Bad breath is a delicate and complex topic.

It is something that has many causes but can ultimately result in a knock to your self-confidence. It can also be a daunting issue to share but without doing so you may never know ways to improve things.

At Dove Dental our team will be sensitive to your concerns. Not only will we help you on the road to fresh breath, but our professional advice is invaluable for uncovering the cause.

What Habits Can Cause Bad Breath?

Several habits rank high when it comes to causes of bad breath, but few beat tobacco use. Not only smoking, but the health risks are a concern as well. Besides that, a high-sugar diet does not help; your mouth’s natural bacteria will break down the excess sugars and develop plaque and tartar on your teeth and gums. People who skip regular meals face another challenge: you need a healthy amount of saliva to help keep your mouth from getting dry and odourless. It also affects those who routinely breathe through their mouths instead of their nose. 

    Bad breath can be the result of:

    • Strong foods, such as garlic and onions
    • Poor dental hygiene
    • Regular consumption of alcohol and cigarettes
    • Food caught between teeth
    • Dry mouth
    • Bacteria on the tongue
    • Gingivitis and periodontal disease (the two most common types of gum disease)
    • Health issues in another part of your body e.g. throat, liver, kidneys, lungs

    Fresh Breath Services FAQ

    Can Bad Breath Signal Underlying Health Problems?

    Persistent bad breath may be caused by a medical condition. Slightly fruity breath might be a sign of diabetes, while a strong, ammonia-like smell may be indicative of kidney disease. Periodontal diseases like gingivitis will lead to bad breath because of the excessive presence of bacteria in the mouth. Dry mouth reduces saliva and as a result, saliva is unable to sufficiently flush away harmful particles from your teeth and gums causing bad breath. If you are concerned that bad breath might be indicative of a bigger issue, or if you can’t seem to fix it by brushing, flossing, and rinsing, consult our dentist.

    Why Is This Treatment Important?

    A combination of routine dental cleanings with at-home oral care helps ensure that your mouth stays healthy. This clean and healthy mouth will boost your appearance, will help you keep your teeth, will ensure you have fresh breath, and will make you feel confident.

    Can A Hygienist Help Prevent Dental Disease?

    That is what the training of the dental hygienist is all about: removing deposits from teeth that form tartar and teaching you how to prevent the tartar from reforming again. With these preventive measures, you can significantly slow the progress of gum disease.
