Combatting Bad Breath: Freshen Up Your Smile

added on: June 14, 2012

Poor breath, known as halitosis, can stem from inadequate dental care practices and might signal underlying health issues. It can also worsen due to dietary choices and unhealthy habits. If you suspect bad breath, consult our Georgetown, TX dental team for guidance. We can pinpoint the cause and, if oral-related, devise a treatment strategy.

Various contributing factors:

  • Your diet can impact breath odor. Foods like garlic and onions leave a lasting scent.
  • Inadequate oral hygiene leads to bacteria buildup, causing tooth decay, and gum disease.
  • Dry mouth reduces saliva flow needed to cleanse the mouth, fostering odor-causing particles.
  • Tobacco products are a known cause of bad breath. Seek advice on quitting smoking.
  • Bad breath can signal medical conditions like infections, sinusitis, diabetes, or liver/kidney disorders. Consult your Georgetown, TX dentist if needed.

Combat bad breath by prioritizing oral health in Georgetown, TX. Regular dental visits for cleanings and checkups are crucial. Brush twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, including your tongue, to remove debris and plaque.
