Bad Breath Treatment (Halitosis ) near Yonge and Eglinton

While we sleep, saliva production decreases and our mouths dry out, providing the perfect environment for odour-causing bacteria. Halitosis, otherwise known as bad breath, can come from a number of different sources, such as dry mouth, decomposition of food particles in and around your teeth, and foods that contain certain sulphur compounds such as garlic and cabbage. To learn more about bad breath and the best ways to prevent it, click here.

Halitosis can also reflect medical conditions, ranging from chronic infections in the lungs to kidney and liver failure. Dieting and fasting can slow down the stimulation of saliva flow and result in "offensive" breath. Talking for long periods of time will dry out your mouth with the same result.

How to Treat Halitosis

  • Floss and brush teeth to remove food particles and eliminate bad breath causing bacteria
  • Scrub your tongue with toothbrush since more than 50% of bacteria that causes bad breath can found there
  • Keep your mouth moist and avoid sugar beverages. The est move is to opt for water instead!
  • Visit your dentist regularly to keep your teeth looking healthy. Your dentist can also spot causes of halitosis or periodontal disease.
Remember, if your concerns go beyond morning breath, please ask us for more information. Dr. Paula is a certified bad breath dentist and Dr. Paula and the Yonge and Eglinton dental staff are glad to assist you and offer the best oral hygiene tips.
