Bad Breath Treatment in Dalton, GA

Bad breath can be a serious issue. Surveys have shown that people find oral odor to be a major turn-off, even more so than having stains on clothes, being bald, having yellow teeth or acne. While many people may think that all they need to do is gargle with some mouthwash to get rid of their halitosis, they could be wrong. People with particularly bad breath should visit a dentist in Dalton to get it professionally treated, since halitosis could actually be the sign of a serious dental problem.

Bad breath isn’t just caused by onions and garlic. Rather, everything you eat can result in halitosis. When you eat, it’s not just yourself that you’re feeding. You’re also feeding the millions of bacteria that live inside your mouth, who then produce waste, which causes bad breath. However, food is not the only thing that can lead to oral odor. Tooth decay and plaque can cause bad breath, which is why people should visit a dentist if their mouth consistently smells. A buildup of plaque can cause gum disease, and even lead to teeth falling out, but luckily our Dalton dentists can remove the plaque that brushing and flossing can miss.

Also, dry mouth is a common cause of bad breath, which is another thing that should be treated by a professional. When the mouth is dry, then there is no saliva to wash away the cavity-causing bacteria in the mouth. Dry mouth can be caused by oral issues or certain medications, which is something that our Dalton dentists will be able to help determine and treat. Skipping meals is another common cause of dry mouth, since eating helps stimulate saliva production. People with bad breath should consider keeping gum with them at all times so they chew on something to keep saliva flowing.

Finally, if all of these reasons aren’t enough for people to visit a dentist do help get to the bottom of bad breath, there’s still one more. Serious diseases such as some cancers, and conditions such as metabolic disorders can cause bad breath as a result of the chemicals they produce in the body. These conditions should not go undiagnosed, and a dentist will be able to rule out other potential causes of halitosis and determine if you should visit a doctor to get screened for cancer or other diseases.
