Have you ever suffered from bad breath? If you have, there are quite a number of things you can try to cover your bad breath. Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do if your bad breath returns on a regular basis. You could try mouthwash and chewing gum. Having bad breath treated is important because it can be an indicator of serious issues.
One common culprit of bad breath is actually dry mouth. Unfortunately, this dental condition can be caused by a number of issues, such as smoking and different medications. This problem is more serious than you might expect because saliva can protect your pearly whites. You see, saliva carries small food particles away from your teeth and gums. Unfortunately, individuals who suffer from dry mouth don’t produce enough saliva to enjoy this protection. If you have dry mouth, we suggest visiting our dentist as soon as possible and drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated.
Bacteria on your teeth and gums could also be the reason you have bad breath. If you are suffering from gum disease or tooth decay, you’ll be much more likely to have recurrent bad breath. This can be a serious problem, especially because both of these issues can be extremely hard to recognize. However, our team is trained to notice and address these problems, which is one reason we suggest scheduling regular checkups with our dentist.
