There are the obvious issues, of course, that can result in bad breath. Maybe you ate a whole onion because you just really like them. Now, your breath smells bad. Perhaps you haven’t been brushing your teeth lately and you know that you really need to take control of your dental care both at home and at our Riverside, CA practice, so you can protect your oral health (and enjoy the lovely breath that comes with it). Or, maybe you’re scratching your head in defeat because you cannot figure out what’s wrong. Don’t worry. Your Riverside dentist can help!

Stuck Food

We know that this may come as a shock to you but food that’s stuck between your teeth or within a dental device can lead to bad breath. Remember that as organic matter breaks down (and bacteria work their magic), you can end up with a not-so-lovely smell coming from your mouth. This may occur if you’re choosing not to floss or you’re not doing a stellar job with this aspect of your dental hygiene. Or, you may have gotten food stuck but have hoped it would work its way out. Our suggestions: Always floss once daily. For stuck food that you cannot dislodge, call for our help!

A Not-So-Clean Prosthetic

How are you doing with cleaning your denture every day? Do you feel that you can successfully clean your entire bridge, including the space between the bridge and your gum tissue? Are you feeling like cleansing your smile with your new dental implants in place is easy? Whether you are dealing with any amount of damage to a prosthetic or you’re just not cleaning it thoroughly (this is often the case when you just need some additional guidance), this can lead to bacterial buildup and bad breath. Make things better by checking in with our team for a visit with your Riverside dentist!

Tooth Decay Or Infection

Your Riverside dentist reminds you that an untreated issue like a cavity or infection can also lead to bad breath. Treat it soon by seeing us for a visit (and agreeing to restorative care)!
