Our team in Duncanville, Texas, is happy to talk to you about your treatment options for persistent bad breath, also known as halitosis.
Halitosis is an oral health condition that keeps bacteria in your mouth that could be causing your bad breath. There are several triggers for halitosis, however the best way to fight it is to talk to Dr. Edward B. Miller. Your dentist will be able to provide you more information and determine if gum disease is the culprit of your bad breath. If not, there are other tricks you can do to fight it.
Brushing every day for twice a day, while flossing every night are pivotal factors in fighting bad breath. Using a mouthwash to fight the rest of the bacteria can also be successful at clearing your mouth of bad breath. Sometimes, bacteria can stick to your tongue, so be sure to scrape and clean your tongue well to keep bacteria from spreading.
