Bad Breath Treatment At Southern York Smile Care
Posted:Jun 22, 2018
Do you think you have bad breath? At Southern York Smile Care in Shrewsbury, our dentist can help patients overcome this unpleasant, irritating, and potentially embarrassing condition.
Bad breath (halitosis) can occur when bacteria grows in the mouth. Breath mints and mouthwashes do not cure bad breath, they only mask the symptoms. Proper oral hygiene can cure many cases of bad breath.
However, in some cases, bad breath is caused by more serious health issues. Sinus and tonsil infections, acid reflux, ulcers, diabetes, hypoglycemia, kidney malfunction, and eating disorders are just some of the problems that can cause bad breath.
If you have bad breath, the first thing to do is make sure you are cleaning your teeth, gums, and tongue thoroughly. This does not mean you should brush as long and forcefully as possible. Brushing too vigorously is dangerous to gums and contributes to gum recession. At Southern York Smile Care, we help patients of all ages learn safe and effective brushing, flossing, and tongue cleaning methods.
And don’t forget regular professional cleanings. Our friendly dental hygienists are trained in the latest and most effective deep-cleaning procedures. Your teeth feel so good after being cleaned professionally!
