What Causes Bad Breath?

There is a difference between occasional bad breath and chronic halitosis. Our experienced dentist will talk with you about your specific situation and conduct a thorough examination to help determine the underlying cause of your condition. Some common causes of breath issues are

  • Food particles and bacteria on the teeth, gums and tongue
  • The use of tobacco products
  • Certain medical conditions
  • Dry mouth
  • Poor dental hygiene

How We Can Help

Our goal is always to prevent problems, so your dentist or hygienist will explain ways of preventing breath issues from arising, such as:

When the problem is already present, we’ll talk with you about various treatment options. Mouthwashes may help in some cases. In other situations, the problem may be caused by an underlying medical condition that must be corrected for your halitosis to subside.

The Importance of Routine Checkups

When you come in regularly for a checkup, scale, and clean, we can identify problems before they escalate. We can let you know if you’re missing areas when you’re brushing and flossing to help minimise the buildup of odour-causing bacteria in the mouth.

In addition, these regular checkups can help us identify issues like gum disease and tooth decay before they reach advanced stages that are more difficult to correct.
