Tips For Fixing Bad Breath

Posted on July 18th, 2019 by Dr. Nikoo Daftary

Millions of Americans suffer from chronic bad breath. It can cause individuals to feel subconscious and anxious about their oral health. Fortunately, the most common cause of bad breath is poor hygiene practices. Your dentists in Chicago can help you find a way to reduce your halitosis.

Maintain Your Gum Health

Many times, bad breath originates from the gums, so it is important to ensure that you are maintaining their health. When bacteria builds up along the gumline it can produce an odor. This can be reduced by keeping up with daily brushing and flossing practices. It is best to brush twice a day and floss at least once to keep your gums in good shape.

Use Mouth a Rinse

Mouth rinses can be used to mask the odor but not solve the problem. If you are subconscious of consistent bad breath, there are solutions that can be used to reduce the scent. Drinking or rinsing your mouth with green or black tea can help to suppress bacterial growth that causes bad breath odors.

Brush Your Tongue

Like your gums, your tongue can also be a source of bad breath. Brushing your tongue every time you brush your teeth will help limit the amount of bacteria growth. Residue can build up in the crevices of the tongue and cause an odor.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
