Charlotte: 7 Surprising Causes Of Bad Breath

bad breath treatment Dilworth

Charlotte men and women who have chronic bad breath understand the embarrassment and frustration associated with this condition. There are several possible causes, some that are often overlooked by our Charlotte patients.

  1. Poor oral hygiene
  2. Digestive problems
  3. Systemic infection
  4. Bacteria on dentures
  5. Gum disease
  6. Food particles on tonsils
  7. Dry mouth

At Christopher A. Bowman, DDS, PA, we can help you with this unpleasant problem. If your bad breath is the result of poor oral hygiene, you’re in luck – this is one of the easiest types to treat. If you have visited our Charlotte dental blog before, you know step one: make sure you brush for a full three minutes and floss before you climb into bed.

People who have no idea how long they brush can set a timer (there is probably one on your smartphone). In addition to cleaning tooth surfaces, scrub your tongue! Then take the time to carefully floss around each tooth to remove the plaque between your teeth and keep your gums healthy.

Some extra-careful Cotswold oral hygiene pros brush after each meal to prevent bacteria-causing food particles from sitting on their teeth during the day. In addition to freshening your breath, practicing proper oral hygiene will improve your health.

Schedule an examination and deep dental cleaning at Christopher A. Bowman, DDS, PA in Charlotte. Our dental hygienists will get all the plaque and calculus off your teeth. During your examination, Dr. Christopher Bowman will determine whether you have a dental problem that is contributing to your breath.

Possible dental causes include a cavity, a broken crown, or gum disease. If Dr. Bowman suspects that your bad breath is caused by a non-dental problem, such as a respiratory infection, you will be referred to an appropriate Dilworth area medical professional.

Treating bad breath in Charlotte starts with a visit to Christopher A. Bowman, DDS, PA. In addition to general dental care, we provide a complete menu of cosmetic dental services including smile makeovers, sedation dentistry, and restorative dentistry. Call 704-307-2821 today!
