Bad Breath Solutions in Franklin

Bad Breath Solutions in FranklinHalitosis, better known as bad breath, is usually caused by the millions of bacteria in the mouth that feed on food particles. The result is an unpleasant odor from the sulphur compound that is emitted from the bacteria. There are many causes of bad breath, several of which your dentist can treat:

  • Gum infection
  • Decay in teeth
  • Dry mouth

Smoking and drinking alcohol may worsen this issue. If your dentist finds that there are no existing problems with your mouth, we may refer you to a medical practitioner to determine if bad breath could be related to sinusitis or bronchitis, stomach problems, diabetes or liver and kidney issues.

Keeping a Fresh Feeling

Brushing your teeth and tongue with a fluoride toothpaste and flossing are the most effective ways to eliminate halitosis. There are other things you can do as well, such as drinking plenty of water, chewing sugar-free gum after meals, quitting smoking, eating a balanced diet and keeping your regular dental checkups.
