Battling Bad Breath Through Accurate Diagnosis

Bad Breath

Bad breath, or halitosis, can be the result of numerous causes, some of which are more serious than others. Getting a thorough assessment from a skilled, affordable dentist is a good way to get to the bottom of any bad breath issue, and is something you may want to consider. Fortunately, however, by completing a few self-diagnostic tasks, you might just find that your bad breath is something that you can manage effectively all on your own with the proper at-home dental care.

Extremely pungent foods such as garlic and onions can cause bad breath. Beverages like red wine and coffee also can have lasting, negative impacts on the breath due in large part to the fact that those drinks stain the teeth, which causes bad-smelling bacteria to linger.

A top cause of bad breath is poor dental care. To avoid the bad breath that results from simple oral hygiene neglect, you need to brush twice a day, flossing once a day, and schedule regular cleanings and exams at your local family dentistry office. Brushing your tongue will get rid of excess accumulations of odor-causing bacteria, and is another important step in the dental care process to help keep bad breath away.

Illnesses and poor lifestyle habits can also lead to bad breath. Diabetes, acid reflux, and systemic infections have the ability to cause bad breath. Using tobacco use is another quick route to bad breath and can also cause a wide array of other health consequences, including oral cancer.

If the cause of your bad breath is difficult to isolate, your family dentistry professional may want to consult with your doctor so that diagnostic tests can be performed.
