular dental checkups so that our dentist is able to thoroughly examine the teeth and gums. We may also be able to offer gum treatment in which we can attack the root causes of bad breath and not just the side effects.

If you or someone you love is suffering from bad breath, our dental practice is here to help. Give us a call today to see which treatments and services may be available to you.
