Bad breath can be an unpleasant occurrence for everyone within a certain radius, and more than that, it may be a sign that you are struggling with an existing medical condition. If you seem to have persistent bad breath, we encourage you to speak with our dentist about your treatment options.

If you have sour breath after eating, try chewing a piece of sugarless gum or taking a breath mint to mask any food hovering on your breath. If a lack of saliva is causing your breath to smell stale, chewing gum can stimulate saliva production.

Bad breath can also result from a lack of oral hygiene, which means you should make extra efforts to clean your teeth often, such as brushing and flossing your teeth with ADA-approved dental products and scrubbing the roof of your mouth and your tongue, as well as swishing mouthwash around your mouth to kill remaining bacteria.

If oral care isn’t sufficient, we encourage you to speak with the dentist about any medical conditions, including gum disease and dry mouth, that could be causing your bad breath. It is possible that bad breath is just one symptom of a more concerning issue.
