Chronic bad breath can happen to anyone. Even individuals who practice impeccable oral hygiene can suffer from the condition.
Are you struggling with bad breath?
Schedule an examination and deep dental cleaning at Montz and Maher Dental Group in Friendswood. Our dental hygienist will get all the plaque and calculus off your teeth. During your examination, Dr. David Montz will determine whether you have a dental problem that is contributing to your breath.
In addition to inadequate dental hygiene, the following can cause chronic bad breath:
- Dry mouth
- Digestive issues
- Systemic infection
- Gum disease
- Food particles on tonsils
- Bacteria on dentures or a broken crown
At Montz and Maher Dental Group, we can help you with this painful ailment. Even if you think you brush and floss adequately, here’s a refresher course:
Brush for at least 2 minutes
People who have no idea how long they brush can set a timer (there is probably one on your smartphone). When you are finished with your teeth, don’t forget your tongue!
Then take the time to carefully floss around each tooth to wash away the plaque between your teeth and keep your gums healthy.
Some committed oral hygiene pros brush after each meal to prevent particles of food from sitting on their teeth during the day.
Possible dental causes are: a cavity, a broken crown, or gum disease. If we suspect that your bad breath is related to a non-dental ailment, such as a respiratory infection, you will be referred to an appropriate medical professional.
Treating bad breath starts with a visit to Montz and Maher Dental Group. In addition to general dental care, we provide a complete menu of dental services including sedation dentistry, teeth whitening, and CEREC dental crowns.
