Oh, That Breath! What To Do When It Gets Bad?

Sometimes, you wake up in the morning, your breath is quite awful, you brush, and all is well. Other times, you try and try to make it all better but not matter what you come up with, you find that you are still plagued with some very bad breath. What to do about this dilemma? You can’t exactly hide it (especially if you speak with others frequently) and it’s something that even you notice all day long. You realize, too, that if your mouth smells this terrible, it could mean something is wrong. Give yourself a moment to take a deep breath, let it out (just make sure nobody is nearby!), and then relax. Our Columbia, TN team has the help you need.


Check Your Diet For Culprits!

Our team suggests you begin by asking yourself if you happen to be eating something on a seriously consistent basis that might be the villain in your bad breath story. Before you assume that you need professional dental care to fix the problem, if you can identify an extremely smelly food, then you might want to first shake up your diet. Scratch this particular food or ingredient from your daily life and see what happens. If your breath’s freshness returns, you know how to manage your mouth’s scent!

Check Your Dental Hygiene Habits For Problems

Right, if you know it’s not the food you’ve been eating, then ask yourself how clean you’re really getting your smile. If you are not extremely consistent with twice-a-day, two-minute brushing sessions, as well as once daily flossing, and you aren’t coming in for cleanings and checkups two times each and every year, then bad breath can come from too much plaque and tartar.
