What Causes Bad Breath?

There can be several causes of bad breath.  The most common cause is a buildup of bacteria in your mouth, which give off noxious odors.  Studies have shown that eighty percent of bad breath is caused by an oral source.  That source may be a cavity, gum disease, food particles stuck in your teeth, cracked fillings or less than clean dentures.  There are also internal conditions that can cause bad breath, or can cause your existing bad breath to worsen.  These conditions include diabetes, liver disease, respiratory tract infections, and chronic bronchitis.  You will also want to rule out diseases such as acid reflux, postnasal drip and any other causes of chronic dry mouth.

How to Cure Bad Breath

So you have bad breath.  Here’s how to get rid to rid of it and keep it away.  The best way to ensure your bad breath hits the road for good is to see your dentist.  You should schedule regular cleanings at least twice a year.  Having your teeth professionally cleaned will ensure that any oral causes of your bad breath are taken care of.  You should also brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day.  Although regular toothbrushes work just fine, many dentists recommend investing in an electric toothbrush.  Electric toothbrushes are better for two reasons. First, most electric toothbrushes have a timer in them that ensures their users brush for the right amount of time.  Second, electric toothbrushes distribute uniform motion, which helps remove plaque buildup from the surface of the teeth.  Mouthwashes and mouth rinses also offer some help in your fight against bad breath.  If you buy a mouth rinse, ensure that it is an antiseptic or antibacterial rinse, which kills bacteria, instead of a cosmetic rinse that simply focuses on freshening your breath.

What you eat may also affect how your breath smells.  Eat a healthy, well balanced, diet and regular meals.  Certain diets, such as extreme fasting or low carbohydrates, can give you rancid smelling breath.  You should snack on raw carrots, celery, apple slices or other watery fruits or vegetables.  It should go without saying, but avoid breath busters such as garlic, onions, and a variety of other spicy foods.

Be sure to stay hydrated.  Drinking a lot of water helps keep food debris from getting stuck in your teeth.  Do not drink too much coffee.  Coffee is a difficult smell to get rid of.  You may end up carrying that cup of joe you had in the morning around with you for the rest of the day.  Don’t smoke or use other tobacco products.  Smoking gives people terrible breath and the smell is almost impossible to get rid of.

Bad breath is a terrible problem to deal with.  When I was in high school and college I used to worry constantly about how my breath smelled.  I was always chewing gum and using breath mints.  Finally, it occurred to me that the best option was to be obsessive about brushing and flossing my teeth, and using a mouthwash twice a day.  Sure enough I never again had a problem with bad breath and even landed myself a beautiful girl.  If your bad breath refuses to go away the best thing to do is go to the dentist.  A professional cleaning is usually enough to get rid of the stench.  If it lingers, do not be shy about consulting your dentist about other methods.  They are knowledgeable in the causes and cures for bad breath and will almost always be able to find a solution.  So breathe easy my friends, bad breath is not here to stay.

Arranging Dental Purchases

Making purchases as a new dental practice startup does take some planning and it's important to make sure that any time spent making such purchases is done in a controlled and intelligent manner. This may mean looking at the purchases in such a way that they are made over time according to the level of need associated with the device or machine. Sometimes a dentist or office will be better off with specific machines on hand immediately, while other machines can come along at a later date in the purchasing cycle for the overall office equipment acquisition plan. 

Needing Powerful Cleaning
