How to Control Bad Breath

 In News
The best way to learn about what’s causing your bad breath is to visit your dental professional. At Exploits Valley Dental Office, we will take the time to analyze your medical and dental history, along with an oral exam to identify the culprit. There are a number of causes for bad breath which can include any of the following: 
  • Foods
  • Alcohol
  • Cigarettes
  • Poor Oral Hygiene
  • Periodontal Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Dry Mouth
  • Sinus or Throat Infections
  • Lung Infections
  • Kidney/Liver Failture 
  • Gastrointestinal Issues
  • Severe Dieting 
To help prevent or treat bad breath, good oral hygiene habits are critical! Be sure to brush twice a day with a fluoride antibacterial toothpaste and floss to remove food and plaque buildup between your teeth. Be thorough by brushing your tongue to remove any odour-causing bacteria. Some toothbrushes have a tongue cleaner or you can purchase a tongue scraper to help do the job. Schedule a visit with us at Exploits Valley Dental Office in Grand Falls-Windsor to help with bad breath!
