If you are suffering from bad breath, in most cases it can be easily treated. However, bad breath can also be caused by underlying health conditions, which first must be cared for and eliminated before bad breath can be adequately treated.

To help determine what is causing your bad breath, be aware of your lifestyle habits, your health care cleaning routines, and any dietary choices you have. If you’re practicing unhealthy lifestyle habits such as smoking, drinking, or chewing tobacco, you are at an immediate risk for bad breath. Eliminate these unhealthy habits to lower your risk for bad breath and improve your oral health.

Always make sure your health care is in good standing, including brushing and flossing daily. In addition, it is important to keep your tongue clean, so use a tongue scraper or toothbrush to scrape away any bacteria that can linger on it. In addition, visit your dentist for oral examinations and routine checkups to determine if you are suffering from any forms of bad breath or other oral health conditions. For additional oral health care treatments, visit your dentist for bi-annual professional cleanings.
