Bad breath (halitosis) usually isn’t serious. Anyone can experience it at any time of the day. It’s usually temporary and is resolved by cleaning your mouth. But if it’s chronic there may be an underlying cause that requires immediate attention.

Preventing Bad Breath

How Your Dentist Can Help

If your bad breath continues to be a problem, your dentist can help. Your dentist can examine your mouth and detect any issues that may be contributing to it.

Your dentist may also refer you to a physician or specialist if they determine the problem is related to another health condition.

If it’s related to your oral health, your dental team will help you manage the problem. They may recommend specific products, such as toothpaste or mouthwash, to prevent bacteria from building up on your teeth.

You may be referred to a periodontist if you’re diagnosed with gum disease. Gum disease can lead to a receding gumline which starts the formation of deep pockets. Bacteria can build up in these areas and can only be removed through professional dental cleanings.

Maintaining Fresh Breath Every Day

Keeping your breath fresh may require you to change some habits. Your dentist will help make the adjustment easier for you, but your cooperation remains the most crucial.

If you’re concerned about your chronic halitosis, discuss it with your dental team. Bad breath happens and taking action to remedy it is nothing to be ashamed of.
