The Root of Bad Breath

Posted .

Bad breath is often associated with people who don’t take very good care of their oral health. While that may be true in some cases, in many it’s actually a chronic problem that can’t be cured with a bottle of mouthwash.

The root of bad breath is actually something that you’ll need professional help with handling. If you’ve ever wondered how to deal with your bad breath, you’ve come to the right place.

What causes it?
Certain bacteria that build up in your mouth – which are essentially decomposed pieces of sulfur – are the main culprit of bad breath. A dentist can usually spot this bacteria buildup within moments of glancing inside your mouth. If you’ve had issues with bad breath, ask Dr. Nicholas A. Jamison II to look in your mouth to see if you have an abundance of this bacteria.

How to treat it

The best course of treatment is usually an increased oral health routine that includes flossing and brushing, along with mouthwash use. Mouthwash is incredibly effective in cleaning up the bacteria and germs that your brush and floss couldn’t get to. It’s these remnants which usually cause bad breath.
