Halitosis, also known as bad breath, is generally a result of poor dental health habits, and it can also be a sign of other health conditions. Dr. Amir Nikraz understands that consistent bad breath can be extremely annoying, which is why he is thrilled to provide bad breath treatment in San Clemente, California!
Bad breath occurs when the food that you eat breaks down and is absorbed into your bloodstream. Eventually, the food is carried into your lungs, and the smell is then projected into your breath. The bad breath will not pass until the food has digested through your body, but brushing or flossing your teeth and using mouthwash will temporarily cover the odor.
To prevent halitosis, our dentist at Artistic Dentistry recommends doing the following things:
- Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride-contained toothpaste
- See your dentist every six months
- Drink a lot of water
- Keep a record of the foods you eat
- Stop smoking or using tobacco products
Sometimes bad breath is a result of gum disease, and if this is the case with your specific situation, we are happy to help you with our periodontal treatments.
