Bad Breath: Need A Quick Fix Or Professional Help?

There’s not just one type of bad breath if you want to get detailed about it (and you’re going to want to if you are ready for your smelly mouth to return to its previous existence as a pleasant smelling mouth). Here’s what you need to remember: There’s breath that you can easily improve with a quick fix because the issue is very basic to address. Then, there’s the unfortunate breath that needs professional help because the quick fixes are absolutely not going to cut it. Which is which and how to know, you wonder? Let’s ensure you have these details all squared away!

Quick Fixes That May Work

Of course, it’s possible that your bad breath is not serious, long-lasting, chronic halitosis that points to a problem requiring a major shift. Instead, you may just need a quick fix that you hadn’t considered yet! Let’s run through the options:

  • Brush and floss! You may have food stuck between teeth that’s causing the odor.
  • Keep a food diary or mentally go through the details of what you’ve been eating. If it’s anything with a particularly strong odor, start avoiding it. Your breath may clear up.
  • Drink more water to see if it helps your breath. When oral tissues become dry, you get a smelly mouth due to bacterial buildup.

When It’s Really Time To Come See Us!

About that chronic bad breath we mentioned: Sometimes, your quick fixes at home won’t work because your problem is bacteria you cannot get rid of. Or, because you’re dealing with an oral health problem like an infected tooth that’s making the bad scent. You could have dry mouth that’s too severe to fix on your own. The list goes on. When your efforts don’t pan out, just come on in and we will solve the mystery!
