So, you’ve got a pretty serious case of bad breath? If you feel like you must have done something terribly wrong or you cannot figure out what you must have eaten because you’ve gone as bland as humanly possible in the last couple of weeks, take heart: There’s an answer, you’re probably just fine, and your Riverside dentist is here to help! Realize that many patients don’t completely connect the dots between oral health issues and breath, which is where our Riverside, CA team comes in: Bring us your breath concerns and we will offer explanations and solutions!

Be Honest About Your Habits (And Ready To Change)

You might convince yourself that you are doing a good job with your dental hygiene because you don’t want to admit that you’re not. However, we encourage you to be very honest about your daily and long-term habits. If you are, then you may quickly be able to pinpoint along with your Riverside dentist that the underlying reason for your bad breath is just a buildup of plaque and tartar. The reason for it?…

You’re not brushing every day twice as we suggest, you’re skipping flossing, or it may even be that you haven’t been receiving twice-a-year cleanings. Being extremely devoted to completing each part of your preventive care doesn’t always seem that important until you deal with bad breath that won’t go away … and you realize it was easy to prevent! Avoid this symptom and other more serious issues that come from poor hygiene by getting back on a path toward optimal home and professional preventive care.

Get Ready To Take Care Of Concerns

When you visit our team, we may determine that your smile is mostly healthy but that it is dry. Did you know that dry mouth can lead to bad breath because it gives bacteria the chance to multiply? Fixing this issue may require you to drink more water (and more). Or, we may determine that you’ve got an oral health problem like a cavity or infection causing your concern (remember that lots of bacteria will smell yucky, thereby causing breath issues). Agree to the recommended restorative care that will solve the problem and you’ll have a fresh mouth again, suggests your Riverside dentist!
