DRY MOUTH & BAD BREATH
Dry mouth and bad breath treatment at Jarvis Family Dental
What causes dry mouth and bad breath?
Bad breath is often a result of poor oral hygiene, such as failing to regularly brush your teeth, floss, or use mouthwash. It can also be caused by certain foods and other bad lifestyle habits.
Dry mouth is also a potential cause of bad breath. Our mouths need saliva for moisture, to kill plaque-based acids, and to flush dead cells and bacteria living in our mouths.
A lack of treatment for these issues can lead to serious illnesses or infections over time.
Preventing bad breath
In order to prevent bad breath, make sure you brush, floss and use mouthwash daily. This will help remove and kill bacteria, plaque and tartar that builds up over time. Neglecting to take care of your teeth and mouth in a routine manner can lead to bad breath and other, more hazardous issues for your oral health.
