If you suffer from having bad breath constantly and can’t seem to find a solution, you could be suffering from halitosis. Our team here at Carter-Rockbridge General Dentistry P.C. in Norcross, Georgia, is happy to talk to you about overcoming your bad breath and give you important tips and insight in overcoming it.
For starters, food is not the only thing that can produce bad breath. If you have constant bad breath, this could be a condition called halitosis. Halitosis is serious because it could be a warning sign of a serious problem, which is why it is important to talk to your doctor, Dr. Gloria Stingley, so you can get treatment.
There are many things that cause halitosis, such as cavities, dry mouth, foods, tobacco, alcohol, bacteria, and even gum disease. These situations need to be addressed and treated, so you can have your good breath, fully restored. If you brush your teeth twice a day and floss every day, this will help fight off bad breath, as well as an effective mouthwash can. Tongue scrapers can also be a useful tool when it comes to clearing bacteria from your mouth.
