If you weren’t already aware that you have been handling your breath in some particular way, our Columbia, TN team is here to offer you some helpful enlightenment! One way or another, this is just what you’re doing. Remember that your breath may be fresh, not so great, or all-out terrible, depending on how things are going with your oral health. With that in mind, we encourage you to think about how your breath is smelling these days, as we help you connect the dots between your approach and the outcome. Have additional questions? Come in soon!
You Maintain It
It’s very possible that you’re doing a wonderful job with maintaining your breath and that you have good breath. You may not even realize that you’re maintaining it. However, here’s what’s likely going on with your dental care: You’re keeping your oral health in good shape because you’re brushing your smile every day, twice a day. You’re also remembering to floss your smile every day! In addition, it’s likely that you’ve been keeping up with your preventive appointments with us, which allows you to enjoy a smile free of plaque and tartar buildup, so it smells just fine!
You Mask It
We feel it’s important for us to point out that you may think you’re doing a fairly good job with your dental care. However, you have bad breath that isn’t awful but doesn’t go away. Remember that this is usually what happens when you brush and floss (and schedule visits) some of the time but you’re not fully dedicated to your oral health. The result? The aforementioned plaque and tartar buildup cause unpleasant odors. So, you mask them with things like minty gum or mouthwash!
You Address And Treat It
If you’re someone who has developed bad breath but you have decided that rather than mask it, you want it to actually go away, you have chosen to address and treat your oral health concern! Whether it’s simply the decision to get back into the swing of things with dedicated dental hygiene and cleanings with us … or if you have followed through on receiving restorative care for a bad-breath-causer like tooth decay … we applaud you! Treating the problem and recovering good breath means you’re truly caring for your smile.
