7 Surprising Causes Of Bad Breath

bad breath treatment Salt Lake City

Men and women who have chronic bad breath understand the embarrassment and frustration associated with this malady. There are several possible causes, some that are often overlooked:

  1. Poor oral hygiene
  2. Digestive problems
  3. Systemic infection
  4. Bacteria on dentures
  5. Gum disease
  6. Food particles on tonsils
  7. Dry mouth

At Bateman Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry, we can help you with this unpleasant problem. If your bad breath is the result of poor oral hygiene, you're in luck—this is one of the easiest types to treat. If you have visited our dental blog before, you know step one: make sure you brush for a full three minutes and floss before you climb into bed.

Men and women who have no idea how long they brush can set a timer (there is probably one on your smartphone). In addition to cleaning tooth surfaces, scrub your tongue! Then take the time to carefully floss around each tooth to wipe away the plaque between your teeth and keep your gums healthy.

Some extra-careful oral hygiene pros brush after each meal to prevent particles of food from sitting on their teeth during the day. In addition to freshening your breath, practicing correct oral hygiene will improve your health.

Schedule an examination and deep dental cleaning at Bateman Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry in Lehi. Our dental hygienist will get all the plaque and calculus off your teeth. During your examination, Doctor Andrew Bateman will determine whether you have a dental problem that is contributing to your breath.

Possible dental causes are a cavity, a broken crown, or gum disease. If we suspect that your bad breath is associated with a non-dental condition, such as a respiratory infection, you will be referred to an appropriate medical professional.

Treating bad breath starts with a visit to Bateman Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry. In addition to general dental care, we provide a complete menu of dental services including dental implants, orthodontics, and dental veneers. Call 18017664042 today!
