What Causes Foul-Smelling Breath?
There are many causes of foul smells emanating from the mouth. Certain medications and medical disorders may be contributing factors, but the most common causes can be easily prevented.
Dr. Hauser is an excellent family dentist who is deeply committed to meeting our patients’ needs. When visiting Lakefront Family Dentistry, expect to always be greeted by friendly, knowledgeable staff.
We genuinely care about your concerns and understand what patients are looking for when trusting us with their oral care needs.
Ways to Maintain Long Lasting Fresh Breath
- Brush 2x daily for 2 minutes each time
- Use an ADA approved toothbrush
- Electric toothbrushes, such as the Sonicare DiamondClean, are more 4x effective than manual brushes
- Floss after every meal
- Avoid tobacco products
- Avoid acidic drinks and soda
- Drink 8 glasses of water daily
Here are Some Common Reasons for ‘Less-Than-Pleasant’ Smelling Breath
Reason #1: The Food We Consume
Certain foods digested through the blood stream produce malodorous gasses, smelled when exhaled through the mouth.
Solution: Avoid certain foods, such as, garlic, onions, peppers, coffee, and alcohol.
Reason #2: Infrequent Brushing and Flossing
It’s extremely important not to let food and other harmful bacteria remain in the mouth and teeth. Dr. Hauser recommends brushing for 2 minutes at least 2 times a day. Failure to do so increases the risk for food and infectious bacteria to cause harmful plaque and tooth decay.
Solution: Most benefit is gained when we brush a minimum of twice daily. Doing this, along with flossing after meals, greatly increases the chances of maintaining fresh, healthy smiles.
Reason #3: Gum Infection and Oral Disease
Periodontal disease affects nearly 50% of American adults. Left alone, decaying food and infectious bacteria in the mouth are direct contributors to pungent, chronic oral problems.
Solution: People who visit their licensed, qualified dentist, like Dr. Hauser, for preventive exams and professional teeth cleaning have less risk of developing gum disease. Make sure to visit us at Lakefront Family Dentistry every 6 months to help continually promote healthy, bright smiles for the entire family.
Reason #4: Smoking Cigarettes
Everyone knows cigarettes have harmful health effects. Yet, it’s an addiction affecting the lives of millions across the nation. Inhaling smoke through the lungs and exhaling through the mouth leaves behind chemical residue in the nose and mouth that produces a malodorous smell.
Solution: Avoid smoking at all costs. Contact your primary medical care provider to discuss treatment options for nicotine addiction.
