Dealing With Bad Breath

Bad breath is a common issue that everyone deals with from time to time depending on what they eat, drink, or whether or not they are ill. However, some people find that they are constantly plagued by bad breath that has a negative impact on their social and/or professional life. If you are dealing with bad breath on a regular basis, it is time to speak with your dentist. Your dentist is your greatest advocate against dealing with bad breath as s/he is the expert with all concerns of oral health.

What is Plaque?

Plaque is a thick buildup that occurs throughout the body and prohibits certain aspects from functioning properly. Plaque buildup that occurs in the arteries does not allow proper blood flow to and from the heart, leading to significant health issues. Plaque buildup that occurs inside the mouth leaves your entire oral health susceptible to infection, decay, disease, tooth loss, diabetes, and even heart disease. Dental plaque should never be ignored or overlooked; in fact, it is quite easy to control.

Your toothbrush was designed to help you clean your teeth. Can you remember the last time you replaced your toothbrush? Do you know how old your toothbrush is? If you answered, No, then it is time to get a new toothbrush!

Your Diet and Your Teeth

Many people correlate their dietary choices with their general health and their weight. While their diets definitely have an effect on these, there is another area that is commonly overlooked when it comes to dietary choices: the teeth. When you stop and think about it, it makes sense that your dietary choices affect your teeth because every food and beverage that you consume must enter through the mouth.

Is Mouthwash Necessary?

A stop on any drug store’s oral health care aisle will supply plenty of options for toothbrush colors, toothpaste flavors, and bottles of mouthwash. While your dentist has repeatedly reminded you about the importance of brushing at least twice a day and flossing daily, you may not have heard much information regarding mouthwash.
