Why Do I Need Bad Breath Treatment?

Patients seek bad breath treatment for a number of reasons.

For most people, bad breath is caused by one, or a combination, of the following:

Smoking; It can come as no surprise that smoking is a significant cause of bad breath. Taking toxic smoke into your mouth on a regular basis will make your mouth smell like smoke. Smoking can also cause a buildup of dirt and bacteria in the mouth.

Diet; Strong smelling foods such as garlic, onions and coffee can cause your breath to smell but, if you have a good dental hygiene routine, consuming these in moderation should not cause a long-term problem. More than strong smelling foods, it is regular consumption high sugar foods that can contribute to problems with the teeth and gums, including bad breath.

Poor dental hygiene; If you’re not brushing and flossing regularly you are highly likely to end up with food stuck in your teeth, which will rot and lead to bad breath.

Medical conditions; If you don’t smoke and you look after your teeth well but still you feel that you need bad breath treatment then it could be that you have an underlying medical condition – such as a throat infection, or a problem with your lungs and you should seek advice from your dentist right away.

Fresh Breath Treatment to Try at Home

Before you visit the dentist seeking a bad breath cure, make sure you are doing all you can at home to keep your mouth fresh. Brush and floss your teeth at least twice per day – at morning and before bed.

Be thorough.

You may also decide to brush more regularly or to rinse your mouth out after sugary or strong smelling foods.

If you do all of this and still feel that you need bad breath treatment, consult your dentist.
