Bad Breath Treatments
Your Salt Lake City Dentists Have Experience Treating Bad Breath
There are many different causes of Bad Breath. Ranging from stomach problems to diets and teeth problems, most of the causes can be found in the mouth. They are:
- Alcohol and tobacco
- Teeth cavities
- Tongue (when bacteria grows in between the papilla)
- Gum diseases
- Dentures when not cleaned properly
- Extraction sites during healing
The first step to Bad Breath Treatment is a dental check up. Your Salt Lake City Dentists can confirm or rule out the source of Bad Breath.
When the source is found, treatment will be determined and explained by Your Salt Lake City Dentists. If the cause of the Bad Breath is your mouth, there is little chance that mouth washes or mints can treat the problem. Typically they mask the problem for a short period of time, and can sometimes worsen the situation (mouthwashes that contain alcohol cause dry mouth and usually make Bad Breath worse).
These are a few other, non-dental reasons that cause Bad Breath:
- Some food
- Sore throat
- Infection of air passages
Following a good oral hygiene routine and visiting Your Salt Lake City Dentists regularly are the best ways to prevent Bad Breath. If you live in or around Salt Lake City, call today at (801) 582-5787 to schedule an appointment and get rid of Bad Breath forever!
