Millions of people around the world suffer from bad breath, which is also called halitosis. Fortunately, bad breath can be cured or completely avoided with the following simple strategies.

Halitosis can be caused by many different factors. But family dentistry specialists have identified the eight main reasons you may be battling bad breath. These include:

  1. Poor at-home oral hygiene
  2. Lack of professional dental care from an affordable dentist
  3. Odorous foods such as garlic, onions, and exotic spices
  4. Smoking
  5. Dry mouth
  6. Oral infections
  7. Medical problems cancer, diabetes, kidney disorders, liver diseases, and like sinus infections
  8. Some medications

Help for Halitosis

It can be surprisingly simple to treat and even prevent bad breath. Simply follow these smart suggestions from family dentistry specialists to make your breath much better:

  • Brush at least two times a day, preferably after every time you eat.
  • Floss at least once a day.
  • Brush your tongue to scrape away any built-up bacteria that can lead to bad breath.
  • Get twice-yearly check-ups and cleanings from an affordable dentist.
  • Treat any existing dental problems.
  • Stop smoking or using tobacco.
  • Avoid dry mouth by drinking water throughout the day to rinse any odor-causing bacteria.
  • Discuss your medical conditions and medications with a family dentistry expert to see if they’re contributing to your case of bad breath.
