Treating Bad Breath (Halitosis) in Tri-Cities, WA
Bad breath, or halitosis, is unpleasant and embarrassing. If you are using mouthwashes and breath fresheners, but nothing seems to help, then you may be suffering from chronic bad breath, halitosis.
Dental problems: Cavities and deeper pockets from gum disease give bad breath bacteria extra places to hide in your mouth that are difficult to clear out when you’re brushing or cleaning between your teeth.
Mouth, nose and throat infections: Nose, sinus and throat issues that can lead to postnasal drip may also contribute to bad breath.
Dry mouth: If you don’t make enough saliva, one sign may be halitosis. Dry mouth can be caused by medications, certain medical conditions, alcohol use, tobacco use or excessive caffeine.
Smoking and tobacco:Not only do many tobacco products leave their own odor on your breath; they can also dry out your mouth. Smokers are also more likely to develop gum disease, which can also add to halitosis.
Simply brushing and flossing daily may be all it takes to eliminate your bad breath. But if not, many other conditions may not be easily self-diagnosed. Tri-City Dental Care can help determine the source of your bad breath, provide treatment plans to eliminate the condition and give you the confidence to be up close and personal!
