Bad breath is a common and inconvenient problem many people suffer from. If you’re a victim of bad breath, our dentist, Dr. Daniel Bishop, is happy to help you. One way to help is by telling you all about bad breath. This can give you an idea of the causes and treatments of bad breath, which can help you achieve the fresh breath you deserve. So, he is happy to share the following facts with you:

-There are many things that could be causing your bad breath. Some of those things include poor oral hygiene, improperly cleaned oral appliances (like braces and dentures), poor oral hygiene, dry mouth, tobacco use and periodontal disease.

-In most cases, improving your oral hygiene can help improve your breath. However, if a more serious problem is causing the bad breath, like periodontal disease and tobacco use, then professional treatment and help is required.

-Doing simple things like sipping on water throughout the day can help you improve your bad breath. This is because the water washes the teeth, gums and tongue as you check off your to-do lists.

-You can also improve your breath by cleaning your tongue. This is because the odorous bacteria that sit on the surface of the tongue are often the cause of the bad breath. All you need to do is brush your tongue after you brush your teeth or use a tongue scraper.
