bad breath treatments Grapevine

This post from Mason Dental in Grapevine focuses on a problem experienced by many people, bad breath.

Bad breath, or halitosis, has several causes. The most common is inadequate oral hygiene.

Often, halitosis develops midday due to the inability to brush teeth between meals. Small food fragments on the teeth, gums, and tongue grow bacteria. This creates a sulfur compound, which emits the undesirable odor. Food particles, bacteria, and sulfuric gas all need to be removed to eliminate bad breath caused by poor oral hygiene.

Other factors can contribute to or worsen the issue. The best remedy is regular, thorough brushing and flossing, but other actions might also be needed.

For example, a salivary gland issue or certain medications can cause dry mouth. Saliva moistens the teeth and gums, clearing away odiferous dead cells. Saliva also neutralizes the ever-present acids on the tongue, gums, and cheeks. Limiting caffeine, chewing sugar-free gum, using OTC saliva substitutes, and using a humidifier can add moisture to the mouth.

The best defense against bad breath is a good dental care routine – brushing, flossing, and regular visits to the dentist.
