Bad Breath Treatment in Ormond

Halitosis or bad breath is embarrassing and, for some, may also cause anxiety. This is one of the reasons why mouthwashes, mints, gums, and similar such products are available in plenty. However, all these products are just going to address the problem temporarily. These products don’t treat the problem at its core and are just temporary measures.

Health conditions, oral habits, and certain foods and beverages are the main causes of bad breath. For some, bad breath can go away by following proper dental care, but for some, there are other dental treatments that will be required to treat the condition.

Gum disease or periodontitis

Dirty dentures (not cleaned properly)

Cracked crowns and fillings

Using tobacco products

Consuming certain foods in excess, such as garlic, onion, and spices

Condition of Xerostomia or Dry Mouth where the decreased production of saliva doesn’t remove the particles present in the mouth, causing bad breath

Diseases such as cancer, metabolic disorders, etc.

Treatment of Dental Issues

If you are suffering from other oral issues such as periodontitis, then our dentist will treat you for gum disease. This disease causes the gums to move away from the teeth leaving open pockets that allow bacteria to accumulate in them. It is these bacteria that cause odour and bad breath. If required, tooth restoration may be performed. Other treatments may include replacement or new placement of filling or crown etc.

Easy to Follow Remedies For Bad Breath Suggested by Our Bendigo Dentists

To prevent or reduce bad breath, our expert dentists at Golden Square Dental suggest the following:

1-Breath Suggested Number

Always brush your teeth after having your meals. You must use a toothpaste with fluoride and one that offers antibacterial properties.

2-Breath Suggested Number

Flossing the teeth helps in removing food particles that get caught between your teeth. You must floss at least once a day.

3-Breath Suggested Number

Bacteria also sits on our tongue. You must always use a tongue scraper or your regular brush to scrape your tongue and remove the white coat collected over it.

4-Breath Suggested Number

Consuming a lot of sugary foods and beverages can cause bacteria to collect in your mouth and between the teeth. The bacteria tend to feed on this sugar and cause bad breath. Certain foods like onion and garlic also cause bad breath. Make healthy choices in food!

5-Breath Suggested Number

Consume a lot of water. This helps in keeping your mouth clean from any particles that may be present in the mouth on which bacteria may feed and cause bad breath.

Tooth Decay
