Everyone experiences bad breath from time to time, but having chronic bad breath can be an embarrassing problem. The good news is that there are steps that you and your dentist in Belmont can take to prevent bad breath. Watch this video clip to find out more.
Maintaining a regular oral hygiene routine is essential not only for preventing tooth decay and gum disease, but also for keeping bad breath at bay. Visiting your dentist for regular tooth cleanings is also important for preventing bad breath. When you experience bad breath, try rinsing your mouth out with water if you cannot brush your teeth at that time, and avoid relying on breath mints that contain sugar. These mints only mask the problem and can make you more susceptible to tooth decay. If you keep up with your oral hygiene as recommended but still experience bad breath, schedule an appointment with your dentist to find out what you can do to address this problem.
