Bad breath is a problem that most of us experience at one time or another. It’s caused primarily by certain kinds of bacteria in our mouths, as you’ll hear in this video from the American Dental Association.
Fortunately, it’s not usually too tough to beat bad breath. One oral hygiene habit that helps banish bad breath is brushing your tongue, a place where bacteria like to collect.
If you’ve got chronic bad breath, it’s a good idea to visit our Plano, TX dentist office. Bad breath can signal an underlying dental issue like gum disease. If you’ve got gum disease, we can treat it with a deep-cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing or with application of an antibiotic.
No matter what the cause, we can help you beat bad breath! Call 1st in Smiles at 972-380-8105.
