Bad Breath Demands Good Dental Care

Bad Breath

Bad breath can strike anyone, at any time, and you may not think that there’s anything you can do about it. But think again, because bad breath is within your control and there are many ways to make it better. All it takes it some good sense and good dental care, including practicing healthy hygiene habits, making regular visits to an expert in family dentistry, and knowing the things that make good breath go bad.

First of all, flossing is your friend. Daily flossing can fight bad breath by removing the food particles, plaque, and bacteria that lead to breath that’s less than your best. There have been a number of studies that have revealed a link between bad breath and insufficient flossing. So to stop bad breath before it starts, be sure to floss every day as part of your other good dental care habits, like brushing your teeth twice a day and rinsing with mouthwash.

It may surprise you to learn that saliva does more than moisten your mouth. It actually prevents bad breath by washing away the plaque that makes your breath bad. Yet you need to know that there are certain times when you have less saliva, which means more of a chance of bad breath. These times include:

In the morning – Since your mouth produces less saliva when you sleep, you may wake up with undesirable “morning breath.” The best remedy is flossing first thing in the morning to get your saliva flowing for the day.

Anytime you’re hungry or thirsty – When you’re dehydrated or dieting, there is less activity in your mouth and less reason for your body to produce saliva. That means bad breath. During these times, try to drink more liquids and have something small to eat. A simple stick of chewing gum or a mint is enough to spark saliva and keep breath from getting bad.

After alcoholic drinks – Beverages with alcohol can make your mouth dry and cause bad breath. To prevent this problem, alternate alcoholic drinks with water and make sure to floss after drinking.

And if you always practice good dental care and yet are still plagued by bad breath, you need to talk to an affordable dentist or your doctor to find out if it’s a sign of a more serious health problem. Bad breath can be a symptom of a number of ailments, such as strep throat, gum disease, diabetes, liver disease, or cancer. Discuss your concerns with your family dentistry practitioner or doctor to stop bad breath and stay in good health.
